A new book is available from RZM Imports. It is focused on the photos from an SS war correspondent during two weeks in 1944.
This hardcover volume has 136 high quality photos on its 192 pages, and some of the photos even spread over two pages.

According to the publishing note, it 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 armored and cavalry forces following their crushing defeat of Army Group Center in Belarus during the Red Army's "Operation Bagration" summer offensive.

These images of the Waffen-SS in action have been scanned from the actual negatives and digitally enhanced and enlarged. Together with thoroughly researched text and captions as well as four military maps, the photos are 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 counterattacks at Kamieniec-Litevski and the relief of Gren. Btl. z.b.V. 560 on 22 July 1944.
