Are there any available that cover these soldiers and their awards?

This would be some 130 plus individuals.

Patrick Agte completed a manuscript for such a book about 10 - 15 years ago. I have seen it during a visit to his home. Plenty of good original photos and text in German. Unfortunately, he was never able to find a publisher. Possibly because of the widespread war crimes of those two divisions. Because Agte already had a manuscript ready for publication Mark Yerger told me that he decided not to include the I.SS-Pz.Korps in his DKiG series.

I am surprised that JJF did not purchase the english rights with their history with publish other Agte books. This book is similar to JJF's The Face of Courage too.

Thanks for the information John Moore!

"Face of Courage" was mass published by Stackpole.
