Book Description

22 Nov 1999 Europa Militaria Special (Book 13)
The uniforms of German tank troops were arguably among the most dramatic of any worn by World War II combat units. Today, more than a half century after these items were last worn in battle, accurate references for panzertruppe dress, headgear, insignia, and special equipment are particularly sought-after by collectors and modelers. Close-up color photographs of a remarkable range of original panzer uniforms as worn by live models are accompanied by a thorough text explaining each article in detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good read for the panzer interested! 7 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
An exccellent introduction to german WWII panzer uniforms - the differences between type I, II and III is explained well and the reader is treated with some very photograps and with lots of good details shots - a must have book for the collector, modeller and reenactor.
My only regret is that the author doesn't cover any camouflage variants.

5.0 out of 5 stars Army Panzer Uniforms in Color Photographs(WWII) 31 Mar 2000
By Eric Binder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If a "picture states a thousand words", Wade Krawczyk's new book speaks volumes. If you are a panzer memorabilia collector this is an absolute must have reference. As the title suggests this work is strictly color photos of panzer uniforms and insignia from WWII. There are absolutely outstanding photos to include closeups of the inside and outside of original panzer wraps worn throughout the war. The pictures are of the best quality I have ever seen in a refernce work and cover not only the panzer, but panzerjaeger and assault artillery. The insignia section shows both front and back of collar tabs,shoulderboards and panzer assault badges.There is also an excellent section showing paper items such as soldbuchs and deathcards. I recommend this book highly to any serious collector,historian, or modeler who wants to see period, original uniforms worn by the WWII German panzertruppe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inbetween 2 Aug 2004
By Michael A Dorosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book occupies the ground between an inexpensive primer like the Men at Arms books, and the hardcover coffee table type books like Pruett and Edwards' "Field Uniforms of German Army Panzer Forces."

Anyone thinking of buying any of the Osprey titles - either the Panzer Divisions title or the title on tank crews - would be advised to think about what they really want to see. The former concentrates on divisional history and has only some general uniform details. The latter goes into greater detail but talks more about day to day life and equipment.

This book, however, concentrates solely on the uniforms, and does so with beautiful colour photos of surviving garments. Captions are well done.

However, this book does not reach the level of detail Pruett and Edwards have achieved. It also costs a fraction of Pruett and Edwards' book, and has better colour photos.

As a basic general reference to uniform types, it would be my second choice if price wasn't a concern, and my first choice if it was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Army Panzer Uniforms in Color Photographs 9 Oct 2001
By Everett Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Like all the Militaria Europa series this is a masterpiece on the subject. Every aspect of the German armored vehicle crewmans' uniform is lavishly photographed and discussed in great detail.The book even displays laundry and tailors markings and how to tell the sizes and dates of manufacture and unit the garment was issued to from markings in the clothing.THE book on the subject.Any WW2 uniform buff,tank modeller,or student of the German armed forces MUST have this in your library.

The real panzer uniforms are displayed clearly in this book. The colour pictures are very sharp and provide vast amount of information on the real stuff. WW2 historians and modelling enthusiasts should consider getting this book.
