(Subject: The Third Reich - Military Structure) An extremely rare diary by Sturmbandfuhrer Sepp Kraft, commander of SS Panzer-Grenadier Depot and Reserve Battalion 16. It is a detailed account of the Battalion's actions in the Arnhem Campaign, 17 September to 7 October, 1944. Battalion 16 was originally a training and replacement unit for the 12th SS-Panzer Division ‘Hitlerjugend’. The unit was in the Oosterbeek/Arnhem area on 17th September,the day of the Allied landings. Krafft’s battalion became embroiled in the battle where it distinguished itself, remaining in the Oosterbeek area for a total of three weeks, defending a sector of the Rhine. Krafft produced a post-battle diary detailing the units actions over the three weeks and submitted it directly to Himmler himself. This is an English translation of that diary. It consists of 31 pages of typewritten text plus 14 fold-out battle maps. It has apparently been rebound in foolscap brown boards and there is a pasted in facsimile of Heinrich Himmler's thanks for Krafft's birthday wishes. There is also the bookplate of a well known military historian/author.

THE LAST PANTHER: SLAUGHTER OF THE REICH

By Wolfgang Faust

(Subject: The Third Reich - Military Structure) Translated from the memoir 'Kesselpanzer' this is an account of the breakout from the Halbe-Kessel, April to May, 1945. While the Battle of Berlin is widely known, the horrific story of the Halbe Kessel remains largely untold. In April 1945, victorious Soviet forces encircled 80,000 men of the German 9th Army in the Halbe area, South of Berlin, together with many thousands of German civilians. The small town of Halbe became the eye of the hurricane for the breakout, as King Tigers of the SS Panzer Corps led the spearhead to the West, supported by Panthers of the battle-hardened 21st Panzer Division. This is a first-hand account by the commander of one of those Panther tanks. (Published: 2016) (Publisher: Bayern Classic Pubs.)

IRON CROSS BRIGADE

By Werner Gösel and Editor Christian Bauermeister

(Subject: The Third Reich - Military Structure) New from publisher. The story of Werner Gösel and Sturmgeschütz-Abteilung 244. Stalingrad, Kursk and Bobruisk are names synonymous with untold suffering and death, and the men of Stug.Abt.244 fought at each of them. Werner Gösel was deployed as a dispatch rider during Operation Barbarossa and after being trained as an officer, he returned to the front and was wounded during the opening stages of the Stalingrad battle. After recovering, he served with Sturmgeschütz-Batterie 395, but with the reorganisation of Stug.Abt.244 in early 1943, Gösel was recalled to his old unit and participated in the Battle of Kursk and the subsequent retreat. His tenure as adjutant from August 1943 onward provides an insight into the working methods of an assault gun battalion. In summer 1944, now a battery commander, Gösel was captured during a break-out attempt from the Bobruisk pocket. He returned from Soviet captivity five years later to post-war East Germany. This volume which is jointly edited by Jason Mark, is profusely illustrated and has three appendices, including the battalion's full war diary from 1943 plus a comprehensive lists of medal winners.
