The Illustrated History of the German Army in WWII

by John Pimlott



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
A full pictorial record of the German Army, from the prewar recruiting drive to the Reich’s final days.

Along with the Roman Legions and Napoleon’s Grande Armée, the German Army of World War II is considered one of the best-organized and most formidable military formations in history, sweeping all opposition away in the early years. Through more than 200 photos, Wehrmacht captures every major campaign, including the early Blitzkrieg (“Lightning War”) attack on Poland, the Low Countries, and France; the swift conquest of the Balkans; the long war on the Eastern Front; the fight for North Africa and the Mediterranean; and the final defense of the Reich. Key figures, such as Hitler himself, and famous generals such as Guderian and Rommel, are also included.

Dr. John Pimlott was Head of the Department of War Studies at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, UK until his death in 1997. His books include Guerrilla Warfare, Vietnam: The History, and Tactics and the Guinness History of the British Army.
