More About the Author

Robert J. Edwards was a career Army officer in the active component, the reserves and the National Guard. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant of Armor through the Reserve Officer Training Corps at the University of Nevada, Reno, in 1976 and then served as an armor officer and foreign area specialist in a variety of command and staff positions, both in the United States and in the Federal Republic of Germany. After serving two active duty tours with armor battalions in Germany, he was assigned to the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he taught German for nearly five years. That was followed by a stint as a technical translator for Siemens in Munich and service with a reserve unit there and, in 1993, duties as a mobilization and readiness officer for the Nevada Army National Guard through 1998. That same year, he became a managing partner with J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing in Canada, where he had a hand in translating, editing and laying out nearly 50 titles related to World War II. In 2008, he became a freelance translator and editorial consultant, working closely with Stackpole Books on more than 15 titles in the intervening years.

Long an avid collector of World War II memorabilia, he has co-authored two books on the subject of uniforms of the German armored forces. His interest in armored reconnaissance stems from practical experience as a scout platoon leader and selection for command of a National Guard cavalry squadron, as well as a fascination for the "eyes and ears" of the commander that dates back to his youth. He lives in Navarre along the Emerald Coast in the northwestern part of Florida, along with his wife, Ramona, two dogs, two cats and an ever encroaching army of squirrels in his backyard.

Format: Hardcover
Those who purchased Pruett and Edwards' "Field Uniforms of German Army Panzer Forces in WWII" will be familiar with the comprehensive nature of this title. In this volume, they cover the "everything else" uniforms of the German armed forces such as the Waffen SS, Afrika Korps and Hermann Goring formations. A wealth of contemporary photographs is supplemented by a color section that features uniforms and insignia owned by collectors. The authors include information that allows one to accurately date the appearance of a particular uniform or feature, and this is backed up by footnoted references. This book is an excellent reference tool for memorabilia collectors, figure painters and anyone who is interested in German uniforms of the Second World War.
