Offensive gegen Kursk: Das II. SS-Panzerkorps als Stoßkeil im Großkampf. Gebundenes Buch
In the spring of 1943 the war situation was tense for the German Reich. From Scandinavia to Africa, one had to ward off the increasingly oppressive supremacy of the Allies. In this situation, a major offensive in the Kursk area should give the German leadership the opportunity to act. For this purpose, a huge force of Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS units was merged. The battles that went down in history as "Operation Citadel" were the biggest battle in world history to date. This book describes the events of the days and weeks of July 1943 from the perspective of the II. SS- Panzerkorbs and thus also the involved SS-Panzergrenadierdivision "Leibstandarte", "Das Reich" and "Totenkopf". The heavy fighting and performances of the associations are described as they actually experienced the participants. The war diary, printed commands, maps, and a variety of photos give the reader an authentic impression of the Waffen SS fight.
