Publisher Comments:

Hitler's Army features a unique blend of graphics and text that brings a fresh approach to the development of the German army under the Third Reich. The most technically sophisticated charts, tables of organization, and maps available graphically illustrate the structural evolution of the most intensely studied army of the twentieth century. An insightful main text shows how the Wehrmacht's structure was increasingly contradictory to the military missions Hitler ordered it to undertake.

Hitler's Army also includes a novel analytical comparison of the U.S. and German armies in World War II, covering both organization and battlefield performance. The Luftwaffe field divisions, Waffen-SS units, and foreign voluteers that supplemented the regular German army are also given detailed coverage.

Innovative German weapons such as assault guns, tank destroyers, and rocket artillery are covered, and discussed in the context of German operatuional doctrine. The reality of German reliance on horse-drawnthe negative role of political interference and in-fighting, and other often-ignored impediments to German operations are candidly assessed.

Twelve key engagements, from Czechoslovokia 1938 to Berlin 1945, have been selected to show German organization and doctrine tested in action. For tactically significant battles like Demyansk, Narva, and Budapest 1945, readers will find much information not readily available in the English-speaking world.

Most of the maps and charts in the paperback edition are unreadable due to poor printing technique. I guess that those were reproduced from the hardcopy version by scanning. Unfortunately the scan was very poor.
