Until now, this essential reference book has only been available in its hard-to-find German version - Helion are pleased to announce not only a complete translation of this important source, but publication of an extended volume containing hundreds of photographic portraits of recipients, specially added to this English edition. The text lists all known recipients (over 7,000 of them), giving name, rank, unit, and date of award for each. Recipients of the higher classes of this decoration, such as the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, are also included. Helion are adding over 400 b/w photographic portraits to this edition, which is destined to become a standard reference book on the Second World War German Armed Forces - Army, Kriegsmarine, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS. The publication of occasional updates is planned, containing corrections and amendments.
