Here is Schrodek's book on the 11th Panzer Division. It has hundreds of pages of photos dating back to the Balkans campaign all the way to the surrender in 1945. A majority of the photos are devoted to the campaigns of 1941, 1942 and 1943. Photos of divisional vehicles used, especially good close up views of Panthers, during the Normandy Campaign are few and sparce. Of course, many of the archived photos pertaining to 1944 to 1945 were destroyed and lost during those last years on the war.
Nevertheless, this is an excellent book and highly recommended for anyone interested in the 11PD. The photos are captioned in German and translated to English.
A series of photos shows vehicles in battle during the summer 1942 offensive caused me to re-evaluate my force, which will be the subject of my next entry.
