Great Book, dynamite Research 9 Jan. 2002
By jagjetta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The black wrap-around jackets with bloused trousers worn by Germany's Panzer troops were perhaps the most engaging and attractive uniforms of World War II. Field Uniforms of German Panzer Forces in World War 2 covers all the field uniforms, insignia, and headgear worn by the German Army Panzer forces from 1934-1945 in one massive volume. Each armor-related branch of the service is described with details about uniforms and insignia within these units. The book features both period photographs and color images of uniforms in private collections.
The authors have divided the book into thirteen chapters representing twelve different branches of armor in the Wehrmacht. Each chapter begins with an overview of the particular group of Panzer troops, followed by a detailed account of their uniforms, branch colors, and specialized insignia.
In addition to extensive, fully documented research, the authors have selected a combination of more than 300 studio portraits, in-the-field images, and death cards to trace the evolution of the various uniforms of the Panzer troops in WWII. Great images run the gamut from beret-wearing troops astride Panzerkamfwagen IIIs to coverall-wearing soldiers of the Eisenbanpanzerzuegen (armored rail cars). If you even have a passing interest in Germany's armored forces, this book will provide an intimate view.

Tops 2 Aug. 2004
By Michael A Dorosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Hard to argue with the other reviewer here. The book is usefully divided into chapters by branch of service (after introductory comments in general on the uniforms). The branch of service info is all footnoted with reference to German regulations, and discusses waffenfarben, shoulder strap devices, "elite unit" insignia where it deviated from the norm, dates of issue when insignia details changed, collar tabs, cuff titles, and other misc. insignia associated with each branch.

Jam packed with this information, the text is fully supported primarily by rare and unpublished wartime photographs.

A colour photo section is included; the photos are a bit murky and the section is not greatly organized, but is a nice addition.

There are also useful appendices and annexes giving a survey of numbered regiments of the various branches.

All major branches that wore the AFV uniform (both field grey and black, as well as denim summer variants, all of which are discussed and illustrated in this book) are covered, and even the Propaganda Companies, with several rare photos of the AFV uniforms in use by an Armoured Propaganda Company.

Most complete resource out there - be advised only Army formations are covered, no SS or Luftwaffe coverage - as the title very well states!
