This reprint of Panzerkampfgruppe Strachwitz: A Photographic Study of the Battles for the “Ostsack” and “Westsack”, Narva 1944 written by Michael H. Pruett has long been overdue. It describes in text, and excellent photographs, operations by the Germans to reduce two bulges in the Front at the beginning of 1944. The German forces were commanded by the famous German Panzerkommander, Hyazinth Graf Strachwitz. The armor of Panzer-Grenadier-Division “Feldherrnhalle” participated in the operations, as did Tigers of schwere Panzer-Abteilung 502. Famous Tiger Ace Otto Carius led his Tiger in the fighting (as he described in his book, Tigers in the Mud).
Many of the photographs are full-page and of excellent quality.
Hard cover. 9″ x 12″. Landscape format. 120 pages. 145 photos. 1 map. English text.
