Former JUGGERNAUT vocalist Harlan Glenn, who appeared on the band’s cult classic “Baptism Under Fire” debut album, has just released a brand new book as the co-author of “Kampfraum Arnheim: A Photo Study Of The German Soldier Fighting In And Around Arnhem September 1944” via RZM Publishing.
“Kampfraum Arnheim” (Battle Zone Arnhem), is a unique in-depth photographic documentation of the German ground forces which opposed the Allied Airborne landings in Holland in September 1944. Their response to this Anglo-American offensive, code-named “Operation Market-Garden,” was chronicled by eight German war correspondents whose 16 rolls of film are the primary focus of this publication. The material was acquired exclusively from the German Federal Archives and depicts Heer, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS troops in action at Arnhem, Nijmegen, Mook and Oosterbeek.
A respected author of several books on militaria and military history as well as an actor in and historical consultant for various war-themed feature films and television documentries, Harlan Glenn was born in Tripoli, Libya and lived on Okinawa Japan, and Oahu, Hawaii before settling down in San Antonio, Texas with his family. An avid fan of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, Glenn got involved in the thriving Texas metal scene of the early 1980s and became the controversial frontman for San Antonio upstarts JUGGERNAUT. The band would contribute a demo track, “In The Blood Of Virgins”, to Metal Blade‘s “Metal Massacre VII” compilation before being picked up by the label for a full-album deal, issuing two albums in the process, “Baptism Under Fire” (1986) — reissued on CD by Germany’s High Vaultage label in 1998 — and “Trouble Within” (1988).
Glenn left JUGGERNAUT in 1987 for Los Angeles, California where he fronted locals BON APPETIT before turning his attention to acting work and writing. His first book was 1999’s “For King And Country: British Airborne Uniforms, Insignia Equipment In World War II”.
