dvd 1st Leibstandarte: Adolf Hitler Ss Panzer Division

1st Leibstandarte: Adolf Hitler Ss Panzer Division- the Germans in Normandy.

Publisher:Pen & Sword Books Ltd     Barcode:  5060247620176
Region: Region 2 (UK & Europe)       BBFC Certification:  (Ex) Exempt.
Pub. Date: 19 July 2013                   Price:£19.99  (€27.99)

The Leibstandarte had proved itself to be highly effective in battle and had fought in virtually all the German campaigns since 1939. This documentary covers  the second half of June 44 when the Division began its nightmare march to Normandy and elements of this elite  division were thrown into piecemeal battles to prop up the crumbling German Army. Perhaps the  greatest achievement of the 1st Leibstandarte was halting the Great British armoured advance, Operation Goodwood.

This film, written and presented by established historians and battlefield tour guides, will strip away layers of myth and take the viewers to the places where the SS fought the British, Americans and Canadians in one of the most costly battles of the Second World War.
