packed with information and photos
on 8 January 2015
sorry I cant agree with the reviewer who gave it 1 star, yes some of the photos are a bit rough but what do you expect after nearly 70 years plus they probably were not very good to start with.
this is an excellent book and rates as highly as his other 2 books. tigers in combat vol1 and 2. all the information concerning the schwere tiger company's in Normandy is there, tank identification numbers, unit number, what action each tank participated in if any,
and what happened to every tiger in Normandy.
throughout the book there are first hand accounts from survivors of both sides and in some instances German and allied views of the same battle.
the account of what happened to Michael whittmans tiger makes very interesting reading as does Schneider's view about whittmanns award of the knights cross for his actions against the British.
I must say I can see his point.
this is a book I should have bought some time ago, especially as I own the two volumes of tigers in combat.
if you are interested tigers and what happened in Normandy leading up to the collapse at falaise, then buy it, if you just want to know what it was like in a German tank in Normandy, then buy it.
ignore the above and just buy this book you wont be disappointed.
