PANZERS EAST AND WEST

by Dieter Stenger





Organized during 1943, 10th SS Panzer Division saw its first action in the spring of 1944 during the attempt to relieve an encircled German army on the Eastern Front. Several months later they were ordered west to Normandy, where by mid-June 1944 German defenses against the Allied offensive were crumbling. Here the division engaged in a series of armored ounterattacks against British and American forces. The 10th SS gradually had to fall back to Falaise, where the division escaped the Allied encirclement with no tanks and only a fraction of its men. They next defended against the Allied airborne assault during Operation Market Garden in September 1944, fought in Alsace before returning to the Eastern Front. There, east of Berlin, the division participated in the final, futile battles against the Red Army before escaping to Czechoslovakia to surrender to the U.S. Army.

PALACE GATE: UNDER SIEGE IN HUE CITY

by Lt. Col. (USAF) Richard L. Brown 

January 31, 1968. A cold, dense fog had settled over the city of Hue, South Vietnam. Nothing could be seen or heard until the blinding flash and shocking concussion of an exploding rocket tore through the fog. A hail of rockets and mortar shells was followed by a sustained ground attack. It was soon obvious to the Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force personnel inside the compound that a large group of people outside the compound wanted to kill them. The Tet offensive on Hue was on. The intense fighting lasted for a month and the NLF massacred thousands of residents of the city.

CONQUER OR DIE!

by Ben Hughes

Wellington’s Veterans and the Liberation of the New World. In the aftermath of Waterloo, over 6,000 British volunteers sailed across the Atlantic to aid Simon Bolivar in his liberation of Gran Columbia from her oppressors in Madrid. The expeditions were plagued with disaster from the start, one ship sank shortly after leaving Portsmouth with the loss of almost 200 lives. Those who reached the New World faced disease, wild animals, mutiny and desertion, and conditions on campaign were appalling. Nevertheless, those who endured made key contributions to Bolivar’s success.
