Covers the SS recipients of the German Cross in gold for combats while assigned to the 2.SS-Panzer-Division "Das Reich". 

This volume examines the balance of SS recipients awarded the German Cross in Gold for operations while assigned to the 2. SS-Panzer-Division “Das Reich.” The detailed format follows that previously established in “German Cross in Silver Holders of the SS and Police” as well as the initial volume on Gold holders. Full biographies include promotions, decorations, appointments, and posts with in-depth tangent data. Especially significant are the combat narratives that resulted in the award. Numerous holders of the decoration contributed photos and documents for this lavishly illustrated volume, essential for the historian and SS collector alike. Appendixes examine the Order of Battle development of the armor contingents, a new divisional Order of Battle to platoon level, and element commanders. Finally, an addendum adds newly uncovered details and illustrations to the previous volumes. With the continuing support of Waffen-SS veterans, this series breaks new ground in scope and detail. Foreword by Knight's Cross recipient  Ernst Barkmann. 

Hard cover, small format, English text, 432 pages and 247 photographs / illustrations







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.
