Sir Max Hastings, recipient of the 2012 Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing, has written one of the classic accounts of World War II. Days after the D-Day invasion, a Division of battle-hardened soldiers from the vicious and unrelenting battlefields on the Eastern Front, the 2nd SS Panzer, “Das Reich,” marched north from the safe confines of the south France to reinforce the defenders of Hitler's Fortress Europe on the beaches of Normandy. During their march they were hounded for every mile of their march by saboteurs of the French Resistance, as well as by agents of the Allied Special Forces. Das Reich profiles - in Hastings’ characteristic prose - the horrific reprisals that the 2nd SS Panzer Division exacted upon the citizens of Tulle and Ordour-sur-Glane, which resulted in 99 and 642 deaths, respectively. Das Reich is a chronicle of the some of the most appalling atrocities of World War II.About the Author:
