Book Description

1 Oct 2006 Stackpole Military History
Michael Wittmann was by far the most famous tank ace on any side in World War II, destroying 138 enemy tanks and 132 anti-tank guns with his Tiger. This classic of armoured warfare is both combat biography and unit history, as Patrick Agte focuses on the life and career of Wittmann but also includes his fellow Tiger commanders in the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler. Volume One covers the Eastern Front, where Wittmann racked up more than 100 kills and participated in the Battle of Kursk in 1943. It includes maps, official documents, newspaper clippings, and orders of battle.

4.0 out of 5 stars For those interested in WWII tanks 28 Oct 2013
By nigels
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very detaild account of a german battalion in World War Two. It is more of a factual account of the men and the organisation than a social history. About half the book is about their actions and half about non fighting events,movements and organisation.As I am very interested in German WWII Assaullt Guns and Tanks this book ticks all the boxes for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting but could have been shorter 22 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
This is the first account I read on Waffen SS Tank troops. It surely is a detailed account of Wittmann's exploits, you almost get a day to day account of his where abouts and with whom he spoke that day. What lets the book down a bit is the fact that many parts in the book are mentioned more than once. Part 1 contains a whole section that re/occurs about 10 pages later in full.
I only read part 1 and only pick up part 2 if it's in the bargain bin.
Nevertheless, I found this book provides you with insight in how these soldiers went to war and how the tank units were built up. It also contains many previously unseen pictures from personal archives.
Personally I prefer Otto Carius' own account a more pallatble read than this book.(also by Stackpole)
Last but not least, I appreciate the fact that more and more of these accounts from the Axis side of WW II become available in English language.

Format:Paperback
Covers much more than just the ascendancy of Michael Wittman; includes evolution of the Tiger Tank and tactics for its deployment in battle.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Historical Book 5 Nov 2011
By M. Ives
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great book on the life of a great man in terrible times. Not only that, but a good historical reference book which certainly casts a new light on certain 'allied' version of events. History is always written by the victor they say; its nice to know that sometimes the defeated can often throw a spanner in the works too!
