Heer im Focus No 2 is a new series created by a team of renowned experts. This booklet aims to focus specifically on battles, vehicles, equipment, and soldiers that have been underrepresented in existing literature. Like ‘Luftwaffe im Focus’ and ‘U-Boot im Focus,’ thorough research takes precedence.

Trust our reports; we delve deep into the subjects. That’s precisely what we have done: research German Army history in a way you won’t find elsewhere. It’s worth noting that we cover all troops that have been engaged in ground operations, including air force units such as paratroopers, air force field divisions, or anti-aircraft units.

For illustrations, we also rely on unique original Agfa Color colour slides from private collections. These photographs have never been shown before and shed new light on historical events. ‘Heer im Focus’ is not just for military enthusiasts; model builders will also benefit from excellent model templates (profile drawings and B+W and colour photos). We also keep diorama builders in mind.
