MAKING TRACKS: TANK PRODUCTION IN CANADA

by Clive M Law




The first ever examination of the unknown story of WWII Canadian tank production, based on official reports & coupled with many recently uncovered photographs. The vehicles described in this book proved that Canada was capable of developing & constructing tanks which could more than hold their own, but the realities of economy of scale meant that Canadian Divisions eventually came to be equipped with American Armoured Fighting vehicles.

MORTAR GUNNER ON THE EASTERN FRONT: VOLUME I

by Hans Heinz Rehfedlt

The memoir of Dr. Hans Heinz Rehfeldt covering his service in Russia, Hungary, Lithuania and the Battle for East Prussia. In 1940, Rehfeldt volunteered for the Panzer Arm, but was trained on heavy mortar and Machine Guns with Grossdeutschland Division. He was on the Front from 1941 fighting for the city of Tula, south of Moscow. Battling in freezing conditions. In 1942, fighting near Oriel, however, his batallion suffered heavy losses and was disbanded. Ill with frostbitten legs, Rehfeldt was treated in hospital and once recovered was dispatched to the Front. Following battles at Werch and Bolchov his batallion again suffered heavy losses and it merged. In agony from severe frostbite to his legs, Rehfeldt defied the odds and astonished his surgeon when he walked again. He was promoted from Gunner to Trained Private Soldier in 1942, and to Corporal for bravery in the field in 1943.

GERMAN ARMOURED FORMATIONS IN THE OZAK 1943-45

by Stefano Di Giusto 

 

In World War II, aside from the battlefields in the West, the Eastern Front and in North Africa, there was another small area where the Panzers ruled: the OZAK (Operations Area Adriatic Coastland), a large area which included the north-eastern border regions of Italy and parts of present-day Slovenia and Croatia. What makes this area so unique are the German armoured formations deployed there with an exceptional range of strange vehicles, which could be found nowhere else on any other frontline of World War Two. This publication looks at this exciting area of Wehrmacht Panzer history. Anglo German text and captions.
