EYES OF THE DIVISION
The reconnaissance-bataillion of the 17. SS panzer-grenadier division Gotz von Berlichingen
Autore: Helmut Gunther
Following the previously-published Hot Motors, Cold Feet, Helmut Günther's exciting personal accounts of his service in WW II continue in this volume. The author's readable writing style is laced with cynical observations and humourous incidents. The reader experiences the day-to-day life of riflemen in a motorised armour reconnaissance unit. Movement, observation and combat as a mobile reserve were the missions of Günther's men mounted in Schwimmwagen. The first to advance, and the last to withdraw, that was their daily lot.
