Panzer Wedge free pdf Written by war correspondents who watched Operation Barbarossa unfold firsthand By the end of 1941, having suffered significant setbacks in its offensive to take Moscow, the German Army and its armoured forces began to lose their aura of invincibility, both to the Allies and the German home front. This book, part of the Third Reich's attempt to bolster morale, showcases the actions of the 3rd Panzer Division. The division performed well in the early phases of Operation Barbarossa but experienced grave hardship in the drive on Moscow. Written by war correspondents who watched the battles unfold firsthand, Panzer Wedge has a unique "you-are-there" perspective that captures the heady spirit of the offensive's beginning as well as the dogged fighting that brought it to a halt. The book will appeal to anyone who enjoys accounts of World War II combat, especially tank warfare, and to historians researching how the war effort was reported on the German home front. It offers significant insight into the conflict that has so long captured the imagination of history enthusiasts everywhere.
