German Bravery in the Field, 1939-1945. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “The brief biographies that form the text of this book include men who advanced through the military hierarchy via all three of the routes (nobility, National Socialist fervour, heroic acts). They include the aristocratic von Amim, scion of a family which had supplied the German Army with general officers for centuries; the intellectual Westphal, who served as the la to several senior officers, and the paratroops hero Schaefer, a sergeant who held the vital position of Cactus Farm in Tunisia. It should not be a source of surprise that men of quite junior rank are recorded here, for their ability, skill and bravery demanded that they be included in these pages, just as it would be incorrect to assume that only senior commanders were capable of bringing a battle to a successful outcome.”
