THE GERMAN ARMY 1939 - 45 #5 WESTERN FRONT 1943 - 45 Men at Arms Series Osprey Publications By Nigel Thomas
In this the final title of the sequence, Nigel Thomas covers the high command, the developments of unit organization, the campaigns and the uniforms and equipment of the last two years of the war in North-West Europe and Italy. Despite the huge pressure of fighting on three front, ever-worsening shortages of manpower and equipment, and Allied command of the skies, Germany's decimated divisions fought on with impressive skill and determination. This period also saw a fascinating mixture of obsolescent, newly designed, and field-made combat clothing which gave the German soldier a radically different appearance from his predecessor of just five years before.
