SOLDIERS TO THE LAST DAY: The Rhineland-Westphalian 6th Infantry Division, 1935-1945
Recounts the history of the German 6th Infantry Division from its formation in 1935 to its destruction at Babruysk in July 1944 and then its resurrection and continued fighting until the end of the war. Among the first divisions established by the Wehrmacht, the 6th Infantry Division had one of the longest and bloodiest records of continuous combat of any division-Allied or Axis. Presents the German view of the war from inside divisional headquarters and down to the individual Landser as the division marches across France in 1940, advances to the Volga during Operation Barbarossa, fights the brutal battles of Rzhev, Kursk, Babruysk; and makes last desperate attempts to defend the homeland in 1945.
