Book Description

26 July 2013
One of the most feared weapons of World War II, the Tiger tank was a beast of a machine which dominated the battlefields of Europe with its astonishing size, speed and firepower. It continues to fascinate more than 70 years after it was first designed, and a comprehensive, illustrated history such as this is long overdue. Revealing its design and development history, Thomas Anderson draws upon original German archival material to tell the story of the birth of the Tiger. He then analyzes its success on the battlefield and the many modifications and variants that also came into play. Illustrated throughout with rare photographs and drawings, many of which have never been published in English before, this is a unique history of easily the most famous tank ever produced.

About the Author

A German national, Thomas Anderson is a specialist in the German Armoured Fighting Vehicle of World War II. He has spent decades trawling the archives throughout Germany and the rest of Europe to discover little known facts and never previously published photographs of the might of the Blitzkrieg. A modeller, he regularly contributes to popular modelling and historical magazines across the globe including Military Modelcraft International (UK), Steel Art (Italy), Historia Militar (Spain) and Batailles & Blindes (France) as well as many others. He has previously published a three-volume history of Sturmartillerie/Sturmgeschutz in German which is due for release in English in the next year. This is his first book for Osprey Publishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars TIGER 3 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very well written and researched book, covering all aspects of the formidable Tiger, including manufacture, production types, repair and battle history on both the Eastern and Western fronts.
If you have an interest in German armoured vehicles, do not miss this book, it's worth buying just for the many detailed and clear photographs, most of which I have never seen, despite reading numerous books on the eastern front and mechanised ww2 warfare
If you only buy one book on the Tiger, buy this one, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

Easy to read, some excellent and previously unseen to myself photos. Did not get bogged down with the aces, just concentrated on the types and variants.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the enthusiast 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Packed with lots of interesting detail. Some repetition but well worth a read. Probably better with the book as diagrams are not done justice on Kindle.
