Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An authority and frequent writer on Nazi Germany and the Second World War, Mitcham (geography, U. of Louisiana-Monroe) begins with a general account of the , armored branch, and the , military districts that were largely responsible for creating the divisions and maintain replacement and training systems. He argues that the system worked so well that historians have generally failed to recognize its importance to the German war effort. Then he lists each division, identifying its composition, home station, activity, commanders, and notes and sources. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
