The Axis Forces PDF Number 5 January 2018 contains an broad array of interesting historical articles ranging from the travails of European volunteers (principally Dutch) in and around the Narva bridgehead 1944 to Italian militaria commemorating military service on the Eastern Front. Additional microcosms of historical interest are highlighted by coverage of Albanian participation in the Balkan theatre, Hungarian armoured forces during the 1930's and 1940's, and a battalion of LAH SS serving around Lenginrad as well as as an exert from an new book describing SS s.Pz.Abt. 503's brief sojourne in Berlin in 1945. All articles are liberally illustrated where applicable with maps and black and white photos and contain a bibliography of source material and some limited footnoting. Overall my first impression is that this issue shines a light on some more obscure (for me at least) topics from WWII. My thanks to Massimiliano Afiero for kindly providing a PDF copy for review.
