COMBAT HISTORY OF THE 10. PANZER-DIVISION
Autore: Albert Schick
- tradotto dal tedesco traccia, con dovizia di particolari, la storia della 10^ divisione corazzata tedesca,
Originally written in German, this unit history covers the history of an unusual Panzer Division of the German Army in WW II. It describes its establishment shortly before the Polish Campaign and its combat record through the Polish 1939, French 1940 and Russian (until early 1942) campaigns. The Division was withdrawn from Russia and was refitted in France during 1942. Then, instead of returning to the Eastern Front, at the end of November 1942, it was sent to Tunisia to oppose the Allied landings in North Africa where it fought until the German forces there surrendered in mid-May 1943. For unexplainable reasons, the 10. Panzer-Division was not re-established, and so its impressive history ended prematurely.This complete divisional history is a good mixture of command level descriptions of the movements and fighting, as well as personal small unit accounts.
