Overall, the assortment of pictures in the book is outstanding. The text is fairly well written but is done in an impersonal format no personal stories , i. The lack of any personal recollections by Wehrmacht soldiers is the primary reason the book gets a four-star rating and not a five-star rating.
I enjoyed this book for the stunning and rare photos of the average German soldiers fighting for their lives in WWII. While other books will give you a better idea of the overall war, this book outshines all others I have read for the amount of pictures of Germans and their experiences. You'll see close up photos of the faces of men living and dying, laughing and crying, in victory and defeat. I liked this book, the photographs are excellent and rare and really give a good idea of what the German army looked like.
The reason to buy the book is for the large format photos, not the text. See all 7 reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.

Germany employed women in auxiliaries in World War I as well, but the devastation of World War II transformed the roles of women in military. Much like other belligerent nations during World War II, Germany mobilized its women for the war effort.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yet, Germany was at the beginning of the war more reluctant to do so than other countries like Britain, fearing that it would destroy the morale of both civilians and soldiers. At the end of the war every twentieth soldier in the Wehrmacht was a woman, even though they were not named as such. During World War I, Germany had deployed women as nurses, rear area auxiliaries, and message helpers. However, the extent of the service of women in the Wehrmacht in World War II was much more significant.
Wehrmacht : The Illustrated History of the German Army in WWII by John Pimlott (1997, Hardcover)
The mobilization of women in the Wehrmacht occurred in four different phases. Beginning in the and , the female Wehrmacht auxiliaries were deployed outside of Germany to occupied countries. In this first wave of female auxiliaries, these women were employed in such areas as the telephone and telegraph offices, the air-raid warning service, and the air reporting service. In order to serve in the military, women had to be at least twenty-one years old. Only women who volunteered were accepted, which led to a publicity campaign during the second phase of the deployment of women auxiliaries in As the war progressed, the Nazi Party promoted voluntary female military service to replace men from communications and clerical areas so they could be deployed to the front lines.
The next two phases of the deployment of women saw the female auxiliaries occupying positions with more responsibility and closer to the frontlines. At the end of and into early , the third stage of the deployment began.
