Bildchronik der rheinisch-westfälischen 126. Infanterie-Division

This comprehensive photo book traces the difficult, self-sacrificing path of the 126th Infantry Division through the Second World War in words and pictures.
Günter Braake has selected 500 of the most impressive photos from thousands of pictures, including all branches of arms and men, non-commissioned officers and officers in the book on an equal footing. The result is a versatile, gripping and gripping photo documentation about an infantry division that went through the hell of many battles during long years of war and left more than 10,000 dead on the battlefields.

The 500 photos and texts give the reader a lasting impression of the path and fate of the 126th Infantry Division: from the formation in Sennelager and the training in East Prussia, the advance in the north of the Eastern Front, the struggle at Lake Ilmen, at the Volkhov, around Demjansk and around Leningrad, through all the years of the war, until the retreat battles in the Baltic States and the end in Courland. Sketches and detailed texts (written by retired Colonel J. Feist, Dr. Gerhart Lohse and Dr. Richard Merkel) guide through the illustrated book and provide additional information and explanations, making the book a document whose significance no one can escape. This photo book created a diary in pictures for those who were there at the time and an important documentation of war history for those who want to know what it was like – back then more than forty years ago. The incorruptible lens of the camera allows the viewer of the book to become an eyewitness to the sacrifice of a German infantry division deployed at many focal points of the fighting.
