CROSS OF IRON again utilizes programmed instruction to guide you through 8 scenarios of increasing realism and complexity/10(). This book provides a representative selection of Knights Cross winners (Ritterkreuztrager) from all branches of the German armed forces. Just over pages with numerous black & white photographs this book is a nice, easy to read and well researched account of these brave men/5.

      Cross of Iron is an atmospheric, unflinching tale of the German retreat, though its sedate pace holds it back from greatness. With The Knights Cross of the Iron Cross (and its higher grades) Dietrich Maerz takes military collecting reference works to an entirely new level. An engineer by trade, the author utilizes two major aspects of his profession - logic and attention to detail - to present the reader with a valuable and almost infallible reference volume. The combination of reason with the most detailed graphics.

    Ace of the Iron Cross book. Read 8 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Memoirs of German WW1 ace Ernst Udet/5. The problem is Stransky is a complete coward and recognizes that the only way he can be awarded an Iron Cross would be to get the bitter Steiner on his side. Rating: R75%.
