Just mind this, it is biased and the story on the author and how he created his book is one in its own.
But simply for the amount of in depth information a must read for anyone who wants to know more about Wittman and his unit.
Simply because the author had acces to scources closed to anyone else.
And still does as he keeps those under lock and key and will not share anything.
The hard back is a larger format book , very well produced and heavily illustrated , again with many propaganda photos along side a huge number of private photographs which must have come from the Wittmann family , these photos show Wittmann the family man ( although still in uniform).
The book covers not only Wittmann but the other tank commanders of his unit , it is a useful book but it is worth keeping Wittmann in the context of his times and not allowing any aspect of "hero worship" blinding the reader to legend and the influence of "Tiger phobia".
Is the hard back worth the money - I do doubt it , hugely expensive and the paperback would in the long run be more worth while.
Wittmann's grave will continue to be the most visited grave in Normandy but how many who visit think of the other men buried with him ?
A good book but one written with rose tinted glasses .
