about

  • Accounts of what it was like to command a tank in combat
  • Contains maps, official documents, newspaper clippings, and orders of battle

    Volume Two follows Michael Wittmann and his unit into Normandy to defend against the Allied invasion. A week after D-Day, Wittmann achieved his greatest success. On June 13, 1944, near Villers Bocage, the panzer ace and his crew attacked a British armored unit, single-handedly destroying more than a dozen tanks and preventing an enemy breakthrough. The exploit made Wittmann a national hero in Germany and a legend in the annals of war. He was killed two months later while attempting to repulse an Allied assault, but the book continues beyond his death until the Leibstandarte's surrender.

  • Patrick Agte has written a biography of another renowned tank commander, Jochen Peiper (0-921991-46-0).
