Ask a question about this product

Commencing an unprecedented study detailing all SS and Police holders of the German Cross in Gold by unit, the first of two volumes of this new series examines the holders of the 2.SS-Panzer-Division "Das Reich."  More than twenty years of research provide comprehensive information for the holders of this prestigious decoration to include the combat narrative that actually resulted in the award. Also included are all other awards, promotions, and known service history. Aside from full information on each individual, detailed data is provided for the various elements they were assigned to within the Division and other postings held in the course of their often diverse careers. Heavily illustrated with rare photos and documents, many were provided by the recipients themselves who fully supported the research. The actual award recommendation documents are seen and the approval process fully examined, adding to an invaluable study for the historian. The illustrations also provide a wealth of information for collectors of uniforms, insignia, medals documents, and autographs. An appendix includes the most detailed Order of Battle listing of commands compiled to date, as well as new data on the Division's Roll of Honor Clasp and Close Combat Clasp in Gold holders. Foreword by "Das Reich" Knight's Cross and German Cross in Gold winner Siegfried Brosow.

Hard cover, small format, English text, 432 pages and 295 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.
