Hitler's Commanders: German Action in the Field 1939-45 is an easy to read, well-written book furthering one's historical knowledge of the personal lives and exploits of fourteen pivotal commanders within the Nazi war machine throughout many battle fronts. James Lucas has used his expertise to put down in text these attention-grabbing and detail-orientated stories of these fourteen men collected in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in World War II history, specifically German military history and its commanders.

MSC Reviews

Ian Baxter has compiled a horrific but necessary record of Belsen and its liberation., and he has let many of the pictures speak for themselves. This is the sort of book that is necessary today to remind people what happened and remind us how easily it could happen again. This is a testament to those murdered and the reasons why we should never forget.

I really enjoyed reading more about a fascinating aircraft and how it was operated, plus the bonus of all those historic archive aerial reconnaissance photos which are now shared for us all to see. Alongside many of them are some modern arial shots in colour to compare with how things looked 70 years ago.

A very personal account of life on the railways and in Britain's 1st Airborne Division. Worth reading.
