(FORWARD FOR GERMANY)

A REMEMBRANCE BOOK FOR MEMBERS OF "SS-STANDARTE DEUTSCHLAND" WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE WESTERN CAMPAIGN!

The title of this rare original book, "Vorwärts für Deutschland" was also the motto of the SS Standarte Deutschland which was formed 1934 as SS-Standarte 2 / VT from Politische Bereitschaft Württemberg, Politische Bereitschaft München and Hilfswerk Schleissheim (Austrian volunteers) as part of the SS-Verfügungstruppe. It was soon renamed SS-Standarte 1 / VT when Hitler ordered that Leibstandarte-SS Adolf Hitler LSSAH would not be included in the numbering sequence. It was renamed SS-Standarde Deutschland at the Parteitag at Nuremberg 1935 and at the same time it also received its Deutschland Erwache standard. It was commanded by SS-Standartenführer Felix Steiner, participated in the annex of Austria and the occupation of the Sudetenland. It was motorized after the Anschluss and took part in the annexation of Bohemia and Moravia Mar 1939. It took part in the invasion of Poland attached to Panzer-Division Kempf and following that campaign it was used to form SS-Division Verfügungstruppe (later renamed Das Reich). The SS Division Das Reich (germ. 2.SS-Panzer-Division Das Reich) was one of the elite divisions of the thirty-eight divisions fielded by the Waffen-SS during World War II. It served from the invasion of France and took part in several major battles on the Eastern Front (particularly in the Battle of Prokhorovka against The 5th Guards Tank Army at the titanic Battle of Kursk), before it was pulled back to France and took part in the fighting in Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge and the last, desperate fighting in Hungary and Austria.

This very hard to find 5-3/4 x 8 inch, 102-page hardcover book contains small stories of heroism during the campaign against France and the British Expeditionary Forces in 1940, narrated by members of the SS Standarte Deutschland. The Preface is written by SS-Standartenführer Felix Steiner. This is the only copy we have seen in years!
