4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Overview of German Tanks 30 Jan. 2002
By Gerald P. Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Thomas Jentz and Hilary Louis Doyle are two of the foremost experts on German armor of the Second World War, and this volume is a concise catalog of the machines, with good clear photographs supplemented by Doyle's drawings. It is a welcome offering, since there are several dreadful titles out now which cash in on the current revival of interest in World War Two, but are thrown together by hack writers using secondary sources. Jentz and Doyle use only original documents and surviving vehicles as references, and they do not allow the myths and half-truths which have arisen over the last half-century to cloud the issues. In a sense, this book compiles much of the technical information of their self-published book series, Panzer Tracts, but the drawings are limited to one side-view, and not to a constant scale, whereas the Panzer Tracts drawings are nearly all to 1/35th scale, and show four views. Curiously, the book devotes a half page on each vehicle to drawings showing the angle of approach and the angle of departure for each tank (that is, how steep a slope it can safely descend or climb), and the depth of water it could ford. Personally, I would rather derive this information from the text, and see the free space devoted to additional plan views of the vehicle. While this book is useful for recognizing the basic tank types and most subtypes, it is not adequate to construct a scale model of one with complete confidence, so their other books are still a necessity for the modeller. If you already have their other books, you can probably give this one a pass, but if you are looking for a starter volume on German tanks, this is good place to start.
