    A Prayer...

    I do not know PantherStrike, but I send a prayer anyways, knowing that Panther can use all the hope he can get. <p>


    Hang in there Panther! I really hope you will end up okay. I wish I could say I know how you feel... but I dont. My dad had cancer, and my 2 year old cousin might. I send support to you family, and support to you. Like I said, I don't know you, but I still send prayers your way, because you need it.<br>
    From,<br>

    The Lerh Division From Normandy to the Ardennes

    Elite Panzer Strike Force; Germany¿s Panzer Lehr Division in World War II, by Franz Kurowski describes the actions of the PLD from its origins to its final combat. Specifically, Normandy, the Ardennes, and several minor conflicts are covered. There are some first hand accounts and reports included to give fact to the writing. What is uncommon is that this book covers the war from the German point of view.
    The Battle of Normandy dominates most of the book. From the build up of the PLD to its role in slowing the Allied advance that other forces may have time to regroup and fall back. Generalleutnant Friz Bayerlein is the person of import, in this conflict. Many of the accounts of historical record are his admittance. He led the Panzer Lehr Division from Normandy to the Ardennes and beyond. Described is also the role of Allied air power and the effect it had on German forces.
    After discussing the retreat of German forces from the Atlantic Wall, the Ardennes is brought into play. Once again, there are detailed reports and meetings discussed here. Again, the book covers the build up of German forces in anticipation of the counter attack. The Panzer Lehr Division is followed from the build up to the operation¿s stall. And, the slow retreat of the Germany army afterwards.
    Several indices are included at the end of the book. These include ¿rank comparisons¿, awards given, ¿division manning charts and rosters¿, ¿engagements and battles of the Panzer-Lehr-Division¿ and ¿Panzer-Lehr-Division order of battle¿. This book is a real page-turner and I would recommend it for any military enthusiast.
