Item description for Chronique de la SS-PZ-AA10 by Stepahne Cazenave...
This exceptional volume is a comprehensive account of one small unit in the 10th SS Panzerdivision "Frundsberg".
Comprising the contributions of some twenty veterans, the book contains many previously unpublished photographs of the SdKfz 250/251 and the Spahwagen (reconnaissance armored vehicles). It provides a detailed account of their training in France and of all the battles they fought from Tarnopol in the Ukraine to Normandy.
The author has compiled detailed lists showing the members of each company and provides detailed biographies of each of the officers who served and fought, with particular attention being given to those who received top awards such as the RK and the DKiG. Two units in particular are singled out for special treatment: Erich Rech's Spahtrupp (uniquely Rech received the RK for the action of this unit in Normandy), his Panzerfahrer and the Panzerchef support armored vehicles.
Lists of losses and honors support the study.
Published in hardback in a bilingual French/German edition, the book comprises some 300 pages and 200 photographs, most of which have not been seen before.

Thouroughly Reseached Unit History Jul 12, 2008
I recently finished reading this book and found it to be quite good. The author, Stephan Cazenave, succeeds in presenting a detailed history of the SS-Panzer Aufklärungs Abteilung 10 "Frundsberg" through the support of a number of veterans, to include the former unit commander, SS-Sturmbannführer Heinz Brinkmann. The large format 304-page book by Heimdal is profusely illustrated with previously unpublished photos, most of which were provided by veterans of the unit. The author clearly did a lot of extensive original research over many years and does a good job of presenting the facts without editorializing. Even though the text is in the French, the photo captions are easy to understand for those who are challenged by that language.
