Format: Hardcover
For the general reader interested in military history I think there are 3 good reasons to get what might seem a very specialised book of propaganda photos of German anti-tank units :-

…firstly the quality of the pictures (and indeed of the book overall) is excellent. Very many images from this era have survived only as low quality prints, which distances the period from modern readers. These pictures could almost have been taken yesterday – and as a result the immediacy of the scenes is remarkable and their relevance compelling;

…secondly there is the sheer competence of the Propaganda Kompanie photographer in turning what was in reality an inexperienced and inadequately equipped battalion into what they wanted to be seen as a strong, competent unit in which German citizens should have complete faith. Just look at the photo, seemingly taken as a quick snapshot, of the relaxed, highly decorated sergeant instructing the driver on page 13 – who wouldn’t have complete faith in him? Today’s trainee photojournalists might take note;

… thirdly, the images graphically show both underlying strengths and weaknesses of the German armed forces after the Stalingrad turning point. Strengths include the German ability to adapt and re-engineer captured equipment, the importance and high quality of their senior NCOs, and their extraordinary talent in reorganising manpower to meet changing demands. Weaknesses are also apparent – in particular the obsolescence of the military technology facing the imminent Allied invasion.

Overall the book benefits from careful study, and is an absorbing complement to the many good written accounts of the period (one recent read I can recommend is Blood Red Snow by Gunter Koschorrek, an account by a German soldier chiefly on the Eastern Front).

the pix are loveley, big, clear. But they are SOOO repetitive....how many pix of uncamouflaged, plain yellow Marders do you want? Theyre all the same; a Marder comin up a street, a Marder passing the cameraman, a Marder going down the street, then another Marder comin up a street. There's only so much that one can say about scenes like this, so the captions are desperately trying to eke every nuance out of " plain yellow Marders on a street", and they get a bit repetitive too.
Theres also pix of 2cm Flak38s being towed by militarised civilian sedans. Again, how many pix of a towed flak38 do you want?
I was left feeling like I never wanted to see another plain Marder photo again.....
Just cos the photos are big and clear, do we need every pic on the photographers roll? Wheres the editor? In the quest for new images of late war german armor, RZM are using a formula to create large books filled with repetitive images. ZZzzzz...

a very good book. some of the pictures are a bit blurred but that is because the whole of reel of photos sets that were taken at the time the pk camera man was with this unit , are printed not just the most perfect ones ,which is what makes the book extra special. highly recomended
