Hitler's Panther Tank Battalions 1943-1945 by Ian Baxter

Pegasus Archive review: The Mk V Panther was designed to become Germany's front line panzer of choice during the final years of the Second World War, complementing the more formidable yet expensive and less numerous Tiger, and despite issues of mechanical reliability is regarded as one of the finest tanks of its day, being very well armoured and capable of knocking out any Allied opponent. The carefully selected photographs in this book and their detailed captions document the development of the Panther from its 1943 debut at the Battle of Kursk and its subsequent use in Italy, through to the Normandy battles and the final days of the war. The large and high quality images show it in a variety of camouflages and situations, and they also depict its variants, including the impressive Jagdpanther tank destroyer. The book closes with appendices detailing the Panther's specifications and the composition of typical panzer, panzergrenadier and reconnaissance battalions in 1943 and 1944. Price 14.99. Copies may be purchased from Amazon or https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Hitlers-Panther-Tank-Battalions-19431945-Paperback/p/18523

 

The Nazis' Winter Warfare on the Eastern Front 1941-1945 by Ian Baxter

Pegasus Archive: Germany's struggle against the horrendous winter weather on the Eastern Front proved to be as challenging and costly as its battles with the Red Army. It of course lost the fight with the latter, but from unpromising beginnings when the Wehrmacht discovered that it was wholly unprepared and ill-equipped for the winter of 1941, it improvised, learned to cope with, and ultimately mastered the conditions. This entry in the "Images of War" series shows the chaos of that first winter, with the heavy rains turning dirt roads to impassable quagmires, followed by the arctic conditions which brought the advance to a halt as men and equipment froze. Later photographs show the many types of shelters they learned to construct, and these are featured alongside illustrations from the Winter Buch of 1942, which instructed the troops how to build a variety of shelters out of and beneath the snow, from those which could be hastily improvised to cover a single man, to igloos and much larger and complex ones which incorporated fires and chimneys, and could protect a tank. The large photographs cover a broad range of subjects, and many different infantry units, roles, artillery and vehicles are included. Price: 14.99.

Douglas DC-3 by Robert Jackson

Pegasus Archive review: The DC-3 has a special place in the history of aviation, with its classic design establishing new benchmarks for reliability and luxury, and it was so successful in pioneering new mail and passenger routes during the latter half of the 1930's that within a few short years 600 had been built and enjoyed a near monopoly on commercial air travel over the USA. This achievement was dwarfed by its performance during the Second World War, with over 15,000 military versions being produced as the C-47 Skytrain, otherwise known as the Dakota to the British and the Lisunov Li-2 to the USSR. It provided the Airborne Forces with a superb parachute dropping and glider towing aircraft, but above all saw ubiquitous service as a transport workhouse, carrying passengers and freight all over the globe, delivering supplies to forward bases and evacuating wounded on the return flight. This book summarises its service history, but with many colour photographs and renderings it is primarily intended as a superb reference for modellers, including a wide range of patterning examples and close up detail of numerous component parts. Price: 16.99. Copies may be purchased from Amazon or https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Flight-Craft-21-Douglas-DC-3-Paperback/p/18497

 

Hitler's Munich: The Capital of the Nazi Movement by David Ian Hall

Pegasus Archive review: The Bavarian city of Munich has a long and distinguished history as one of Europe's great cultural centres, but in the aftermath of the First World War it became a crucible for extreme right wing thought, as it was here that the Nazi Party was formed and where Adolf Hitler first entered politics, developing his considerable oratorical skills and quickly establishing a reputation as a venomously charismatic speaker. In 1923 it was also the scene of the failed Beer Hall Putsch, and shortly after the Nazis took power they transformed Munich into their spiritual home, with those killed in the attempt being all but deified with monumental buildings to commemorate their sacrifice as though they were legendary heroes of antiquity. David Ian Hall brilliantly describes the origins and rise of Nazism through the prism of Munich, exploring how each was shaped by the other, and how the violent and chaotic beginnings of their ideology was gradually transformed into a sinister cult. Price 25.00. Copies may be purchased from Amazon or https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Hitlers-Munich-Hardback/p/18559
