"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
The story of a soldier who was awarded his country's highest military decorations, including the German Cross in gold and the Knight's Cross. Commander of Germany's 21st Panzer division during World War II and a protege of Field Marshall Rommel, Colonel Hans von Luck served in an army that is widely regarded as one of the most powerful in history. His memoirs provide a firsthand account of German tactics in combat. Von Luck was present at several historical junctures of the war - the invasion of Poland in 1939, the battle for France with Rommel in 1940, the march on Moscow in 1941 and the fighting at Kasserine Pass in North Africa with Rommel in 1942. After being wounded in North Africa, von Luck was eventually posted to Paris in 1943 to school junior officers in tactics. Returning to action, he participated in the struggle to repel the invasion of Normandy on D-Day, and battled French and American forces in 1944. Finally, he was part of the ill-fated defence of Berlin in 1945. Von Luck anticipated that the Axis powers were likely to be defeated after the failed invasion of Russia. By recounting his tale of the war with sensitivity and humanity, he validates the longstanding tradition of an officer and a gentleman.Biografía del autor:
