Kevin Fish announces the publication of his new book and is requesting comments from Feldgrau members who have read his book.
Full Title: Panzer Regiment 8 in World War II: Poland. France. North Africa
Published by: Schiffer Pub, Release date; scheduled Sept 2008, actual Nov 2008.
Author: Kevin Fish
Book is primarily text, 300 pages, large format and covers the History of the Panzer Regiment from 1936-1943.
The book provides a lot of first hand accounts from all three campaigns. There are over 170 photos and 20 maps (Thanks to Tom Houlihan)
The book is not designed to be a lot of fluff, simply a book to tell the story of this proud regiment. I have hoped to give a good impression of the battles fought and back them up with combat reports and first hand accounts. I think I did a pretty good job with the book, especially for a 1st timer. I think I have included a lot of good stuff, especially Africa. I tried to tell the story from the point of view of the regiment, a tactical view, and its participation in the battles they fought in and not to give a strategic view of these campaigns.
Of course time, and the reader will let me know if I have done a good job, I hope I have done the veterans proud.
