THE GERMAN ARMY 1939 - 45 #2 NORTH AFRICA & BALKANS Men at Arms Series Osprey Publications By Nigel Thomas 

Details

Hitler first considered an invasion of Great Britain in autumn 1940, then scheduled Operation Barbarossa, the conquest of the European part of the Soviet Union, for May 1941. Anxious to emulate Hitler's successes, the Italian dictator Mussolini embarked upon unnecessary military adventures in North Africa and the Balkans, which forced Hitler's intervention, diverting and depleting precious German resources, and a six-week postponement of Barbarossa. In this second of four volumes on the German Army of WW11, Nigel Thomas examines the uniforms and insignia of the forces involved in North Africa and the Balkans.
