Combat stories of eight German infantry soldiers: one paratrooper, two members of the Waffen-SS, and five members of the Wehrmacht A concluding chapter examines infantry tactics This is an authentic account of German infantry aces, common foot soldiers who were thrust into a blazing maelstrom of bloody horror the world had never seen. On the frozen Russian steppes, under the scorching African desert sun, and in the final desperate battles, they were outnumbered and outgunned and faced impossible odds. Here are the fascinating stories of the men who stared death in the face during some of the most brutal battles ever waged.

"Bravery on the field of battle has been an aspect of war since conflicts first began. 'Heroism under enemy fire' and 'selfless devotion to duty in the face of overwhelming odds' are phrases echoed in all armies, since bravery is not dependent upon nationality or cause. The recognition of such acts, however, is more affected by fate, and the infantryman has historically often been passed over in favour of the dashing cavalryman or the ace fighter pilot."--Book Jacket.

Exciting stories of the infantrymen who supported Germany's tanks How tanks and infantry cooperated at the small-unit level First time in English The panzergrenadiers were the footsoldiers who went into battle alongside the Third Reich's feared tanks. Whether in the Wehrmacht or Waffen-SS, these troops endured all the horrors of infantry combat--fighting hand-to-hand, storming enemy positions, and rescuing fallen comrades--but they did so in the shadow of thundering giants like the Tiger and Panther. Kurowski tells the stories of some of the very best of these mechanized infantrymen, bringing them and their actions to life.
