Foci - The history of the 6th Panzer Division from 1937 to 1945 -
The 6th Panzer Division at the focal points of World War II: Warsaw, Dunkirk, Leningrad, Moscow, Stalingrad, Kharkov, Budapest and Vienna! More than 80,000 young German soldiers - of which nine-tenths of North Rhine-Westphalia - served from 1937-1945 in this division, whose history is recorded and documented here. The use of the Division on all crucial theaters of war justify the title of "focal points". Until her abrupt end on May 8, 1945, with the surrender of the Third Reich, it is possible based on war diaries and documents, as well as the numerous eyewitness accounts, more than a pure experience report, an objective account of the war historical events around the 6th Panzer Division to offer , Exceptional personalities were part of these units: Hoepner, Blomberg or Stauffenberg are just a few names that are still us today deep in my memory.
