Published to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Normandy campaign, Panzers in Normandy Then and Now is a detailed study of the German panzer regiments in Normandy in 1944 as seen from the German side. The book is basically divided into two parts: the theoretical composition of the 1944 model of the panzer regiment, its equipment and personnel, and secondly, individual chapters on the seventeen panzer units which saw service in Normandy. In addition the book contrasts the scenes of the fighting that raged in the countryside and villages of this part of France with comparison photographs of the battleground as it is today. Research for this book also resulted in the discovery of the location of the grave of the most famous panzer commander, formerly listed as missing in action, when a Normandy roadside revealed its secret in 1983 as the last resting place of the victor of Villers-Bocage, Michael Wittmann.

Armorama

The author's writings are clear, and concise and are informative to the reader as to what he is seeing. Clearly an added benefit for any historical research book. Most of the images are detailed given the time frame. This image detail would be an invaluable resource for any modeler or historical buff.

AMPS

You get a combination of operations and first-person accounts of the panzers in action in a variety of battles, including a detailed look at the tactical acumen of panzer ace Michael Wittman.

It is interesting to see the comparison of the photos, one at the time/or close to it of the battle and one taken 30-40 years later.

IPMS/USA

This book will be of interest to modelers and military historians alike.
