In addition to the series “U-Boot im Focus” and “Luftwaffe im Focus”, we have been publishing books on the theme of the Second World War since 2009.
The focus of our books is on titles covering topics that have received little or no attention in the past. The utmost value is placed on careful research and a fair and objective presentation without political bias. As with all of our other publications, most of the photographs in the books have never before been published and usually include a number of never-before-seen colour photos. The latter are a trademark of our publishing company.
We place a high value on the high-quality printing of the photographs as well as the overall quality of the books. All of our books are completely bilingual, German and English.
Endkampf um das Reichsgebiet 1944-1945
The 186 illustrations, thereof 23 in color, are all operational photos from the German side and not Allied postwar photos. Most were taken by German soldiers during the final battles and thus represent unique photographic documents, for by then film was difficult to obtain and photography rare. The black-and-white photos are supplemented by three rare color photos, also taken during the fighting. The photographs, accompanied by extensive and detailed text and maps, are reproduced to the highest possible standard on good quality glossy paper.
