The Hermann Goring Division

Series: Men-at-Arms (385)
The unit named after the Reichsmarschall started out as a Prussian Police regiment under Goring's control during the period of consolidation of Nazi power. With the outbreak of war it became a ground combat unit of his Luftwaffe; and was steadily increased in size and equipment until it became an armoured division, and by 1945 - nominally - a Parachute Armoured Corps of two-division strength. This work describes the organization, battle history and uniforms of this crack unit.
