Brems. Fred Brems was drafted in 1941, six months before Pearl Harbor. He spent all of World War II as a tanker, serving in the European Theater in the U.S. Army's most celebrated division, the 2nd Armored Division, known as "Hell on Wheels." One of the most renowned units in American military history, the 2nd served in North Africa, Sicily, and Europe and fought in celebrated engagements including Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge, and the Rhine campaign. Brems, who rose up the ranks to command a platoon and then a company of Sherman tanks, photographed it all. Through over 600 photos, many never before published, supplemented by firsthand accounts from Brems, Knights of Freedom follows the 2nd Armored through some of the toughest fighting of World War II. It is a visual feast depicting American tank combat as it has never been seen before.
