Could I pick your brains? A work colleague's wife is the granddaughter of a 4 Gebirgsj?ger Division veteran who has since passed away. She is currently devoted to finding out as much about the 4 Gebirgsj?ger as possible.

Could any one recommend reference material on this division that is best for historical and pictural content? (She speaks both German and English.)

I believe she has this book "Enzian und Edelweiss Die 4. Gebirgs-Division 1940 - 1945" by Julius Braun but has found it too technical. I have conducted some internet research and see there is another author who seems to specialise in Gebirgs Division - Roland Kaltenegger. Would you recommend any of his works? Are there any other books that would be recommended?

I found a few websites but there's not a huge amount of detailed information:
