Jim,

The book is now in stock with our UK distributor. I think the best price will be with Panzerwrecks.com They are selling the book with a -15% discount. They also have the special RZM boxes designed to ship the book.

Go to this link to order it.

I’ve ordered from Panzerwrecks. Unfortunately the ship transporting the packaging was re-routed to Germany, so the despatch of the book has been delayed until early October. But I’m sure it will be worth the wait!

I don't understand how this is the UK distributor, there are 4 UK shops selling this book all with discounts ?

I spent the extra money an got the signed edition.Fantastic!
You should read it conjunction with the book "Wiking: A Dutch SS-er on the Eastern front" by
Henk Kistemaker.
He was the tank driver in panther #611 which is featured in several of the photos.

I got my copy today and I was surprised how bigger it is than Kampfgruppe Mühlenkamp book. Of course it is full of quality stuff, a nice series of photographs of one day action at Eastern front. Also, descriptions have a lot of value itself, as provide a lot of useful information and are very well researched.
I just wonder what's else in Ernst Baumann Archiv (maybe some photos of combat around Warsaw in August 1944?).

Glad to hear you are enjoying your copy of the book.

Yes I have at least four more books which will be published in the coming years featuring photos exclusively by Ernst Baumann. He was with the Germania Regiment from Oct. 1942 until Aug. 1944.

The books I have in the works now are,

Wiking in the Caucasus Oct. 42 to Jan. 43

Battle for Kovel Mar. - Apr. 1944

Wiking in the East Aug. 1944

There may be one more book which will show the day in the life of a WSS soldier serving in Germania, but that's not 100% for sure. Baumann took some excellent photos when Germania was resting and rebuilding in 1943.
