From the cover: “The fierce fighting for the Normandy beach-heads in June 1944, the subsequent Allied breakout and drive to the Seine, the epic battles for Arnhem and Bastogne and the final breakthrough into the heart of Germany, have been the subject of untold numbers of books. Rarely, however, is the story told from the German viewpoint. Drawing entirely on German wartime photo archives, this is the fifth title in a new series which will build into a superlative reference library on all aspects of the war. It covers both the German Army and SS Panzer personnel and their uniforms, weapons, tanks and other vehicles.

The photographs have all been carefully chosen for interest and quality as well as rarity, and the result is a unique record of one of the epic campaigns of all time. In addition there is an introduction by well-known military and war gaming author Bruce Quarrie which outlines the course of the campaign and the main tank types used by the Germans. There is also a campaign map, an appendix listing the German Panzer Order of Battle in June 1944 and a useful glossary of German military terms. The result is another outstanding title in this outstanding series which will delight military historians and provide inspiration for modellers and war gamers.”
