German Armored Units at Arnhem

Armor at war 7039

Operation Market Garden was Field Marshal Montogomery’s brainchild. The plan was to launch airborne troops to seize bridges across waterways in southern Holland, including the Lower Rhine at Arnhem, to link up with British armor for a push to threaten the German industrial heartland of the Ruhr. The airborne forces were dropped eight miles west of Arnhem, where the II. SS-Panzer-Korps was recuperationg at that time. The German armor and infantry units of the II. SS-Panzer-Korps fought well, and the whole operation culminated in an allied defeat in the Arnhem sector. The Dutch author Marcel Zwarts spent a long time researching the German armor units (mainly 9.SS-Panzer-Division Hohenstaufen and 10.SS-Panzer-Division Frundsberg) that took part in the battle at Arnhem. Many photos in the book are gathered from private archives and never before published. The book is divided up per unit, each being further arranged in sequence, time and location. The well researched information provides the readers with an insight of the fighting from both sides.

This series provides an in-depth study of famous armored vehicles from various wars and conflicts. The carefully selected photos portray military vehicles in an interesting range of combat situations, and are supported by informative captions and an introductory text. The combination of fascinating combat photos will provide endless inspiration for fighting vehicle and dirama modelers. The 72-page format features no less than 150 high quality black and white period photos and a series of 16 colour plates.
