Hold the Westwall is the dramatic story of Panzer Brigade 105, one of Germany's experimental independent armored brigades, and its formation, deployment (including its defense of the Siegfried Line), and ultimate destruction. Relying heavily on primary documents and interviews, it also presents American accounts of what it was like to fight the brigade. It is the first book in English on Germany’s failed experiment with independent armored brigades in World War II.
Timm Haasler also contributed to Duel in the Mist about the Battle of the Bulge. He lives in Germany.
