Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the second volume in a new series of ten titles that will focus on the campaigns of the German Panzerwaffe in the World War 2 and the strengths and weaknesses of its commanders and operational methods. Each book will feature a detailed narrative text, describing the planning of each campaign, command and leadership within the Panzerwaffe, strategy and tactics, analysis of successes and failures, orders of battle and a technical overview of armored vehicle types and their variants, In addition, there will be a focus on key commanders, individual units and tank aces in the theatres being discussed.

The narrative text of each book will be written by one or more acknowledged specialists in their field under the coordination of the Series Editor, John Prigent, himself a renowned expert on the German Panzerwaffe. All the books in the series will be authorative and visually exciting. The text will be supported by around 150 rare and fascinating photographs, there will be specially commissioned color artworks of the tanks described and pictured, 'relief'-style terrain maps, graphics illustrating tactics and battles, sidebars and text boxes.

This is an exciting new series which will apply a fresh and highly illustrated treatment to this subject matter, and provide much of interest for those absorbed in the history of mechanized warfare in the last century and offer much practical help for the military modelers.

Synopsis:

Designed with the war-gamer and military historian in mind, this new Ian Allan Publishing series is a pictorial reference to many of the most important tank designs of the 20th century. One of the most successful of prewar light tanks was the Czech LT-38 (TNHP). Absorbed into the German Army after annexation, it was outclassed as a gun tank on the Eastern Front but its chassis formed the basis of the Marder SPG and the Jagdpanzer Hetzer.
