4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but good, 17 Dec. 2010

This book is dated now but if you can get it for under £25 I think it is worth buying.

There are some nice photos and most of the information is still relavent for most readers.

The book is worth anything up to £25.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Excellent, Excellent., 17 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My hobby is model building and German armour, I have over a hundred books on the subject and rate this as one of the best.

If you like the Heimdal, Fedorowics, panzerwrecks and Panzer tracs books you will love this.

It is full of excellent photos most of which I have never seen before and the read is "just special".

If I could have given it ten stars I would have, buy the book you will not be disapointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, 17 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good book, the only reason I have given it four stars is the majority of photos are on the small size and some are very common photos.

Overall the book is good and well worth getting if you are interested in the subject, all types of halftrack are covered.

You should also buy the companion volume.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair book not without problems., 17 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fair book, the drawings are well presented and dimensionally accurate, the problem is with the detail.

As with many books by this author the detail is sometimes not accurate, one clear example in this book is a Panzer IV drawn with both early and late towing mounts.

Other details are again poorly researched with known details missing and others wrongly presented.

The art work is nice, although some period photos to back them up would have been nice.

Three stars is a fair score, the author needs to improve the quality of detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 17 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book and its companion volume are two of the best photographic references on German artillery used during WWII you could possibly find, I know because I have most of the books on the subject.

The book has some excellent photos some of which I had not seen before especially on the 17 and 21cm K18 guns.

If you are interested in the subject buy the books you will not be disappointed.

Excellent photo reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Churchill Heaven, 7 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best single ref on the Churchill gun tanks.

Beware it doesn't cover any of the specialist vehicles, you will be surprised by the journey this tank travelled through the turning point of British tank design and how well recieved and thought of the tank was regardless of its limitations.
