James Lucas takes a comprehensive look at the German Army (das Heer) as it evolved during the Second World War. In particular the book focuses on its origins in the post-Versailles Treaty era and its resurgence under the Nazi regime; training and organization during the war years; equipment, vehicles and weapons; uniforms, ranks and insignia etc. He also describes the parts played by the Waffen-SS and the airborne arm of the service, the Fallschirmjager. Although neither force was strictly army, both fought as ground troops under Army commanders. Illustrated with almost 200 photographs and line drawings, this is an indispensable and fascinating guide to one of the most feared armies of the twentieth century.
