RZM has a new book due in January about Kampfgruppe Mühlenkamp.This unit was part of 5. SS-Panzer Division Wiking.
Written by Douglas E. Nash & Remy Spezzano, the book presents for the first time a sequential series of images taken by SS war correspondent Ernst Baumann in Eastern Poland during a two week period in July 1944.

At this time the 5. SS-Panzer Division Wiking was engaged in counter-attacks against Soviet armoured and cavalry forces following their crushing defeat of Army Group Center in Belarus during the Red Army's "Operation Bagration" summer offensive.

The images have been scanned from the actual negatives and digitally enhanced and enlarged to bring out a previously unseen level of detail. Together with thoroughly researched text and captions as well as four military maps, there are 134 photos shown in their proper sequence and matched with the dates and locations of the various engagements as they unfolded.

The names of the officers appearing in the photos, and the troops, vehicles and weapons of the units under their command are documented in the accompanying narrative of the events which comprised the counter attacks at Kamieniec-Litevski and the relief of Gren. Btl. z.b.V. 560 on 22 July 1944.
