German Commanders of World War II Paperback / softback
by Anthony Kemp
Illustrated by Angus McBride
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
This fascinating study by Anthony Kemp outlines the careers and characters of a number of senior German commanders of the World War II period (1939-1945).
To those who read military history many of the names are familiar.
It is a paradox, however, that few biographies have been written.
The impression still exists today of German generals as stiff-necked, scar-faced, monocled Prussians.
Whilst in a few cases this was certainly true, the fact remains that all of them were men, some more ordinary than others.
With a variety of photographs, eight full-page colour plates by Angus McBride, accompanied by ten pages of commentaries, this is a first-class addition to Osprey's Men-at-Arms series.
