I enjoyed this book very much and am glad I added it to my collection. The authors Walter Spielberger, Thomas Jentz and artist Hilary Doyle are German armor experts. This book does not disappoint. It has everything you could want, great photos, line drawings, B&W photos (sorry no color), statistics, reports from the Panzer soldiers who used these beasts in action.
The book traces the origins of the Jadgpanther (anti-tank 88mm tank destroyer based on the Panther hull) to the Ferdinand/Elephant (88mm based on the Tiger hull) to the monster called Jagd Tiger a 122mm tank destroyer. The book shows how all of them were very capable of destroying any tank on the battlefield, but there were too few of them, too many breakdowns and they were too complicated to make during "wartime conditions" (Germany being bombed 24x7).
A must have for any serious armor book collector.
