The last year of the German Army, May 1944-May 1945 by James Lucas( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Germany began the last year of the war in a crisis situation; the allied landings in Normandy had forced another battle arena upon an army already fighting on the vast Eastern Front where Army Group Centre was soon to collapse. The Last Year of the Germany Army charts the 'progress' of Hitler's army from May 1944 until May 1945, when the once all-conquering German Army was finally defeated. James Lucas examines the changing structure of the army throughout this final year of war, and reveals the often surprising measures taken to confront a situation Hitler had never contemplated, and which indeed he never really accepted. This book completes a trilogy -- covering the German Army, Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine -- that provides an unprecedented analysis of this traumatic period of the war"--Jacket

Hitler's mountain troops by James Lucas( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Warfare in the mountains was unique- fighting in a vertical wilderness in which the objective of a nearby mountain peak meant a gruelling descent into the valley and an exausting ascent to the summit, often under fire and in grim weather conditions. Hence the Gebirgsjaeger were tough and hardy men, often from the alpine regions of Germany- true 'mountain men' at home in the harsh conditions, an advantage that frequently won victories or facilitated escape where any other unit would have failed. These specially trained troops, skilled in mountaineering, skiing and endurance marching, are the subject of this authoritative study from the pen of an admiring writer who fought them in Italy". -- Publisher's description
