MICHAEL WITTMANN AND THE
WAFFEN SS TIGER COMMANDERS
OF THE LEIBSTANDARTE IN WWII, VOLUME I
by Patrick Agte
Wittmann was by far the most famous WWII tank ace,
destroying 138 enemy tanks and 132 anti-tank guns. This
classic of armoured warfare is both combat biography and
unit history, as Patrick Agte focuses on the life and career
of Wittmann, but also includes his fellow Tiger commanders
in the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler.
Volume One covers the Eastern Front, where Wittmann racked
up more than 100 kills and participated in the Battle of
Kursk in 1943. Includes maps, official documents, newspaper
clippings, and orders of battle.

The Blitzkrieg in the East,
1941-1945. The Ju 87 Stuka dominated the opening campaigns
of World War II. It was a primary weapon of German
Blitzkrieg tactics and the concept of lightning warfare.
Together with the panzer, it transformed air and land
warfare, with countries falling in days and weeks, rather
than after campaigns lasting years. With more than 100
photographs and detailed commentary, Stukas over the Steppe
captures the many roles adopted by these famous dive-bombers
as they blasted a path across Eastern Europe.

As early as
October 1939, Winston Churchill had proposed that, to back up
the Territorial Army, a second line of defence should be put in
place made up of men not already serving in the armed forces.
The role of this volunteer force was to guard vulnerable points
such as ports, railways and tunnels, key road junctions,
possible sites for amphibious invasion and areas which could be
attacked by gliders and paratroops. It was to become the Home
Guard, initially the Local Defence Volunteers or LDV.
Operational from 1940 until 1944, the Home Guard, comprising 1.5
million men, was given the nickname ‘Dad's Army’. This
extensively illustrated book tells their fascinating story.

From August, 1944, under the
pseudonym "Hornisse", forced laborers and concentration camp
prisoners constructed a shelter in Bremen Gropelingen for
the building of submarine sections by AG Weser. The
prisoners were held at KZ Neuengamme Concentration Camp,
located 15 km southeast of Hamburg. Eye witness accounts and
documents reveal the extent to which Bremen was covered by a
network of camps where many thousands prisoners suffered and
died. This is their story.
