Das Reich : The March of the 2nd SS Panzer Division Through France, June 1944 Paperback
Part of the Pan Military Classics series
Within days of the D-Day lanings, the 'Das Reich' 2nd SS Panzer Division marched north through France to reinforce the front-line defenders of Hitler's Fortress Europe.
Veterans of the bloodiest fighting of the Russion Front, 15,000 men with their tanks and artillery, they were hounded for every mile of their march by saboteurs of the Resistance and agents of the Allied Special Forces.
Along their route they took reporisals so savage they will live for ever in the chronicles of the most appalling atrocities of war.
Max Hasting's powerful account of their progress is a true military classic.
