German Infantryman : Eastern Front, 1943-45 3 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Elizabeth Sharp

Part of the Warrior series

Description

This third volume of a successful mini-series examines the German Infantryman in the latter part of World War II.

The German Infantryman on the Eastern Front was constantly in retreat, often short of equipment, sometimes hungry, cold and wet.

Nevertheless, and despite the overwhelming numbers of Soviet troops and armour facing him, the German Infantryman's resistance was always fierce, and although constantly moving back towards Germany, his defensive withdrawals cost the Russians dearly.

During this period defensive tactics involved close artillery and tank cooperation, even at small unit level.

Containing previously unpublished photographs and poignant first hand accounts, this book explores in superb detail daily life, duties and combat action.
