Overview

• Vivid recollections of Hitler's foot soldiers who were involved in some of the worst infantry combat in history

The panzergrenadiers were the foot soldiers who went into battle alongside the Third Reich's feared tanks.

Whether in the Wehrmacht or Waffen-SS, these troops endured all the horrors of infantry combat--fighting hand-to-hand, storming enemy positions, and rescuing fallen comrades--but they did so in the shadow of thundering giants like the Tiger and Panther.

Kurowski tells the stories of some of the very best of these mechanised infantrymen, bringing them and their actions to life.
