Also discussed in a survey of the campaign are the contributions of disease, lack of medical provision, nutrition, and weather to the demise of the army.

1-227280 Bilton, Joshua GERMANY IN THE GREAT WAR: Verdun & Somme For the Central Powers, 1916 was a year of trial and error, of successes and failures, of innovation, and of drastic changes. Tactics evolved, while war aims mutated to suit the inertia of trench warfare. Advances were aided, and often effectively countered, with the development of new weaponry.

Across all fronts, whether at home or in Poland, citizens and soldiers alike stood fast against Entente forces. On the Western Front, bitter fighting continued apace. To the east the armies of Austro-Hungary, Germany, and Bulgaria battled Entente forces. Meanwhile at sea, the German High Seas Fleet ambushed the Royal Navy off the coast of Denmark. On the Home Front, the poor harvest of 1916, coupled with a lack of transport, led to a winter of stark deprivation. As a consequence, the German government introduced what was effectively a system of rationing entitled, 'sharing scarcity.' In the south, Ottoman forces fought Allied soldiers for control of Kut and Erzurum, a fortified trading port in eastern Turkey.

Includes 500 contemporary photographs, many of which have never before been published. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2021 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-227290 Saunders, Tim 12th Hitlerjugend SS Panzer Division in Normandy Raised in 1943 with 17-year-olds from the Hitler Youth movement, the Hitlerjugend Panzer Division emerged as one of the most effective German divisions fighting in the West. The core of the division was a cadre of offices and NCOs provided by Hitler's bodyguard division, the elite Leibstandarte, with the aim of producing a division of 'equal value' to fight alongside them in I SS Panzer Corps. Includes 60 black and white illustrations and maps.

During the fighting in Normandy, the Hitlerjugend proved to be implacable foes to both the British and the Canadians, repeatedly blunting Montgomery's offensives. Despite huge disadvantages from constant Allied air attack, highly destructive naval gunfire, and a chronic lack of supplies and replacements, they fought with skill and a degree of determination well beyond the norm from D+1 to the Falaise Pocket1 vol, 320 pgs 2021 UK, PEN & SWORD
