A masterful reference to the German war machine of World War II…

An illustrated reference from the Blitzkrieg battles of 1940 [CB: surely 1939] to the final defeat.

It existed for only a decade and served a megalomaniacal leader and heinous regime, but Nazi Germany's Wehrmacht was one of history's great armies, soldier for soldier and general for general the finest of its age and a force that will be forever studied by everyone interested in military strategy, tactics, and training.

The combination of innovative 'blitzkrieg' strategy based on rapid mobility, Auftragstaktik -- mission-oriented tactics – that gave field commanders unusual freedom to respond to changing circumstances, and the discipline, initiative, and tenacity of the German infantryman made the Wehrmacht difficult to defeat even with overwhelming manpower and firepower.

Now Easton Press presents the comprehensive and fully illustrated guide to Nazi Germany's 'war machine': HITLER'S ARMIES, a magnificent Collector Edition bound in leather and accented with 22kt gold.

Hitler's ground forces from 1939 to 1945.

Opening with an introductory essay on how the defeated and dissolved German army was reborn after World War I, HITLER'S ARMIES chronicles the Wehrmacht through the six years of World War II, from the blitzkrieg conquest of Europe and the contests in North Africa and the Soviet Union through its slow retreat to the Fatherland and complete defeat in 1945.

Organized by campaign and battle histories, these pages cover all the German operational ground force units -- including the Waffen-SS and Fallschirmjäger (paratroopers) – examining their function, role, and performance in the conflict as well as their organization, weapons, equipment, uniforms, training and tactics.

Hundreds of color and archival black & white photographs, combat artwork, and gorgeous water-color plates provide a detailed view of weapons and uniforms. Clear and concise battle maps make it easy to follow army movements and unit positions over major battles and campaigns.

Full of surprising information such as the Germany Army's dependence on horse-drawn transportation and the combat role of teenage “Hitler Youth” soldiers, HITLER'S ARMIES is the definitive illustrated account of this legendary military force.
A comprehensive reference in a superb Collector Edition.

Easton Press has created for this expert guide to Nazi Germany's army a superb Collector Edition, the work of experienced American craftsmen with an uncompromising commitment to excellence in bookmaking.

The binding is premium leather, hand-selected for this Collector Edition. The spine features the traditional raised “hubs” and is embossed with 22kt gold. The acid-neutral paper is designed to reveal every detail of the brilliant illustrations and preserve these images for generations.

The pages are not merely glued but Smyth-sewn into the binding for superior strength – a traditional technique that allows the pages of this large volume to lie open flat. Moiré end sheets and glowing gilded page ends add beauty and durability. No detail has been overlooked – there’s even a convenient satin-ribbon page-marker.

Comprehensive, detailed, and magnificently illustrated, the leather-bound Collector Edition HITLER'S ARMIES is an indispensable reference – and perfect one-of-a-kind gift -- for anyone interested in World War II or military history.
