Until now, this esential reference book has only been available in its hard-to-find German version - Helion are pleased to announce a complete translation of this important source. The text lists all known recipents (over 7000 of them) giving name, rank, unit, and date of award for each. Recipents of the higher classes of this decoration, such as the Knight's Cross with Oak Leave, are also included. Additional information relating to the recipient, such as date, place and cause of death, posthumous prmomotions etc. are included where appropriate. Corrections and revisions from previous German editions have been incorporated into the text. Detailed appendices complement the listings of recipients, providing information about award guidelines, promotions made at the very end of the war on the autonomous authority of Army Groups and Armies, etc. A list of abbreviations and a glossary are also included. This edition is destined to become a standard reference work on the Second World War German Armed Forces - Army, Kriegsmarine, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS.
