Poland 1939 : the birth of Blitzkrieg by Steve Zaloga ( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The German invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 began World War II in Europe, pitting the newly modernized army of Europe's great industrial power against the much smaller Polish army and introducing the world to a new style of warfare-blitzkrieg. Panzer divisions spearheaded the German assault with Stuka dive-bombers prowling ahead spreading terror and mayhem. This book demonstrates how the Polish army was not as backward as it is often portrayed and fielded a tank force larger than that of the contemporary US Army. Its stubborn defense gave the Germans some surprises and German casualties were relatively heavy for such a short campaign."--BOOK JACKET

Operation Cobra 1944 : breakout from Normandy by Steve Zaloga ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most decisive periods of World War II was the 30 days between 25 July and 25 August 1944. After the success of the D-Day landings, the Allied forces found themselves bogged down in a bloody stalemate in Normandy. On 25 July, General Bradley launched Operation Cobra to break the deadlock. US forces punched a hole in the German frontline and began a spectacular advance. As Patton's Third Army poured into Brittany and raced south to the Loire, the German army was threatened with encirclement. By the end of August, German forces in Normandy were utterly destroyed and the remaining German units in central and southern France were in headlong retreat to the German frontier. In this book Steven J. Zaloga explains how the breakout from Normandy came about."--BOOK JACKET
Bagration 1944 : the destruction of Army Group Center by Steve Zaloga ( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On 22 June 1944, three years to the day after Germany's 1941 invasion of the Soviet Union, the Red Army launched a massive offensive in Byelorussia. Codenamed 'Operation Bagration', this campaign climaxed five weeks later with the Red Army at the gates of Warsaw. The Wehrmacht's Army Group Center was routed, a total of 17 Wehrmacht divisions were utterly destroyed, and over 50 other German divisions were shattered. It was the single most calamitous defeat of the German armed forces in World War II."--BOOK JACKET

D-Day 1944 : Omaha Beach by Steve Zaloga ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 were the largest amphibious military operation ever mounted. The greatest armada the world had ever seen was assembled to transport the Allied invasion force across the Channel and open the long-awaited second front against Hitler's Third Reich. Of the landings on the five assault beaches, Omaha Beach was the only one ever in doubt. Within moments of the first wave landing a third of the assault troops were casualties. Yet by the end of D-Day the Atlantic Wall had been breached and the US Army's V. Corps was firmly entrenched on French soil."--BOOK JACKET
Lorraine 1944 : Patton versus Manteuffel by Steve Zaloga ( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the wake of the defeat in Normandy in the summer of 1944, Hitler planned to blunt the Allied advance by cutting off Patton's Third Army in the Lorraine with a great Panzer offensive. However, Patton's aggressive tactics continued to thwart German plans and led to a series of violent armored battles and the breakout of the American forces. As the battle-hardened Wehrmacht confronted the well-equipped and trained US Army, the Germans managed to re-establish a fragile defensive line but could not stop the US Army from establishing bridgeheads over the Moselle along Germany's western frontier."--BOOK JACKET

The Polish army, 1939-45 by Steve Zaloga ( Book )
11 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Poland was the first of the Allied nations to succumb to German aggression in the Second World War, but by the most tortuous of routes her army managed to remain in the field through all five years of bloody fighting. Polish soldiers fought in nearly every major campaign in the European theatre, and their tale is a complicated and tragic one. This richly detailed text by Steven Zaloga relates the story of the Polish Army during the Second World War, from the first wave of Stukas in 1939 to its eventual conclusion
The Siegfried line, 1944-45 : battles on the German frontier by Steve Zaloga ( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The campaign on the German frontier in late 1944 was one of the most frustrating and costly efforts by the US Army in the ETO. The Allies first encountered the Siegfried Line (Westwall) fortifications in September 1944, having pursued the retreating Wehrmacht through Belgium and the Netherlands. The border area around Aachen had been fortified with a double line of bunkers, and both the terrain and the weather made things difficult for the Allies. This book focuses on the involvement of the US First and Ninth armies in the six-month fighting, including the hellish fighting for the Hrtgen fore
