Description

George Forty describes the design and construction of all German tanks of World War Two, from the diminutive PzKpfw I to the 'superheavy' prototypes which existed in 1945, such as the Maus. He gives details of their armour, armament, power plants, suspension, and other facts necessary to an understanding of their use in battle, supported by dozens of rare photographs. ~ But the book's emphasis is on action, and there are numerous accounts - from both the German and the Allied point of view - of individual engagements which show how the different types of tanks were used tactically and give the reader a vivid impression of 'being there.' ~ As well as the tanks themselves, the author also describes variants built on their chassis, such as self-propelled guns, command and observation vehicles, engineer, recovery, and other types. Meticulously researched and documented by one of the world's foremost authorities on armoured warfare, this addition to the library of books on German AFV's will be welcomed by the many thousands for whom it is a perennially fascinating subject.
