It's from the Time Life series 'The Third Reich'.

If memory serves, the title is either "Lightning War" or "Reach for Empire". There are 21 volumes in the set. The whole lot will set you back $225 on Amazon. You can buy individual titles there as well. The price variation is wide ($4 to $21).

Interesting data. Kreta and Normandy are still tied at the top, with Italy being a strong 3rd.

Keep the survey going!

When someone says Fallschirmjager the mind goes directly to Kreta. So KRETA is the best for me

Only FJ item I have is a barn find lid from Normandy, at least that's what I hope it is. So Normandy campaign for me.
