Description

These photographs are taken from three unpublished albums featuring the German invasion of Poland in 1939. One set was taken by an SS officer, another by a regular officer and a third by a soldier attached to a medical unit. Included are German units on the move, tanks, artillery, and aircraft. There are several shots of recently knocked out Polish vehicles, captured Polish troops and civilians. The shots reflect the rapid pace of the German advance through Poland, some of the cities, towns and villages show signs of heavy fighting, whilst others appear to be untouched. One of the sets show a German unit mounted in fast open cars, heavily armed, speeding through the Polish countryside, another features armoured vehicles and engineers and a third the ambulance teams moving up to the front through devastation and chaos. Throughout there are numerous opportunities to see uniforms in their various guises and how they were actually worn in practice. There are shots of earlier German troops at rest and preparing to move forward again. AUTHOR: Jon Sutherland has written extensively on military history and warfare. Much of his previous work has concerned the American involvement in the European World War I and the European theatre of World War I & II. Diane Canwell has written works on European history and is much involved in the research for this book. SELLING POINTS: Outstanding ground shots of this brutal German invasion Portrays the misery of the blitzed Polish population and armed forces Unique unpublished wartime photographs 120 illustrations *
