PANZERKRIEG: VOLUME1

by Jason D. Mark





The Battle of Stalingrad is perceived as a fierce, man to man struggle in the ruins of the city, yet the German 6 Armee possessed formidable armoured assets that helped it reach the Volga, defend its flanks and support assault groups within the claustrophobic confines of Stalingrad. In this first volume of a series on German armoured operations at Stalingrad, the combat histories of Panzer-Abteilungen 103, 129 and 160 will be examined in detail. These panzer battalions were incorporated into motorised divisions for the 1942 summer campaign, and were deployed to Stalingrad. As manpower levels dropped in their parent formations, the battalions assumed a greater role in holding lengthy flanks while the main body of 6. Armee laid siege to Stalingrad. After encirclement in November 1942, the panzers assembled for a break-out, and when that failed, they supported their struggling infantry brethren until fuel, ammunition and morale were depleted.

This is a large, heavy book weighing almost 2.5kg and will be subject to a supplement for shipping and insurance.

LAST DAWN: THE ROYAL OAK TRAGEDY AT SCAPA FLOW

by David Turner

 

On October 13th 1939, German U-boat U-47 silently penetrated the defences of Scapa Flow, Orkney. The pride of Britain’s wartime fleet had sailed leaving behind only HMS Royal Oak and a few smaller ships. Kapitan-Leutenant Günther Prien, commander of U-47, ordered the attack on Royal Oak. His first salvo of three torpedoes failed to do any damage. After an inteval to reload, Prien fired another salvo and this time there was a huge explosion. Royal Oak rolled over and sank within minutes. A total of 833 men died with her. Told through declassified photographs and naval records, as well as statements from survivors, this is a dramatic and moving account of the biggest loss of life in a single naval event in World War II.
