  • PANZERJÄGER Weapons and Organization of Wehrmacht’s Anti-tank Units (1935-1945)

    26,95
    ENGLISH

    English / Spanish. 114 pages. Hard cover.

     

    During World War II, the German Army widely used self-propelled anti-tank guns.

    There were two categories of these vehicles: the so-called Panzerjäger (tank hunter) which had an open casemate so the crew was fully exposed from above and was provided with thin front
    and side armor protection, and the Jagdpanzer (tank destroyer) with a closed casemate so the crew-members could travel and fight safely.

    This book, which includes several colour profiles and period photographs, is focused on the equipment of the German anti-tank units.

    Aunque para referirse a las piezas contracarro autopropulsadas que empleó el ejército alemán durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial se suele emplear el término “cazacarro”, estas armas se clasificaban en dos categorías, una de las cuales era la que correspondía a los vehículos que se denominaban con dicho término en alemán, “Panzerjäger”, y la otra la de los que se conocían por el nombre de “Jagdpanzer” (carro cazador).

    En esta obra, ilustrada con numerosos perfiles y fotografías, se analizan las diferencias existentes entre ambas categorías.

    The Great Patriotic War was a terrible military conflict which lasted for about four years.

    By the autumn of 1941 the Red Army was about to be defeated at the gates of Moscow although it could get over the situation.

    Until the spring of 1942 the armament factories had been relocated far away from the battlefront, allowing for unstoppable increase of the production and formation of new military units.

    Both the combat tactics and the staff training improved and, at the same time, the design of armoured fighting vehicles evolved outstandingly.

    As a result and thanks to the massive use of the armoured forces in all battlefields, in May 1945 the Soviet Union rode to a crushing victory against the Germans.

    This book provides a general view on the military operations from the invasion of the USSR to the defeat of the Third Reich and focuses on the evolution of the Soviet armoured units.

    The authors discuss the organization and equipment of these units, different models of armoured fighting vehicles and the evolution of their design.

    La Gran Guerra Patria fue un terrible conflicto militar que duró unos cuatro años.

    Para el otoño de 1941, el Ejército Rojo estaba a punto de ser derrotado a las puertas de Moscú, aunque pudo superar la situación.

    Hasta la primavera de 1942, las fábricas de armamento se habían trasladado lejos del frente de batalla, lo que permitió un aumento imparable de la producción y formación de nuevas unidades militares.

    Tanto las tácticas de combate como el entrenamiento del personal mejoraron y, al mismo tiempo, el diseño de los vehículos blindados de combate evolucionó de manera sobresaliente.

    Como resultado y gracias al uso masivo de las fuerzas blindadas en todos los campos de batalla, en mayo de 1945 la Unión Soviética logró una aplastante victoria contra los alemanes.

    Este libro ofrece una visión general de las operaciones militares desde la invasión de la URSS hasta la derrota del Tercer Reich y se centra en la evolución de las unidades blindadas soviéticas.

    Los autores discuten la organización y equipamiento de estas unidades, diferentes modelos de vehículos blindados de combate y la evolución de su diseño.

    This book is the second volume devoted to the Iraqi Army’s war material captured in 1991 during the Persian Gulf War.

    In February 1991, the Iraqi army suffered heavy losses during the air campaign and the ground offensive launched by the coalition, but a large proportion of military hardware was simply abandoned intact in the Kuwaiti desert and captured by Allied troops.

    The huge booty included tanks, personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, reconnaissance vehicles, self-propelled guns, self-propelled antiaircraft systems….

    Before being shipped to the United States or the United Kingdom, they were gathered in the Kuwaiti Theater of Operations (KTO), or into giant junkyards located in Saudi Arabia.

    Spoils of War is written for the military enthusiast, modelers and historians and is the careful examination of many sources. It presents us with an overview of the huge variety of military equipment fielded by the Iraqi army.

    Photos were donated by veterans and other private collectors.

    The author was able to talk with many veterans, and interviews with those who took these photos added precious details.

    Both for historians fans and for the models that want new ideas and references for their models.

    En febrero de 1991, el ejército iraquí sufrió grandes pérdidas durante la campaña aérea y la ofensiva terrestre lanzada por la coalición, pero una gran proporción del material militar fue simplemente abandonado intacto en el desierto de Kuwait y capturado por las tropas aliadas.

    El enorme botín incluía tanques, vehículos de transporte de personal, vehículos de combate de infantería, vehículos de reconocimiento, cañones autopropulsados, sistemas antiaéreos autopropulsados …

    Antes de ser enviados a los Estados Unidos o el Reino Unido, se reunieron en el Teatro de Operaciones de Kuwait ( KTO), o en depósitos de chatarra gigantes ubicados en Arabia Saudita.

    Sold out

    LUGA JG 4/I

    49,90

    The fourth fighter wing of the Luftwaffe was initially established during 1942 and committed to operations in defence of the Rumanian oil fields during 1943. I./JG 4 first saw action in combat against a strike force of B-24 Liberators dispatched on the celebrated low level attack against Ploesti on 1 August 1943, Operation “Tidal Wave”. JG 4 was subsequently deployed in the bitterly fought German defensive campaign on the Italian peninsula during the first half of 1944, prior to being shifted to the Normandy invasion front and then falling back to the frontiers of the Reich in September that year. It was during the summer of 1944 that JG 4 underwent considerable reinforcement with two new Gruppen swelling its ranks. The most effective of these was II. (Sturm)/JG 4, a so-called “Storm” or « assault » wing, built up around a hard core of former Sturmstaffel 1 pilots and an intake of young daredevil volunteers. Committed against the massive USAF bomber fleets pounding the Reich, these German « kamikaze » fighters, as some saw them, were deployed to bring down the American bombers by any means, including ramming if necessary. The first volume of this two part history covers the unit’s establishment, deployments and combat actions through to Autumn 1944, providing for the first time in English a day-by-day, mission-by-mission study of the Luftwaffe’s 4th fighter wing.

     

    The second volume covers the story of the Geschwader from Operation Market Garden in Holland during September 1944 to the final desperate battles over Berlin and capitulation in May 1945. The combats flown by the pilots of JG 4 throughout this nine month period are related with the aid of rare oral testimony and illustrated with photographs from private albums, including a selection of new images for this English-language edition. Covered in detail are the ‘Storm’ missions flown by the Sturmgruppe (including ramming attacks against USAAF bombers), ground-attack bombing sorties during the Ardennes offensive of December 1944, the fullest account yet of the unit’s participation in the 1945 New Year’s Day Operation Bodenplatte, the last desperate sorties flown on the Oder front against the Red Army with, for the first time, accounts in English of German kamikaze attacks flown against the Oder bridges and the final air battles over the ruins of Berlin.

     

    Over the course of 20 years research the author was able to track down and interview virtually every surviving pilot and compile their very often moving and desperate accounts into this book, giving it a uniquely human dimension which will undoubtedly be of interest to all former Allied aviators and their descendants as well as enthusiasts of the period.

     

    Neil Page has produced the translation and his knowledge of both the French and German languages as well as WWII aviation history has enabled us to present this superb English language edition. The work is illustrated with several hundred photographs and is completed with loss and victory listings, a table of commanding officers and Thierry Dekker’s superb full-colour profile artworks. This is an unmissable 232-page A-4 format hardback, with much new information on WWII air combat over Europe, the pilots and their machines.

  • In the Skies of France. A Chronicle of JG 2

    LUGA JG 2/I

    49,90

    It has taken more than 60 years for this first detailed history of the second fighter wing of the Luftwaffe to appear, a chronicle of Jagdgeschwader 2. Conducting operations principally over France and the Channel, JG 2 was destined to become one of the most celebrated of German fighter units, accorded extensive coverage by the propaganda services of the Reich. Awarded the honour title « Richthofen » as early as 1935, JG 2 spearheaded the campaign in the West and the assault againt England in the Battle of Britain. The unit remained in France when the majority of German fighter units were dispatched eastwards for the invasion of Russia during the spring of 1941. Tasked with defending the airspace of Brittany, Normandy and much of Picardy along the French Channel coastline, JG 2 constituted a bulwark against the incursions of the RAF and USAF. Despite the unit’s heavy losses sustained during WW II, the authors managed to locate around one hundred JG 2 veterans and their personal accounts and photographs bring this history vividly to life and imbue it with a human dimension which many will find moving. This first volume of the history of JG 2 covers the early years of the unit from its origins to the turn of the year 1940/1941.
    Compiling a history of this scope would have been an impossible task were it not for the support of many tens of veterans and their families, amateur historians, enthusiasts and friends. We owe a special debt of gratitude to five former members of JG “Richthofen” who were particularly supportive during the long process of assembling this work and whose encouragement and readiness to assist was unswerving: Julius Meimberg and Erich Rudorffer for kindly agreeing to write their respective forewords, Hennig Strümpell, Wolfgang Falck and Dr Siegfried Bethke. It was with great sadness that we learnt of the deaths of the latter three gentlemen before this work could appear.

     

    A number of French researchers have supported this project with their time, energy and considerable knowledge and experience. We would particularly like to thank Richard Goyat and his co-author Jean-Yves Lorant, as well as Frédéric Quesnel.

    From Bessarabia to Belgrade: An Illustrated Study of the Soviet Conquest of Southeast Europe, March-October 1944

    The Red Army reached northeastern Rumania in the last days of March 1944. Stalin had high hopes that the 2nd and 3rd Ukrainian Fronts would be able to quickly conquer the Balkans. But those hopes were not to be fulfilled. Bulgarian researcher Kamen Nevenkin’s From Bessarabia to Belgrade covers the military history of the bloody fights in southeastern Europe from March to October 1944. This is a short study, illustrated with numerous never-before-published wartime photographs.

    Bloody Vienna: The Soviet Offensive Operations in Western Hungary and Austria, March-May 1945 book.

    The Soviet Vienna Operation began on 16 March 1945 when the assault armies of 2nd and 3rd Ukrainian Fronts succeeded in penetrating the Axis defence between Esztergom and Lake Balaton. It ended less than a month later, on 13 April 1945, when all its objectives were achieved, and Vienna was taken.

    The defeat at Vienna inflicted a mortal blow on the Nazi economy – the Third Reich lost its important economic regions in Hungary and Eastern Austria that were still largely untouched by the war.

    Finally, the victory at Vienna allowed Stalin to solidify his presence in Central and Eastern Europe and legitimize his absolute dominance over the region. The Western Allies and the small democratic countries of Western Europe were forced to realize that the Red Army wouldn’t fall back and return to its homeland, but would stay and erect an iron curtain behind which communist regimes would be installed. Thus, the Soviet Empire expanded to the west, and Europe was divided for the next 45 years.

    Penned by a leading Bulgarian researcher, the book provides an expert analysis of this battle. A considerable number of German and Soviet wartime documents were accessed, and this allowed the author to tell the story from the perspective of both sides. It also contains many never-before-published photographs.

    ENGLISH

    In the last phase of the Second World War the Sixth Panzer Army was the last army available to the German military leadership which was more or less intact and was capable of launching a major offensive. After it had been withdrawn from the Western front in the aftermath of the failed Ardennes counter offensive, it was replenished with men and gears as fully as was possible in the given circumstances, and as a result it almost regained its 1944 autumn strength. It would not have been a surprise if it had been deployed on German territory against the Allied troops advancing to Rhine, or in Silesia or in the Baltics or even if it had been sent as a reinforcement to the Army Group Vistula to defend the distant approaches to Berlin against the advancing Soviet army – reinforcement and fresh troops capable of launching counter offensives were desperately needed everywhere. But it happened otherwise: the Sixth Army was deployed in Hungary and participated in the Operation Spring Awakening, launched in the western part of the country on 6th of March, 1945. This was the last German “big offensive” in the course of the Second World War.

    En la última fase de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el Sexto Ejército Panzer fue el último ejército disponible para el liderazgo militar alemán que estaba más o menos intacto y era capaz de lanzar una gran ofensiva. Después de haber sido retirado del frente occidental tras la fallida contraofensiva de las Ardenas, se reponía con hombres y engranajes lo más completamente posible en las circunstancias dadas, y como resultado casi recuperó su fuerza de otoño de 1944. No habría sido una sorpresa si se hubiera desplegado en territorio alemán contra las tropas aliadas que avanzaban hacia el Rin, o en Silesia o en el Báltico, o incluso si se hubiera enviado como refuerzo al Grupo de Ejércitos para defender los frentes distantes de Berlín contra el avance del ejército soviético: se necesitaban desesperadamente refuerzos y nuevas tropas capaces de lanzar contraofensivas en todas partes. Pero sucedió lo contrario: el Sexto Ejército se desplegó en Hungría y participó en la Operación Spring Awakening, lanzada en la parte occidental del país el 6 de marzo de 1945. Esta fue la última “gran ofensiva” alemana en el transcurso de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

    Red Machines 2: SU-100 Self-Propelled Gun book

    The Red Machines Series is devoted to the hardware of the Red Army. Each book offers in-depth information, much of it new to the west, as well as a large number of photos, of which most are unpublished. Each book includes blueprints, drawings, colour profiles and data tables, to describe the development and production variants of each vehicle.

    The SU-100 was the Red Army’s most powerful medium tank destroyer of World War 2 and was developed for anti-tank fire support to the T-34-85 in the same way as the SU-85 had complemented the original T-34. As with the SU-85 before it, the SU-100 was delayed in entering service.

    Although introduced late in the war, the SU-100 was heavily engaged in the final push into the Axis countries, with major combat engagements in Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and in the assault on Berlin. The SU-100 proved a particularly potent “Zveroboi” or “animal hunter” in that it could easily dispatch Tiger, King Tiger and Panther tanks at medium range. The vehicle had no secondary armament, however, and proved vulnerable when engaged in close fighting without infantry support as occurred during some of these late war battles.

    Post-war, the SU-100 remained in Soviet Army service for many years, being subject to several capital repair upgrades over the decades. The SU-100 was also exported in large numbers, particularly to the Middle East, and was produced under licence in Czechoslovakia as the SD-100.

    About the Authors

    James Kinnear was born in the UK in 1959. James has researched Russian military hardware following his first visit to the Soviet Union in 1973. Since then he has written hundreds of articles on Soviet and Russian military technology. A Russian speaker, he has studied the subject from within the military-intelligence community and as a civilian author.

    Nikolai Polikarpov is the chief editor of “M-Hobby”, the first and only Russian monthly magazine for military modellers, which has been in publication since 1993. The founding of the magazine was a natural extension of his hobby of building scale models. The desire to build models which were an exact replica of the original full-scale prototypes naturally led to the study of the development and operational history of military vehicles during World War Two, including archive research and the measurement of preserved museums examples. This led to the publication of numerous reference articles in “M-Hobby”, and also a series of Russian books and monographs regarding the history of Soviet combat and transport vehicles. The publishing of books and articles led to membership of the Union of Journalists of Russia and ongoing work in popularizing military history in various publications.

    During the Great War, the assault tanks in the German Army merely played an anecdotal role. Due to the restrictions enforced by the Treaty of Versailles, the first training unit for armoured forces wasn’t organised (secretly) until 1933. The existence of the first three Panzerdivisionen of that new German Army was officially revealed in 1935. The armoured troops or Panzertruppen were an independent branch of the Army, with their own command. This allowed concentrating the tanks in divisions so units were capable of significantly strategic deployments. General Heinz Guderian forged both words: Panzerwaffe to refer to the armoured force and
    Panzertruppen to identify the elitist armoured troops which would conquer half of Europe in the following years.
    The evolution of the camouflage schemes painted in tanks and vehicles of German armoured units is analysed in the book along with the organisation of these German units during WWI and WWII and the whole interwar period.

    Durante la Gran Guerra, los tanques de asalto en el ejército alemán simplemente jugaron un papel anecdótico. Debido a las restricciones impuestas por el Tratado de Versalles, la primera unidad de entrenamiento para las fuerzas blindadas no se organizó (lo hizo en secreto) hasta 1933. La existencia de las primeras tres Panzerdivisionen de ese nuevo ejército alemán se reveló oficialmente en 1935. Las tropas blindadas o Panzertruppen eran una rama independiente del ejército, con su propio mando. Esto permitió concentrar los tanques en divisiones para que las unidades fueran capaces de despliegues significativamente estratégicos. El general Heinz Guderian acuñó ambas palabras: Panzerwaffe para referirse a la fuerza blindada y Panzertruppen para identificar las tropas blindadas elitistas que conquistarían la mitad de Europa en
    los años siguientes.
    La evolución de los esquemas de camuflaje pintados en tanques y vehículos de unidades blindadas alemanas se analiza en este libro. Junto con la organización de éstas unidades alemanas durante
    la Primera y la Segunda Guerra Mundial y todo el período de entreguerras.

    In the Six Day War, some 860 enemy tanks were captured by the IDF, including some 280 T-54/5 tanks. Within a few years, 146 of them were introduced into service as Tiran 4/5. This book tells their story, a story of the only army that introduced a great number of enemy tanks into prolonged service. The Tiran tank did not really suit the IDF’s needs. It was in many ways a bastard tank. However, the IDF creatively tried to take advantage of all that it had to offer. It was used like no other tank—as a low-grade “bonus” reserve tank unit for wartime, as a mine-clearing tank, as a unique tool for special operations, and as an artillery cannon designated for destroying SA-3 anti-air missile batteries. After many alterations, the tanks were eventually incorporated in a Tiran 4/5 brigade, as part of a special tactical task force designed to conduct an armored maneuver in the Egyptian flank.Abteilung 502 and Desert Eagle Publishing bring us the second volume of the Captured Vehicles in IDF Service Series. A new series for those who build models, love tanks and like history. The series focuses on the widespread and unique use the IDF made of tanks and armored vehicles captured in Israel’s wars with its Arab neighbors. The series is based on academic research, official IDF documentation, and interviews conducted with soldiers and officers who used these vehicles in real time. An amazing book that will surprise you.

    En la Guerra de los Seis Días, el IDF capturó unos 860 tanques enemigos, incluidos unos 280 tanques T-54/5. En pocos años, 146 de ellos se pusieron en servicio como Tiran 4/5. Este libro cuenta su historia, una historia del único ejército que introdujo una gran cantidad de tanques enemigos en servicio prolongado. El tanque Tiran no se ajustaba realmente a las necesidades del IDF, era en muchos sentidos un tanque bastardo, sin embargo, el IDF intentó aprovechar creativamente todo lo que tenía para ofrecer. Se usó como ningún otro tanque: como una unidad de tanque de reserva para tiempos de guerra, como un tanque de limpieza de minas, como una herramienta única para operaciones especiales y como un cañón de artillería designado para destruir anti baterías de misiles aéreos SA-3. Después de muchas alteraciones, los tanques finalmente se incorporaron en una brigada Tiran 4/5, como parte de una fuerza especial táctica diseñada para llevar a cabo una maniobra blindada en el flanco egipcio. Abteilung 502 y Desert Eagle Publishing nos traen en el segundo volumen los vehículos capturados al servicio del IDF. Una nueva serie para quienes construyen maquetas, les gustan los tanques y les apasiona la historia. La serie se centra en el uso generalizado y único que el IDF hizo de tanques y vehículos blindados capturados en las guerras de Israel con sus vecinos árabes. Basado en investigaciones académicas, documentación oficial del IDF y entrevistas realizadas con soldados y oficiales que utilizaron estos vehículos en tiempo real. Un libro sorprendente que no te defraudará.

    LUGA JG 5

    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    This new volume is devoted to JG 5 ‘Fighters of the Midnight Sun’. Nothing predestined young German fighter pilots to fly and fight among the grandiose landscapes of Norway, Finland or Lapland with their hostile climates. Many of them would find their last resting places in the storm-tossed icy waters of the Arctic Sea or the snow-covered plains of the tundra. Who even now knows that the defeat of the Wehrmacht was precipitated by the failure to conquer Europe’s northern-most small territory?

     

    This latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ tells the story of this fighter Geschwader and its numerous aces on 96 pages, filled with rare and newly translated first person accounts, over 240 photos (many previously unpublished) and 32 specially commissioned artworks that had been created by Janusz Światłoń.

    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    JG 54 was perhaps the most fascinating fighter Geschwader of the Luftwaffe, not least for modellers. This is in large measure due to the variety of non-standard colour schemes worn by the unit’s Bf 109 and Fw 190 fighters as well as the diversity of its emblems and insignia displayed both early and late in the war.

     

    On 96 pages of this latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ we highlight the story of this fighter Geschwader through rare and newly translated first person accounts, 207 photos of which many are published for the first time, and 32 specially commissioned profiles that had been created by Thierry Dekker.

     

  • SPECIAL Luftwaffe Gallery 2 – JG 77 ‘Fighting on Every Front’

    LUGA JG 77

    Author: Erik Mombeeck

    Several factors characterise the history of JG 77: the diversity of its origins, the fact that the Geschwader fought on all fronts, flying the Messerschmitt Bf 109 throughout (except for a very brief interlude on Macchi 205), the striking number and quality of its insignia and the fact that it had in its ranks a large number of the leading fighter aces.

     

    Through newly translated personal accounts, over 230 photos and 31 colour profiles, we tell the story of this unit on 96 pages of this ‘special issue’ of Luftwaffe Gallery.
