DHM1817AP. Heer Grenadiers - Operation Citadel, July 1943 by Chris Collingwood.
In July 1943 during the eastern campaign, 15 divisions of the German field army (feldheer) were needed for Operation Citadel. The losses suffered were so heavy that there were no longer enough recruits available to replace the fallen. Back in Germany, young men of 18 and 19 were being incorporated into Ersatz-Battalione to fill the depleted ranks. Through the gloom and smoke of battle, two such Grenadiers sight the enemy. The ever present tension and fear of mortal combat takes hold - only their courage and training may save them.
Limited edition of 40 artist proofs.

DHM972AP. SS Panzer Grenadiers by Chris Collingwood.
The term Panzergrenadier was applied equally to both the infantry section of the German Panzer Divisons and was also used for the new Panzergrenadier Divisions. The German army Panzergrenadier Divisions initially came from existing infantry divisions but were the first Divisons to be motorised. These included the 3rd, 10th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 18th, 20th, 25th, and 29th divisions. During the war special elite regiments such as the Grosdeutchland Division were created. The Waffen SS also produced a number of panzergrenadier regiments. Many army and Waffen SS regiments were upgraded to Panzer divisions during the later stages of the war. The Panzergrenadier division usually consisted of six battalions of truck-mounted infantry organized into either two or three regiments, also a battalion of tanks and artillery were included along with sections of anti-tank, anti-aircraft and combat engineers. Panzer grenadier divisions were often equipped with assault guns - Stugs. Panzergrenadier divisions had one tank battalion less than a Panzer division but strengthened with two more infantry battalions. Of 226 panzergrenadier battalions in the whole of the German Army, Waffen SS (and some in the Luftwaffe ) in September 1943, only 26 were equipped with armoured half tracks, the remaining Panzergrenadier divisions were equipped with trucks.
