Item description for STANDARTENFUHRER JOHANNES MUHLENKAMP VOL 1: Kommandeur des SS-Panzerregiments 5 "Wiking" und Seine Manner (German Edition) by Paul Oosterling, Hans Fischer & Ron Erlings...
This book is the history of a single Panzeruhrer and the men who served under him. Johannes Muhlenkamp rose to the rank of SS-Standartenfuhrer (Oberst) and held the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and other high honors that reflected not only his achievements but also those of his men.
To the soldiers under his command he was a figurehead who was often to be found standing over his tank, his face covered in dust, leading them into battle. He always led from the front.
Profusely illustrated with hundreds of previously unseen photographs, documents and maps and assembled with the assistance of veterans and Muhlenkamp's family, this book is an exceptional document in words and images of the life of a single panzer regiment of the famous Wiking division.

A Tribute To My Father Aug 30, 2005
Paul Oosterling wrote this outstanding book about Johannes Muhlenkampf with the help of a couple of old veterans of this period. One of them was my father whose outstanding photographic memory helped the writer in stories and adventures of this famous Wiking division. Sadly my father didn't live to see this book coming out, he died march 15th 2003. Paul Oosterling gave to me, as a tribute to my father, one of the 1st original very luxury pressings and I could read all the stories my father and many other veterans have told and are now forever for everybody accesible. This book gives you a very good impression what this division has lived through the years they fought in Russia, Poland and Hungary. Outstanding performance of a elite soldiers division kept forever in this book.
