These are the first two volumes in an exquisite new series of collector-quality photo books by RZM Publishing. Embracing an aesthetic seen only in high-end art photography books, RZM presents over 28 rolls of newly discovered combat film shot by six Waffen-SS Kriegsberichters (war correspondents) during the renowned Eastern Front battle of Kursk, July 1943. In addition to being an invaluable visual reference for all students of military history, this poignant six volume series focuses on the pure human experience of the frontline infantryman, a subject too often eclipsed by the grandeur of the political and military landscape of the Second World War. Printed on deluxe European semi-matte art paper for unparalleled photographic reproduction, each page literally "pulls" you into the images, making you feel as though you are a part of the action. This documentary style series presents the photographs in the actual sequence in which they were taken, creating a visual diary unlike anything previously published on the subject.Both volumes contain extraordinary images of the men and armored vehicles of the 1st SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Division "Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler" and the 3rd SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Division "Totenkopf, " in action and at rest. Further volumes will be published over the course of the next few seasons.
