First release of the new collection "PANZERS NORMANDIE 44 SERIE".

This book tells the unpublished history of the SS-Panzer-Regiment 2 "Das Reich" (DR) during the Battle of Normandy, one of the 10 Panzer-Regiments engaged in the summer 1944. Removed for reconstitution from the Russian Front in Decem­ber 1943, this Panzerregiment benefits from an impressive operational way and contains in its rows the largest number of tankcrew-members having been decorated of the most prestigious German awards. Under command of SS-Ostubaf. Tych­sen, this unit is going to be engaged without cohesion against the American strengths in the region of Saint-Lo-Periers. Decimated in the battle of Bocage, surrounded in the Coutances-Roncey-Pocket, this regiment had only about twenty Panzer for the Mortain's offensive (Luttich). Then the Retreat to the Seine, at the end of August, 1944. After seven weeks in operations, the regiment has been practically annihilated.

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
