This book is similar in style to the popular New Vangaurd series and will be just as useful to modellers and enthusiasts. It covers the design, development, production and technical features of the Panther and Bergpanther. The Jagdpanther only gets cursory mention because the publishers are saving it for another book. There are several colour pages devoted to markings and insignia. There are some drawings and lots of photographs, all of which are reasonably large. The vehicle interior is especially well documented.

Format: Paperback
This is the worst book on the Panther I have ever read. Actually I do believe that its the worst book ever written on the subject.
First - the book is full of errors: Panther A's are referred to as Gs or Ds and visa versa.
Its not that every pages has some kind of error - but its bloody close!
Many of the pics are of a rather bad condition (other publications proove that much better photos are available)- a lot of pictures show destroyed panthers in destroyed factories or interiors in destroyed vehicles. A too large part of the pages are used for rarities as US M10 tank destroyer panther/mock up and the use of Panther turrets in static defenses.
The space could have been used for pictures of panthers in action (of wich there are almost none).
The book looks to me as if it was done halfhearted using a scrap together of pictures and drawings - instead of good research.
There are many good books on the Panther tank - so buy one of theese instead.
The form here forces me to give one star - but don't think that I mean to give one!

An Excellent Reference For Your Workbench 7 Aug. 2005
By Penelope Heathcliff Barnaby - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you build scale models of tanks, this series of books is for you. Dimensionally small enough to fit on your workbench without taking up much space, but packed to the gills with lots of great information.

This book covers the best tank of WW2, the Panzer V Panther (hey, no booing from the T-34 crowd!). As always, Jonathan Forty's text is concise, easy to read and absorb. The photos are spectacular. I thought that the Panther was pretty well covered in photos by now, but there were still some pictures in this book that I had never seen before.

We're also treated to many wonderful line drawings that are crisp and easy to discern. Color illustrations depicting camo patterns, identification, etc. is also included. There are plenty of interior photos, engine details, and gun as well as photos of a Panther factory.

There is even a discussion and photos of the "Ersatz M10". This was a conversion performed on some Panthers to make them look like the US M10 tank destroyer so they could slip behind enemy lines as "friendlies" and wreak havoc.

All in all, a great book from a great series of books. Note that this only covers the standard turret versions of the Panther. If you're looking for coverage of the Jagdpanther, you'll have to look into the Tanks In Detail book on Jagdpanzers.
