Used, good condition, hard cover with dust jacket.
General von Mellenthin was in a unique position to write this comprehensive account of the various battles fought by the Panzers, as he was present at all the campaigns in which they were involved. In 1939, with the Third Corps, he was active in the Polish Campaign. Then the Conquest of France, the Balkan Campaign, the Western Desert with Rommel, and the Russian Campaign including Stalingrad and Kursk. After the Allies had successfully invaded France, in 1944, he was moved to the Western Front under Field marshal von Rundstedt. It was here, in 1945, that he was taken prisoner by the advancing American troops.
The dust jacket has some creasing to the edges and some bumping to the corners. The hard cover has slight bumping to the bottom of the spine and to the corners. There is a dirty mark on the top edge of the pages, right next to the spine but internally the pages are all clean and unmarked.
