The 10.Panzer-Division is probably one of the few, if not the only, division to fight in such varied terrain and climatic conditions in so short a time - 4 different campaigns/theaters in 44 short months! It began in 1939 against Poland, followed quickly by the invasion of France (May 1940, when it temporarily had two Panzer Regiments - 7 & 8), then turned around to head East again to participate in Barbarossa (June 1941 with only Panzer Regiment 7; 8.PzRgt was sent to Africa as part of the 15.PzDv), and then at the end of 1942 was sent to Africa to help the becoming-beleagured Deutches Afrika Korps, acquiring and absorbing into its ranks the first company of Tigers (schwere.Panzer-Abteilung 501).There, along with the DAK (and its old original regiment, 8.PzRgt) the 10.PzDv met its end in Tunisia in May 1943.
Restayn and Moller have done an outstanding and fantastic (is that redundant?) job at compiling this hardcover photo ablum documenting the history of the 10.PzDv. There are countless B&W photos from cover to cover, giving a wealth of information for any modeller or gamer (or just general WW2 historian!). Each campaign/theater starts with a breakdown of what the division was comprised of at that time, including how many of what (basic) types of tanks each company had (basic types, i.e., Pz IIIs, Pz IIs, Pz IVs - almost no differentiation is noted in these lists of the ausf. of the panzers; some of that material can be gleaned from the photos that follow). There are photos taken from both the Germans and Allies in this book, of both functional and non-functional vehicles and guns. The final 30-odd pages of the book are color illustrations, along with a few color photographs at the very end.
The quality of the book is excellent (and had better be for being $99!). Far, far better than the Tigers In Combat volumes (of which mine are steadily falling apart after only a half dozen readings). Of all the WW2 books in my library, this is definitely a "must have". I only waited a year to get it because of the price (picking up other, less expensive books in the meantime). But now that I have it, I can't understand why I waited so long. It is WELL worth the cost.
