Small repairs to lower edge of d.j., of Vol. II but no loss o/w overall FINE. This trilogy forms the most comprehensive organizational study of the German military machine in World War II. Based on German military documents and exhaustively researched, this important reference gathers together unprecedented organizational detail for some of the most famous (and infamous) units of the Third Reich. The first volume provides the most complete organizational study of the history of all of the German panzer divisions, panzer grenadier divisions, cavalry divisions, anti-tank units and all army and corps artillery formations operating in World War II. It includes an analysis of the evolution of the panzer arm in the 1920's and 1930's and the conflicting pressures and policies directing that process. The second volume identifies each infantry unit operating between 1939 and 1945, and details the organisation and precise composition of the formation. All types of infantry are covered from regular infantry, light infantry, mountain troops and security troops to replacement and reserve divisions. The development of unit structure is also traced from the precise formations that invaded Poland in 1939 to the hastily organised and depleted forces available to defend the Reich in 1945. A definitive trilogy. Three Volumes.
