Other Stackpole books

Post by Forward00 » 29 Jul 2018 14:30

Currently have Kurt Meyers Grenadiers, Michael Wittmans Volume 1 and 2 and 12th SS. These are all probably the most popular and were my first books that I bought, but now am looking for something different.
What can you recommend me?

Thank you

Greetings,

What are you looking for?

German WW2 accounts in general, weapons, Luftwaffe, Army, Navy, early war, late war, Western Front, Eastern Front?
So much to choose from.

For Germany is another good biography. It is on Otto Skorzeny. The SS officer that coordinated Mussolini's rescue in 1944.

Lots of Stackpole books are great. Death of a leaping Horseman and Island of Fire are first rate

Just a caution, Stackpole books are "Perfect Binding" (glued in pages)
The most imperfect binding ever used for books......
"My hat and scarf Nester"...

Greetings Forward00

Winter Storm is good, but I haven't read War of the White Death.

You also might like Mechanized Juggernaut, about horses in the German Army. Armor Battles of the Waffen SS and Tigers in the Mud all are from Stackpole.

Sorry it is just a biography. Actually autobiography.

Red road from Stalingrad
Beyond Stalingrad
Panzer aces (mixed reviews, how accurate is this book?)

"Beyond Stalingrad" is a very, very dry analysis of Manstein's reaction to the Soviet Winter counteroffensive 42-43- It's hard to comprehend/enjoy fully without studying texts of Glantz and Nipe & some unit histories.

Panzer Aces I-III are poorly written, unsourced biographies most probably assembled from biographical and award data- part fiction, part fact. Not "useless" but worth browsing at best.
