From Normandy to the Ruhr; With the 116th Panzer Divison in World War II
Bedford, Pennsylvania; (2001)
by Guderian, General Heinz Gunther
Bedford, Pennsylvania; (2001): Aberjona Press. First Edition. Octavo. 667p. The definitive work on the 116th Panzer Division which Eisenhower considered the most effective of the enemy's forces. The Allies deception led Hitler to believe the invasion would be at Pas de Calais although Rommel felt they should be close to Normandy. Besides detailed maps, battle plans and directives given by Hitler (against the wishes of his Generals), it has Guderian's details and insights with his full description of the problems with the German chain of command and the catastrophic consequences of political correctness that might have at least delayed the Allies victory by six months. Essential for the serious student of the events just before and during the Western front. Bound in gray pictorial paper covered boards accented in red and black. A lovely copy, nearly fine.
