Each chapter follows the vehicle through prototypes, production models and variants, with each Ausf or model having a individual section. Each of THESE section is further divided into : Technical data,history,specific features and combat history.
Well illustrated throughout with black and white photo's including most of which I had never seen before , the authors try to show as many variants and models as possible. There are some truly odd things here, how about french halftracks with a 24 rail 80cm rocket launcher on the the back? or ( my favourite ) the Panzerjager Bren, thats right captured Bren gun carriers with 3 forward firing Panzerschrecks(bazookas) mounted over the body:-)
What more can I say, incredibly comprehensive, well illustrated. the first thing I bought from Amazon. A great book
Superbly concentrated and offering one or two gold nuggets even for the veterans on the subject, it is undoubtedly the best buy available.
It is the book I would have wanted from the beginning and it is the last book Ill leave behind as far as this subject goes.
