I spent $28 on this book. Please, if you don't believe me, read any of the reviews at Amazon before you spend your hard earned bucks. Except for some photos, this book is a piece of crap. Schiffer Publishing obviously let it get through without proofreading, and the same must be said for the author. This guy can't write and belongs back in Freshman Composition 101. I get a headache just trying to read this book. That plus hte fact most of the book is regurgitated history of the 1st SS Panzer Division, and reveals very little of substance about Wittmann himself. And any new info presented I have to call into question when the author blatantly states that Sepp Dietrich was a Lieutenant in WW1. If you MUST have this book, then realize you are paying a LOT of money for a few photos.
