WWII History, November 2008
"Following closely on the heels, or treads, of [German Panzers in WWII] is the equally impressive German Infantry in WWII. As with his previous book Bishop uses a lavish array of maps, charts and photographs to provide an overall history of the development and employment of Wehrmacht and SS combat units in every theater in which the German military fought...Illustrated with over 150 photos of German troops in action, this fact-filled book will be an essential resource for anyone with an interest in World War II in Europe, North Africa, and the Mediterranean."

"Sweat Saves Blood" 8. Juni 2010
Von M. G Watson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
So many books have been written about the Wehrmacht that for the interested reader, one suffers not from a lack but rather a wealth of choices. However, since books of this type are usually pretty expensive, the real question then becomes how, and where, to spend your money.

GERMAN INFANTRY IN WW2 (ORDER OF BATTLE)is -- despite its unimaginative and nerdy title -- is actually an enjoyable little read. I say "little" because the book is less than 200 pages and very light on text, centering mainly on maps, charts, graphs and a few pictures; but it would not be fair to call it superficial. Considering the brevity of the chapters, it does an admirable job of following the Reichsheer from its clandestine reconstruction after the Great War to the rearmament phase and the "bloodless conquests", and finally through all of the wartime campaigns right up to the bitter end in '45. The author, Chris Bishop, rightfully brings to light that while the panzers, Waffen-SS, paratroops and so forth get most of the attention from history buffs, it was the ordinary German infantry division, almost entirely without motor transport, inadequately supplied with food and equipment, and usually short on manpower -- which was the keystone of all German victories and successes in the war; and which, he adds, bore the brunt of the worst and most vicious fighting.

In addition to the campaign histories, the book shows the order of battle for the German armies throughout the conflict and the organization of typical divisions, which changed repeatedly as the war went on. It also includes brief, bullet-point biographies of key German generals, breakdowns of divisions deployed by theater, and so forth. The overall idea is to acquaint the reader not merely with the accomplishments of the infantry arm but the many challenges it faced, and the martial philosophy by which the leaders led and the troops fought (which can be boiled down to "train hard, fight easy"; or, as Rommel put it, "Sweat saves blood.")
Author Bishop, by no means a fan of Hitler, rightly gives the German soldier praise for his extraordinary discipline and toughness; actually he gives the Nazi system less credit than it deserves for motivating the ordinary German soldier to fight (even diehard antiNazis like Gotthard Heinrici admitted after the war that "like it or not, the resilience of the German soldier was largely due to his faith in Hitler and National Socialism"). This is balanced by praise for Germany's enemies, particularly the Soviets, who despite their dogmatism and clumsy, unimaginative approach to warfare were terrifyingly resilient and knew how to play to their strengths.

The main drawbacks of this book are the fact that Bishop buys heavily into the "official" view of the war, as posited by Guderian, Manstein, Mellenthin, et al, with the result that he gives the German generals too much credit, and Hitler too little, for the success of German arms during the war. Hitler certainly made his share of catastrophic blunders, but he was often let down by the unimaginativeness and moral flabbiness of his military leadership. Likewise, Bishop's statistics are occasionally a bit curious and, in attempting to cover so much ground so quickly (less than 200 pages), he necessarily bites off more than he can chew. But none of these criticisms really adds up to much: they are outweighed by the many useful facts which explain not only how the Germans were organized and deployed, but how they managed to keep the whole world at bay for six long years of war.

Good read and informative 21. Februar 2012
Von Quicksilver - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I personally like this series of books. They are informative, interesting, and they cover a lot of subjects. This one is no different.
This book follows the Heer from 1919 to 1945. As an earlier review said, there is a little too much to cover in 200 pages, but what there is to cover they do a good job. There's been a few things I have wished there had been more on, but again overall it's a good read. I recommend this book and if you like it, I recommend the rest of the series. I hope this has helped.

Great Book for WW2 Buffs 8. Januar 2013
Von Seppo Porhola - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Finally I find a book, that shows the chain of command of German Infantry. Easy to read and understand with great tables.
I think, that in every "real WW2 buff" should have this book and all others in this series.

Infantry review 21. Juli 2009
Von W. A. Samson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is as my review for German panzers in WWII.

It is not realy an order of battle in depth.
It deals with the campaings where German infantry divisions participated.
For that campaing the command structure is given as a beautifull colour map.
There are also beaitfull clour plates showing the standard infantry companies and platoons during the several periods of the war.
So you get insight to the company in the early, intermediate and late periods.
IT is a beautifull book with a good summary of the campaings, but not an in depth review of the german divisions. Something would expect refering to the title.
