Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each of Germany's World War II (1939-1945) armed services could claim one unit which earned a unique combat reputation, and which consequently was enlarged and developed far beyond the size originally planned. Hermann Göring, commander-in-chief of the air force, was determined that his Luftwaffe should share the glory of Germany's land conquests, and gave his name to a regimental combat group of infantry and Flak artillery. This élite unit was steadily enlarged into a brigade, then an armoured division, and finally into a two-division corps, fighting with distinction in Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, and on the Russian Front. This concise history is illustrated with rare personal photographs and eight colour plates, detailing the very varied uniforms and special insignia of this crack formation.

Synopsis:

Growing from a unit into a brigade, and from a brigade into an armoured division and finally a two-division corps, the Herman G$oring division performed with distinction in Tunisia, Sicily, Italy and on the Russian Front. The uniforms and insignia of this crack formation are described and illustrated here.

Synopsis:

The unit named after the Reichsmarschall started out as a Prussian Police regiment under Goring's control during the period of consolidation of Nazi power. With the outbreak of war it became a ground combat unitof his Luftwaffe. This work provides details of this crack unit.
