This book is the second volume of the history of a single Panzerfuhrer and the men who served under him. Johannes Muhlenkamp rose to the rank of SS Standartenfuhrer (Oberst) and held the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and other high honors that reflect not only his achievements but also those of his men.
To the soldiers under his command, he was a figurehead who was often to be found standing over his tank, his face covered in dust, leading them into battle. He always led the front.
Profusely illustrated with hundreds of previously unseen photographs, documents and maps and assembled with the assistance of veterans and Muhlenkamp's family, this book is an exceptional document in words and images of the life of a single Panzer regiment of the famous Wiking division.
