Hitler’s Army describes and analyzes every significant aspect of Germany’s WWII ground forces including their creation, organization, weapons, equipment, training and tactics. This book also considers its conduct in battle and its strengths and weaknesses. Hitler's Army is an essential reference, a balanced and indispensable aid for those wishing to understand how the vaunted, apparently unbeatable German army that went to war in 1939 just over five years later was consigned to total military defeat and the ignominy of unconditional surrender.

Review:

BookviewsHitler’s Army will prove to be an extraordinatory gift for anyone interested in the military history of that event as it examines how the German war machine was beginning to take shape in the early 1930s an dhow Hitler and the Nazi party transformed it and a nation still angry over its loss of WWI into a powerful instrucment of revenge. Filled with more than 300 photos, as well as multiple maps and diagrams, the author presents a complete picture of this intimidating force, while examining its conduct in battle as well as its strengths and weaknesses. How did this apparently unbeatable army go off to war in 1939 and, five years later, experience total military defeat and unconditional surrender? This book explains why.”
