Book Description

4 Sep 1986
The German Armed Corps - the Panzerwaffe - was instrumental in the lightning conquests of the Nazis between 1939 and 1942, and in the remaining years of the war it provided the very backbone of Germany's defence. The commitment of the officers and men of this elite force made an enormous impact on World War II, particularly on the Eastern front. The titanic struggles which took place there after the early victories in Poland, the West and the Balkans demonstrated the German tank soldier's superior tactical abilities. This account tells the story of this band of soldiers, the evolution of their tactics and the development of their superlative fighting vehicles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Achtung Panzer! 17 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found "Knights of the Black Cross" to be an excellent history of the Panzer (armoured) arm of the German Wehrmacht from its creation up to the end of World War II. As well as providing a really great overview of the equipment, strategy and leaders of the Panzerwaffe, it gives well-researched, detailed examples of how the Panzerwaffe fought and analyses German armoured doctrine in detail. It gives a good picture of how the war impacted on production and logistics for the Panzerwaffe, and served to remind me of how shaky Germany's armoured performance was during the war. I'd strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in World War II. It's clearly-written enough to be highly useful to the amateur historian, yet detailed and analytical enough to provide a great source to a full-time student of military history. Five stars.

By Pronab M. Kolkata - Published on Amazon.com
Very well written. Throws light on little known aspects of the Nazi Empire: "The view from the other side" if you will.
