About this title


The Panzer Lehr Division was one of the most élite German armored formations in existence in early 1944. Its baptism of fire was in the deadly Normandy bocage. Although suffering heavy losses in Normandy, the Division continued to fight in North-West Europe until the end of the war, seeing particularly notable service during the Ardennes Offensive and in the Ruhr.

The first volume in the new Helion series WWII German Military Studies prints an extensive number of reports written by former officers of the Division, principally its commander Fritz Bayerlein. Virtually all of these reports have remained unpublished since they were written soon after the end of WWII. They cover all aspects of the Division's history, although with particular emphasis upon events in Normandy, the Ardennes and Germany. A number of the reports include detailed order-of-battle and other organizational data.

Important though the reprinting of these documents is, this book is made doubly important thanks to the linking text and expert annotations from editor Fred Steinhardt. In effect, this book provides an extremely detailed chronological history of the Division's activities, in greater detail than has yet appeared in print before.

About the Author:

Born in 1943, Fred Steimhardt received his Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral(in Botany) degrees from Cornell University. A lifelong passion for Military History blossomed after retirement from teaching secondary school science into a second career translating and editing German Military History from World War II with a number of unit histories and other accounts from both the Eastern and Western Front. He now makes his home in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado with his wife Victoria.
