Michael Wittmann and the Waffen SS Tiger Commanders of the Leibstandarte in World War 2 : Vol. 2 Paperback

Part of the Stackpole Military History series

Description

Barely two months after leaving the Eastern Front, Michael Wittmann and the Leibstandarte found themselves in Normandy facing the Allied invasion in June 1944. A week after D-Day, Wittmann achieved his greatest success, single-handedly destroying more than a dozen British tanks and preventing an enemy breakthrough near Villers Bocage. He was killed several months later while leading a Tiger battalion against an Allied assault. The Leibstandarte went on to fight at the Battle of the Bulge and in Hungary and Austria before surrendering in May 1945.
