Originally written in German by Mr. Albert Schick, this unit history covers the history of an unusual Panzer Division of the German Army in WW II. It describes its establishment shortly before the Polish Campaign and its combat record through the Polish 1939, French 1940 and Russian (until early 1942) campaigns. The Division was withdrawn from Russia and was refitted in France during 1942. Then, instead of returning to the Eastern Front, at the end of November 1942, it was sent to Tunesia to oppose the Allied landings in North Africa. Arriving in dribs and drabs, it fought in Tunesia until the German forces there surrendered in mid-May 1943. For unexplainable reasons, the 10. Panzer-Division was not re-established, and so its impressive history ended prematurely.

This division participated in some of the most important battles of WW II, including: the capture of Brest-Litovsk, the crossing of the Meuse at Sedan, the bloody battle at Stonne, the capture of Calais, the crossing of the Beresina, the drive on Moscow, the desperate defense (as split-up battle groups) against the Russian attacks at the beginning of 1942, and Kasserine Pass.

This complete divisional history is a good mixture of command level descriptions of the movements and fighting, as well as personal small unit accounts. It also complements perfectly  the 10 .Panzer-Division, the photo album on the division by Jean Restayn and also published by us.

6" x 9" hard cover edition with acid-free paper, 572 pages, and includes 5 maps, 37 photographs, 1 complete order of battle and 4 organizational charts.

 







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.
