Arnhem A Few Vital Hours By Scott Revell, Bob Gerritsen And Niall Cherry Arnhem A Few Vital Hours concentrates on a German unit which played a major role in fighting the 1st British Airborne Division in September 1944. This unit was the SS-Panzergrenadier-Ausbildungs und Ersatz-Bataillon 16 or to give it an English 'name' the SS-Panzer Grenadier Training and Replacement Battalion 16. This unit was, as its name suggests, a training unit and mainly consisted of 17 and 18 year olds recruits led by veterans who had all seen active service and were getting them ready for the front line. It was commanded by SS-Sturmbannführer Krafft and consisted of around 300 officers and men. It had been located in the Arnhem area. By September 1944 the unit had been warned that it would be acting as an anti-airborne landings unit, should the expected assault come. On the 17th September 1944 the unit was quickly mobilised and for a 'Few Vital Hours' during the afternoon, it stopped the 1st Airborne Division in its tracks on their way towards Arnhem. This book covers these few vital hours in detail using veterans' accounts, a diary Krafft wrote for Himmler in late 1944 and official reports. Later on in the fighting Krafft was given command of a 'Kampfgruppe' and their actions in and around the Oosterbeek perimeter are also included as well as the history of SS training in the Arnhem area; an analysis of the Krafft diary; casualties sustained by the unit and a summary of the war service of SS-Sturmbannführer Krafft. This is another excellent book from Sigmond Publishing. This edition compromises the 2nd edition.

When the German defenders would not budge, the 504th Regiment was ordered to cross the Waal River in small boats, an action called by many one of the most heroic actions of WW2. De Trez and Hendrikx untangle the decision-making process of the Waal crossing and provide a detailed description, illustrated with many artifacts. After the 82nd Division accomplished all its missions, the last regiment is inserted in the fight. The 325th Glider Regiment was delayed for many days due to bad weather and dangerous planning. However, in the defensive battles that followed, the 325th Regiment played an important role. “Bridges Are Ours” continues with the defensive battles of the 504th, 505th and 508th Regiments and its supporting artillery battalions. The activities of the glider pilots, members of the Air Force who were called upon to perform as infantry, are also covered. Many newly discovered photos tell a story of danger and misery. Units of the Division Headquarters, such as the Military Police, the Signalmen and the Medical Battalion are also well documented in “Bridges Are Ours”.

Extremely Rare German Propaganda Pamphlet Battle of the Bulge/Bastogne - Excellent Condition This is an extremely rare example of a German Propaganda leaflet. The leaflet is coded K1-907 on the rear. The pamphlet seems somewhat wrinckled which is a common feature for leaflets that have been forced out of an artillery shell as would have been the case with these pamphlets. This leaflet would date back to late december 1944. Interesting is the fact that Bastogne is specificly mentioned as Bastogne was the stronghold of American troops of which the Germans could not take. The leaflet bluffs about knowing the strategy of the Americans on their next move. Also they added some divide and conquer by pointing out that some U.S. troops would be under command of the British. Ultimately the Americans kept put and Germans retreated into Germany. An incredible piece of history both on propeganda and Battle of the Bulge.

Fighting the British at Arnhem SS-Unterführerschule Arnheim Its Origins and Operations against the 1st British Airborne Division September 1944 By BoB Gerritsen - New Fighting the British at Arnhem’ describes, amongst other events, the involvement of the SS-Unterführerschule Arnheim in what is now known as ‘The Battle of Arnhem’. The SS-Unterführerschule Arnheim was a school for soldiers of the Waffen-SS where they were trained to become non-commissioned officers. The training was extremely demanding and rigorous. During the ‘Battle of Arnhem’ the school's officers and students were chiefly deployed on the western fringes of the area so desperately defended by the 1st British Airborne Division. The school was established at the end of 1943 in Arnhem and remained there till August 1944. In that month the school was sent to the Dutch coast and deployed for coastal defence duties. At the beginning of September 1944 it was moved again. This time the school had to take up security duties along the River Waal. When, on 17th September 1944, the 1st British Airborne Division landed in the Wolfheze area, the school was swiftly mobilised and transported to the battle area. It was incorporated into the ‘Kampfgruppe von Tettau’, a force raised as a direct result of the airborne landings. This force was commanded by Generalleutnant Hans von Tettau. Its main task was to destroy the British airborne forces and thwart Allied plans, both of which they managed to do. Not only doe Fighting the British at Arnhem SS-Unterführerschule Arnheim Its Origins and Operations against the 1st British Airborne Division September 1944 By BoB Gerritsen s Bob Gerritsen share with us the school's early history and its deployment during the Battle of Arnhem, but he goes on to describe the unit’s desperate struggle to fend off later Allied attacks in the area south of the River Rhine. There the school fought fierce battles and suffered many casualties, eventually leading to its demise and disbandment in November 1944. R.N. Sigmond Publishing, 224 pages, ISBN 9081270397.

Deze Roll of Honour was samengesteld door de heer J.A. Heij. Jan Heij hield zich al jaren bezig met onderzoek naar de gesneuvelde geallieerde militairen in Nederland en gold als een autoriteit op dit terrein. De samenstelling was tot stand gekomen met de toenmalige beschikbare gegevens. In de loop der jaren kwamen er steeds maar gegevens beschikbaar. Diverse archieven werden voor derden toegankelijk en ook andere onderzoekers leverden nieuwe gegevens aan. Dit resulteerde in diverse heruitgaven van de Roll of Honour. In 1987, 1993 en 1999 verscheen respectievelijk een 2e, 3e en 4e druk. In 2011 besloot de Vereniging een laatste herzien en aangevulde uitgave te maken. Inmiddels waren delen van de Roll of Honour gekopieerd in diverse boeken en stonden ook delen op internet. Voor deze laatste uitgaven werd Jan Heij bijgestaan door een team geleid door Geert Maassen en Philip Reinders. In de 5e druk zijn ondermeer 24 nieuwe namen opgenomen terwijl 10 namen vervallen zijn omdat ze of niet betrokken waren bij de Slag om Arnhem of niet tengevolge van gevechtshandelingen omgekomen waren. Ook werden soms nieuwe gegevens bij de namen gevoegd en zijn nieuwe foto’s opgenomen. Helemaal compleet zal de Roll of Honour nooit worden maar mochten er toch nog enkele nieuwe relevante gegevens opduiken dan zullen die gepubliceerd worden op de website van de Vereniging.
