PANZERS IN THE SAND: THE HISTORY OF PANZER-REGIMENT 5,
                                                                                    VOLUME TWO 1942-45

by Bernd Hartmann






Panzer-Regiment 5 joined Erwin Rommel in North Africa and helped the Desert Fox win an impressive string of victories during 1941. The Germans began 1942 with an offensive that quickly captured Benghazi and then drove east toward the fortress of Tobruk, before being halted by the British at El Alamein in October. By 1943, the African campaign had shifted west to Tunisia. Crippled by supply problems and Allied air superiority, the Germans surrendered in May 1943. The remnants of Pz-Rgt 5 were eventually reconstituted as Panzer-Abteilung 5, an assault gun unit, and sent to the Eastern Front. Featuring scores of photographs and vivid firsthand accounts from members of the unit, this second volume continues the combat history of PzRgt and PzAbteilung 5, from the sand and sun of North Africa to the bitter end near Berlin.

First published in German in 2002, these two volumes are a comprehensive history of Panzer-Regiment 5 by a veteran of the formation.

EXORCISING HITLER

by Frederick Taylor 

 

The Occupation and Denazification of Germany. Germany had entered the twentieth century prosperous and strong. During the 1930s, embittered by a lost war and scarred by mass unemployment, Germany embraced the dark cult of National Socialism. Within less than a generation, its great cities lay in ruins and its shattered industries and its cultural heritage seemed beyond salvation. This is the story of Germany’s year zero, telling of the final Allied campaign, the hunting down of the Nazi resistance, the vast displacement of peoples, the competition between Soviet Russia and the West and the hunger and near starvation of a once proud people.
