Steel Inferno: Ist SS Panzer Corps in Normandy Paperback / softback
Steel Inferno provides a unique insight into the experiences of 1st SS Panzer Corps, one of only two units in the German Army which bore Hitler's name, during their fight against their Allied adversaries in Normandy.
This meticulously researched book also explores the origins, formation and organisation of the unit, and examines some of their more remarkable achievements during this bitter fight.
It also lays to rest the myth that these two remarkable Waffen-SS divisions were annihilated in Normandy.
In fact, though the Allies could never forget or forgive the attrocities the Wehrmacht and SS troops commited, many admired the Panzer Corps, and one compared fighting with them to 'fighting with tigers'.
