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.
