Lauchert served with Panzer Regiment 35 of the 4th Panzer Division throughout the Polish and French Campaigns.
Lauchert's skill and energy as a Panzer leader caught the attention of such armor notables as Guderian and Eberbach.
In the summer of 1944, Lauchert was called upon to command Panzer Brigade 101, one of several new armored units hastily formed to restore the German Army's precarious situation in the East.

Despite reinforcement by the 15th Panzer Regiment, the 336th Infantry Division was unable to prevent the enemy from reaching Sovchos 79.
Manstein was forced to draw heavily from the Fourth Panzer Army to defend Rostov, and that sealed the fate of the Sixth Army in Stalingrad.
In what appears to be one of his few battlefield mistakes, Balck failed to fully reinforce the 16th Panzer Division, cautiously deciding to hold back a large portion of his forces to counter other landings instead of concentrating his forces opposite the area of the Allied landings at Salerno.

Panzer, who claimed for nearly 30 years that she has a bachelor of arts degree in political science from UW, lacks the foreign language credits required to complete her degree.
Panzer said she first placed the ban on her records in the late 70s, before she was involved with state politics, but the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that was after her first Assembly run in 1974.
Panzer has also made public claims that she was a research assistant in the state attorney general’s office.

As shown in our Sinister Forces book, the Waffen SS was not so much a branch of the armed forces as a collection of the armed feudal followers of various Nazi power centers.
As a variant for America Triumphant, all units of 3rd and 5th SS Panzer Divisions, plus the Army’s 20th Panzer Division and 502nd Heavy Tank Battalion, enter play as 25 December reinforcements if the historical reinforcement option is in use.
As a variant for Alsace 1945, all units of 3rd and 5th SS Panzer Divisions, the Army’s 20th Panzer Division and 502nd Heavy Tank Battalion AND the IV SS headquarters enter play as 25 December reinforcements in the Wacht am Rhein South scenario, and as 1 January reinforcements in the Nordwind scenario.

When the game that eventually became Panzer Grenadier came together in the 1980s, one of the initial design parameters was that it had to include cavalry.
There are some actual differences, though: Cavalry leaders have higher movement rates, and are required in order to launch a cavalry charge.
Players use the same counters as other leaders, and must keep track of which ones are cavalry leaders.

This book shows the maturity of a leader in the field in that he combines power conversion with motor control in one intertwined presentation.
It is not an introductory book on the subject and is optimal for those who already have some grounding in the principles of power conversion, electric machines, and their control.
Krause's book would make a good complement to Bose's because both tend to use the same generic GE motor notation and talk about motors and drives in a GE way.

 Achtung-Panzer! : The Development of Arm… by Heinz Guderian | LibraryThing
Panzer Battles: A Study of the Employment of Armor in the Second World War by F.
The book studies battles from the First World War which involved armour, particularly Cambrai, and possibly overemphasises the tank's role in Germany's defeat in the Great War.
In addition, the book is an interesting source with the development of mobile warfare between the wars in the major powers, and Guderian leaves a clear hint of warning not to toy with the Soviets in the near future.

The divisional histories talk about the military aspects, but only two books have focused primarily on the division's role in war crimes and atrocities (both in the sense of direct participation, and in a general sense, if one views the entire war in the east as an atrocity on a grand scale).
Bartov's book focusses on three divisions (the other two are the 18th Panzer Division and the 12th Infantry Division) and their experiences in Russia.
I wish to examine Bartov's book from this perspective - not as to whether or not he proves his thesis, but as to whether or not one can glean from his writings that the GD did in fact participate in these war crimes - as is taken for granted - at all.

Heinz Guderian, the German leader in tank operations and implementer of “blitzkrieg”-type warfare delivered early lightning-strike victories in France and Russia to Adolf Hitler.
A month later, the panzers performed the same maneuver and forced another one hundred thousand soldiers to surrender at Smolensk, then repeated the operation, capturing six hundred thousand near Lokhvista, on September 15.

The classic book on strategy by one of the foremost military thinkers of the twentieth century, "Strategy" draws on all of military history, from the Greek-Persian wars of the fifth century B.C. to the development of geurrilla warfare in the nuclear age.
The excuse for this book is that no recent biography of Scipio exists; the first and last in English appeared in 1817, and is the work of a country clergyman, who omits any study of Scorpio as a soldier!
The reason for this book is that, apart from the romance of Scipio's personality and his political importance as the founder of Rome's world...

 Second World War Books: Review
With the subtitle "I SS Panzer Corps in Normandy", he focuses on the actions of 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler and 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend, but this is by no means a one-sided account.
He begins his book with an overview of the origins and formation of the LAH and HJ divisions, in particular bringing into focus the individuals who will emerge as the key commanders during the Normandy campaign.
While at the very heart of this book is the undeniable fact that the men of the 1st and 12th SS Divisions proved themselves uncommon warriors, Reynolds examines archival records and concludes that the two units were never as weak and undermanned during the campaign as some of their champions have contended.

An account of the development and campaigns of the panzer forces that, along with the Luftwaffe, stood at the heart of blitzkrieg, by the man who created, trained and led them.
At the end of this book you come away with a good impression of Guderian and I feel that he was trying to make the best of a bad situation.
All in all this is a great book and gives a good perspective of the war from the German perspective from the rise of German military power to it's catastrophic downfall.

In this book, Hitler talks freely about his enemies, his friends, his ambitions, his failures, and his secret dreams, voicing his thoughts to intimate Nazi associates.
This is a small book at 109 pages but is also one of the most powerful documents ever written concerning the Nazis.
Gilbert was the prison psychologist who had unlimited access to Goering, Hess, Speer, Frank, Jodl, Keitel, Streicher and the others, all of whom revealed their innermost thoughts to him, including their day to day reactions to the trial, off the record opinions of Hitler, and views on the revelations concerning Nazi atrocities.

 German Memoirs
As Koschorrek says in his introduction, the book stands as a memorial to the huge numbers on both sides who did not survive and is, over five decades later, the fulfillment of a responsibility he feels to honor the memory of those who perished.
The book begins in the pre-Nazi period and covers all aspects of life in Hamburg's strong socialist working class community: street play, visits to the countryside, family gatherings and school life as well as the scout movement which was eventually to become the Hitler Youth.
This book then is a tribute to Roth and his comrades, and to all soldiers who aspire to commendable and honourable action during time of war.

General Guderian's book is certainly not for the WWII reader who wants a style like that of Ambrose or Ryan, but it does deliver on sheer content and insight from one of the greatest military minds of the second world war.
The book contains an incredible insight into the German High command, Hitler and his cronies and their disasterous blunders such as at Dunkirk and the gross under estimation of Soviet Russia in terms of fighting ability and technology.
I believe the book was lacking in the human perspective of the men who fought the war.

 Erwin Rommel
During the French campaign the 7th Panzer Division earned the title "Ghost Division" as no one knew were it was, including the German High Command.
He and Rundstedt disagreed over the location of the armor for the defensive battle; Rommel, chastened by his defeat in Africa and his experience with Allied airpower, was in favour of defeating the invaders before they could establish themselves ashore.
Rundstedt and Guderian expressed the opposite view, that adequate reserves of panzers were to be stationed far enough inland from the Atlantic Wall, so that they could be switched easily to the main invasion front once it had been recognised.

The book also exhaustively chronicles post-war trial for participation in the Malmedy Massacre, his incarceration and death sentence at Landsberg and his attempts to establish a civilian livelihood after his release.
In addition to providing interesting biographical details of this colorful personality, the book provides an intimate look at innumerable aircraft during their testing stages before becoming the legends of aviation history.

The first was when she lied on her resume about having a college degree, an offense that would have gotten her fired from many lesser jobs.

Panzer has now been caught lying twice, both times on fairly inconsequential issues where the truth would have done far less damage.

When I first read the books title Tramp in Armour I thought the book would be about a man that started off as a tramp ended up being a hero in a tank in the war, but no it is not.
The story swings from Bert (a British Matilda Tank) and her crew who are stuck behind enemy lines, and General Heinrich Storch, commander of the 14th Panzer division with his second in command Meyer, who are advancing across France under the command of General Von Rundstedt.
The book has a fast paced feel to it, just like the characters storylines (Bert's crew in their bid to get the hell out of dodge and the German Panzer's rush to get to the ports of France), every minute counts.
