Operation Barbarossa: Volume IIA concerns the Wehrmacht. All the significant German weapon systems and combat squads used in the campaign are analysed using the quantitative methodology detailed in Volume I, along with the contextual history. An assessment of each weapon system's inherent 'combat power' is provided, as well as attributes such as the relative anti-tank, anti-personnel and anti-aircraft values. Volume IIA then focuses on the detailed Kriegstarkenachweisungen (KStN, or TOE) for German land units (including those in the West), as well as the unit's actual organisation and equipment. All significant units in the German Army (Heer), Waffen SS, Luftwaffe and security forces are included; ranging from the largest panzer divisions, down to small anti-aircraft companies, military-police units, Landesschutzen battalions, and rail-road and construction companies. In all cases the data is presented in detailed tables, using the weapon systems and combat squads previously analysed.

The Art of BMW Motorcycles presents the rolling sculptures that are BMW motorcycles in studio portraits, each bike accompanied by a short history of the machine. All the classic bikes are here--pre-World War II BMWs like the R5 that defined performance in that era; the military R12 that carried the Wehrmacht as it blitzkrieged its way across Europe; the R75M that accompanied Rommel’s Panzers in North Africa; the Earles-forked R69S that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar; the R90S café racer; and the GS (Gelände Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution. All the bike families are covered: the side-valve machines from the early years, the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the postwar Airheads and Oilheads, the four-cylinder and six-cylinder touring bikes, the early pushrod singles, the modern overhead-cam singles, the latest parallel twins, and inline-four cylinder sport bikes. From the first model, the R32 that launched BMW's motorcycle dynasty, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World Super Bike dominating S1000RR, this book captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence.

Ever since Max Friz first mounted his innovative M2B32 opposed-twin engine in a motorcycle frame in 1923, the history of BMW motorcycles has been defined by a constant and relentless quest for perfection. In the 95 years that have followed, the company has created the most innovative and technologically advanced motorcycles produced anywhere on earth. BMW has earned a reputation for not doing things the way everyone else does, but its motorcycles aren’t different simply for the sake of being different. Each distinctive feature represents a brilliant and elegant solution to a real problem, leading BMW to be the first company to introduce many of the features that were later adopted by other manufacturers. But there’s more to a BMW motorcycle than innovation and technology—there’s also art. And as beautiful as the bikes are in their totality, they may be even more so when broken down into their individual details. This book captures the elegance of these amazing machines, both in their details and in the sum of their parts, through the masterful photography of Henry von Wartenberg and writing of author Peter Gantriis. The Art of BMW: Ninety Years of Motorcycling Excellence features the Peter Nettesheim collection, one of the world’s premier collections of BMW motorcycles. These wonderfully restored pieces exemplify the design and engineering prowess that have defined the BMW motorcycle tradition for almost a century. DIVPhotographer bio: Henry von Wartenberg was born in Mar del Plata, Argentina, in 1967 and has been a professional photographer since 1990.
