HORST WESSEL: THE COMBAT HISTORY OF
                                                   THE 18.SS-PANZER-GRENADIER-DIVISION

by Wilhelm Tieke


The combat histories of two units; 1.SS-Infanterie Brigade (mot) and 18.SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Division Horst Wessel. 1.SS-Infanterie Brigade (mot) was employed at the central and southern parts of the Eastern Front from the beginning of the war against the Soviet Union in June 1941 until early 1944, when it was transfered to Stablach, East Prussia for refitting. The brigade’s remnants became the nucleus of the new 18.SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Division Horst Wessel and they were transferred to Croatia in the spring of 1944. Filling its ranks proved difficult and it never reached its authorized strength. The intent to form it from Hungarian Volksdeutsche failed because not enough volunteers stepped forward. It surrendered in Southeast Germany in May 1945.

THE CRIMEAN CAMPAIGNS 1941 - 1944

by Wilhelm Tieke





Describes the WWII battles for the Crimea on two levels: tactical and strategic. Excellent accounts of small actions are nicely woven into the overall description of the intense fighting for the Black Sea peninsula. All important phases of that unique battle front are covered, including the penetration through the Isthmus of Perekop in 1941, the combat on the Tschatyrlyk, and the pursuit to Sevastopol, where the Germans were halted by the city’s powerful defenses. Following the drive to Kerch and some setbacks, after a 4 week brutal siege Sevastopol was captured on 1 July 1942. The uneasy German occupation lasted until 1944 when the Soviet army recaptured Crimea in early May 1944. Feldmarshall Erich von Manstein led the German forces during the battles, provideing brilliant leadership, but he was hampered by a lack of sufficient forces and equipment.
