Re: Feldgrau Author: Doug Nash

Dai, Thanks for asking and glad you enjoyed the book. There is no indication in the pile of documents in my possession that they wore any type of special insignia. I asked that question of the veterans in my interviews and they all shook their heads "no." But - if you want to know one way that they ...

Re: Feldgrau Author: Doug Nash

Rand,
You're welcome! Hope you enjoy it - I hope I was able to present a picture of what that phase of the war was like for the average German soldier.
Regards,
Doug Nash

Re: Blood, Steel, Myth/George Nipe

In regards to RZM's forthcoming book on Arnheim (Kampfraum Arnheim), I can say that it's undergoing final proofreading and editing - will be worth the wait, having seen the draft manuscript with the photos. It will be up to the usual high RZM standards. Patience!

Is this Alois Jarolim?

This photo of an SS-PK member was taken in Kovel during an award ceremony conducted by the 5. SS-Pz.Div. "Wiking" on or about 10 April 1944. Am wondering if anyone can identify him - I think it might be SS-PK Fotograf Alois Jarolim, but cannot be sure.

Re: Explosive New Book about Kursk Coming out in May

It was delayed until August due to the incorporation of a number of new photographs, which necessitated some modifications to the layout of the manuscript. Nothing major, just time consuming for RZM and their graphics specialist. Again, August is the projected new release date.
Cheers,

Re: “Panzer Grenadier der 5.SS-Panzerdivision ‘Wiking’ im Bild”

That would be Ernst Baumann. He was not an SS Mann, but as I mentioned was forcibly transferred to the Wiking when he ran afoul of Gretl Braun's amorous advances in 1942, not 1944. Seems she was a bit of a floozy, hitting on guys left and right, finally settling for that sleazeball Fegelein. At any ...

Re: “Panzer Grenadier der 5.SS-Panzerdivision ‘Wiking’ im Bild”

Speaking of the Wiking, RZM (Remy Spezzano & yours truly) is FINALLY working on the book about the relief of Kowel & the follow-on Operation Ilse. We'll start the layout within the next month. It will be primarily a photo book, though w/heavy text accompaniement, a bit like Platz der Leibstandarte, ...

Re: “Panzer Grenadier der 5.SS-Panzerdivision ‘Wiking’ im Bild”

Well, Verweht sind die Spuren was about the Panzer Regiment, while Panzergrenadierdivision Wiking in Bild was about the whole division. The second book had far more text, while the first one was more focused on the tanks, obviously. Both are good though - also, Klapdor's book about the tank regiment...

Re: Hells Gate

No, it didn't - you have to buy that separately. It should have been included, I agree. I can send you the electrons though if you want them.

Re: Hells Gate

Well, obviously I scribble only in my own books - to scribble in someone else's would be gauche, not to say impolite! But whoever gets my book collection after I kick the proverbial bucket will have to put up with all my random scribbling and margin notes! :D

Re: Hells Gate

Will have to leave the decision for an errata sheet up to my publisher, those are a pain in the backside too, I imagine. But I agree about Ebooks too - I'm no big fan, would much rather sit down with a musty old tome than an IPad or Kindle - but let's face it, we may be the last generation that has ...

Re: Hells Gate

Just some minor edits - it's not being marketed as a 2nd edition, just a reprint. When we catch enough errors to justify changing the original proof, then we make the changes. It's not economical to do that whenever an error is found, just too expensive because you have to pay someone to do the word...

Re: Hells Gate

I'm sure he would, but he just sent it in to the printers for the 4th reprint - perhaps the next one. I think if you can find Salie's photo of the crossing of the Gniloy Tickich, that would be most interesting. All the copies I have seen have been very bad and if you have a clear one, that would be ...
