AN ECLIPSE WITHOUT A FUTURE The Battles for North Germany 1945


An Eclipse without a Future 1945 describes in great detail the fighting during the last month of WW II in northern Germany between the Weser and Elbe rivers. The remnants of Germany’s armed forces desperately fought a gigantic withdrawal action that had no practical objective. Squeezed between the American and British armies rushing eastward and the approaching Soviet behemoth, the German Heer, Waffen-SS and Marine soldiers fought desperately to salvage some semblance of an honourable peace. They were supported by foreign volunteer, Hitlerjugend and Volkssturm formations of little military value. Most of the German troops honoured their oath and fought till the bitter end, inflicting casualties on the Allied armies and laying down their lives for the Fatherland until the last day.
