5.0 out of 5 stars Story told in the first person, 6 May 2004
This review is from: Panzer Commander: The Memoirs of Colonel Hans von Luck (CASSELL MILITARY PAPERBACKS) (Paperback)
This is a great book regarding the personnal war memories of Hans Von Luck as leader of several german armoured and reconnaisance units throughout WWII. Very reliable and accurate on top of that. The author was present in virtually every major german war theatre, from the Blitzkieg to the Normandy landings and the last days of the Reich, facing the russian onslaught.
Gives a great prespective from the "guy in the trenches" and is a superb complement to Rommel's war memories (The Rommel Papers, edited by B. H. Liddell Hart) since Von Luck served under him in France (1940), Africa, and again in Normandy in 1944, allowing to fully understand the tactical effects of stategic decisions.
Von Luck actions in Normandy are also mentioned in Stephen Ambrose's book Pegasus Bridge. I recommend it.
