Hitler’s Army will prove to be an extraordinatory gift for anyone interested in the military history of that event as it examines how the German war machine was beginning to take shape in the early 1930s an dhow Hitler and the Nazi party transformed it and a nation still angry over its loss of WWI into a powerful instrucment of revenge. I've just scratched the surface; there is a lot to this book and its done well. I hope Mr Stone will do a sequel on the American, British and Russian Armies; it would make an excellent collection. 5 people found this helpful.

This was Hitler's Army, 1939–45: The Men, Machines and Organization

This was Hitler's Army, 1939–45: The Men, Machines and Organization. In June 2015, the publication of David Stone's tenth book, The Kaiser's Army: The German Army in World War One, provided in practice a sequel to 'First Reich' and a prequel to Hitler's Army, 1939-45, enabling him to expand upon and update his earlier coverage of the German army of that period in Fighting for the Fatherland.

Davies is able to succinctly cover Divisional organization, weapons, and tactics in one, 176 page, volume. Most of the book covers "Equipment" (Chapter 5) and "The Men and their Accoutrements" (Chapter 6). While not going into any great depth, the information, such as German chart and tactical symbols (also used on vehicles), and their meaning, are an important rare find. It's too bad more people have not read his work.

Hitler s Army is an essential reference for anyone seeking a definitive explanation and analysis of one of Europe s most formidable fighting forces

Hitler s Army is an essential reference for anyone seeking a definitive explanation and analysis of one of Europe s most formidable fighting forces. It is also a balanced and indispensable aid for those wishing to understand how the much vaunted and apparently unbeatable German army that went to war in 1939 and so speedily achieved military pre-eminence in Europe, was consigned just over five years later to total military defeat and the ignominy of unconditional surrender in a devastated, demoralised and shattered Germany.

  • Wow. Great book.

    Solid 5-star rating.

    I would like to provide textual content on that Rating as part of this Review, however am unable to do so. The ACDLT has restricted (without warning, specific notification, identification of specific problems or appeal). That being so, an inability to respond to Review comments by others (positive, negative, indifferent) would be unfair to myself and others.

    But it is a solid 5-star book in this genre.

  • Excellent book and a great seller.

  • I have read most of the WW2 volumes, of which the book "Second world war" by John Keegan, is by far the best. This one is not too bad, and is notable for having a lot of pictures that i have never seen before.

  • I love this book it's got so much information, I mean like tons!!! I remember seeing this book on a shelf at borders back in 2010! I'm glad someone was selling it. Because most people know already that borders went out of Business. Any way im glad I own this book!

  • Deep and interesting research. I've always been curious about some points as salary for example, that are rarely mentioned in other books.

  • very good book.good quality

  • Great book

  • Mr Stone has created a reference book that describes the development, organization, operational procedures, training, equipment, officers and soldiers of Hitler's Army from 1933 to 1945. This large volume consists of eleven chapters, a conclusion, a large appendix and glossary. To highlight the key ingredients of this book is beyond the scope of this review but there is a lot packed into this book and I'll just give a brief summary.

    The book begins with the long History of Prussian leadership and works its way to post WWI and the rise of Hitler, Nazism and his impact of rebuilding the Army and rearming the country from the depths of the Versailles Treaty.
    The author also briefly covers 16 campaigns of WWII that includes all fronts. The Eastern Front receives the most attention. To me, this was the weakest chapter in the book due to its briefness but the author does acknowledge in his introduction that it was unfortunate but out of this purview to enlarge it.
    The author moves on to describe the Structure of Military Power, including organization charts, Command and Control, auxiliary units and much more in this area. Officers and soldiers get their coverage and includes indoctrination, duty and discipline, training, doctrinal updates.

    Other chapters includes uniforms, personal equipment and weapons. A section is also included on Insignia, Decorations and Awards. To complete the narratives, there are photos of the uniforms, equipment and insignias. The weaponry includes a range from pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers to panzers. There are over a hundred photos that support this text. The photos of insignias and decorations are close up shots and are quite revealing. There are also a few illustrations like an exploded view of a stick grenade.
    In addition to the Rifle and Panzer Divisions, a special section covers the supporting services that includes logistics to reconnaissance to engineering to intelligence. Another chapter includes Tactics and Special Operations and includes both offensive, defensive, delaying and withdrawal techniques. It includes airborne, mountain, winter, desert, amphibious and counter-partisan warfare.

    The narrative ends with the demise of the Wehrmacht and the Third Reich.
    There is also an extensive Appendix which includes information on the Wafen SS. It also has summary tables of the key weapons and equipment. A German-English Glossary is also included. A Notes section, Bibliography and Index close out the book.

    I've just scratched the surface; there is a lot to this book and its done well. I hope Mr Stone will do a sequel on the American, British and Russian Armies; it would make an excellent collection.
