Good informative book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: OKH Toy Factory: The Nibelungenwerk: Tank Production in St. Valentin (Hardcover)
This is a good informative text on one of the main production facilities of the German war machine during WWII.
The book is an obvious labour of love for the author and this clearly comes across in the text which is supported by some clear and interesting period photos.
I was expecting more specific information about the vehicles produced at the factory and was hoping to find information which might plug a few holes in my understanding of the Panzer IV range of vehicles predominantly produced there.
To be fair the book is what it says it is, a detailed and well written account of the factory including the political and logistical dilemmas in conjunction with a deteriorating reality of war and impending defeat.
The book also gives a brief yet detailed insight and understanding of the post war events which shaped the factory's present situation.
Overal a very interesting and enjoyable book for which the author should be deservedly proud.
