PANZERS IN THE DEFENCE OF FESTUNG POSEN 1945
Describes the bitter 1945 battle for Festung Poznan. That Polish city, occupied by the Nazis since 1939, was declared a fortress (Festung) on January 20, 1945, and for the whole month it saw heavy fighting between Wehrmacht and Waffen SS troops and the Red Army advancing directly towards Berlin. Among the garrison of the fortress a special part was played by a small heavy Panzer unit which possessed just one Tiger tank, two Panthers, one Panzer IV and a handful of Sturmgeschutze. Despite the difficulty and sparsity of sources, the authors were able to acquire an impressive wealth of information and memoirs, as well as rich iconography. Includes 63 b/w photos, 4 b/w ills, and 3 b/w maps.1 vol, 160 pgs 2018 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
