Synopsis

The German Army Mountain Soldier of World War II by Wade Krawczyk, Bart Jansen

The Mountain Troops of the German Army in World War II were an elite of a special kind. Unlike the Panzer units, they did not field the mot modern equipment of their day. Unlike the Waffen-SS, they were not hand-picked for their Nazi loyalty. If anything, the respect attracted by their special cap and their Edelweiss insignia was earned by rather old-fashioned miltiary virtues - by sheer physical prowess, in uniquely testing conditions. The Gebirgsjager had to be able to do what other soldiers did - but in places where no other soldiers had the strength and the skills to go, and often in weather no other soldiers could face.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
