About this title

Synopsis:

After a disastrous defeat in World War I, Germany's military was reduced to a shell from its former imperial-era might and glory. The war had driven home the impact of advances in military technologies-machine guns, artillery, and tanks, among others. The 1918 defeat and the strictures of the Versailles Treaty actually created and strengthened the will in the new German Reichsheer to learn from unsuccessful operations and, despite all limitations, to turn itself into a professional and forward-thinking force. The treaty had reduced the German army to 100,000 soldiers, divided between infantry and cavalry. RIDING INTO THE TWILIGHT comprehensively covers the evolution of the lance-equipped horse soldiers of the 1920s to mixed formations of armored vehicles, bicycles, and mounted troops as the Wehrmacht expanded and went to war. After six years of mounted fighting, a final review in Austria marked the end of the last, largest, and arguably most effective cavalry force in any modern army. Those battered survivors rode into the twilight that had already greeted many other countries' mounted soldiers. -456 pages and 575 color and black & white photographs in 8-1/2"x11" format; this volume is a must-have for both military history buffs and those interested in the history of cavalry.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
