9781849086479: Hitler’s Armies: A history of the German War Machine 1939–45 (General Military)

The definitive work on Hitler's war machine, charting its evolution from the formidable force which won stunning victories during the Blitzkrieg in 1940, to the hard campaigns it fought in the deserts of North Africa and the frozen wastelands of the Soviet Union to the eventual retreat to the Fatherland itself. Drawing upon Osprey Publishing's unique archive, this volume expertly weaves together the story of the development and deployment of Hitler's armies displayed alongside a stunning collection of original artwork and photographs to show the uniform and equipment of the various land forces.

Review:

“This 424-page book was compiled from Osprey Publishing's archives. Editor Chris McNab has done an excellent job of drawing from what must have been a mountain-high pile of possible material to create a very readable, illuminating and invaluable reference text ... Anyone interested in the history of WWII would enrich their library by acquiring this rather comprehensive book, especially hobbyists seeking inspirations for model figure and armor projects or toy soldier collectors building diorama scenarios.” ―Toy Soldier & Model Figure (August 2013)

“Mr. McNab has done a remarkable job condensing this huge task into an informative and useable book. I highly recommend it!” ―Frederick Boucher, AeroScale

“[A] sturdy volume... a good book for World War II collections.” ―Library Journal (October 1, 2011)
