The Panther battalion of the 116. Panzer Division, during the Battle of Normandy. During the night of 19-20 July 1944, the I./Pz.Rgt. 24's 76 Panthers set off in a one kilometer column, four yards between each tank. There would now be new battles for the veteran Panzerschützen; for the recruits, this would be their baptism of fire.

This book by Didier Lodieu – one of France's foremost specialists on the fighting in Normandy – traces the odyssey of the 1st Battalion of Panthers of the 24th Regiment of the 116. Panzer Division, just back from the East... From the first engagements in July to the crossing of the Seine at the end of August... a day by day account of the terrible fighting during the "hedgerow" war.

Hard cover, large format, 128 pages, over 300 wartime photos and color illustrations, English text

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.
