I found this book very informative on the subject. More information on the weapons system - and total effective range of engagement were my only points of criticism.

This is the third Carruthers book I have read and while it shares some of the elements of the other two (Panzers At War 1939 - 1942 (Hitler's War Machine) and Panzers At War 1943 - 1945 (Hitler's War Machine)) such as the very high level overview, it seems sadly to be a much more rushed effort, which I find difficult to recommend for anyone.

Most of the material is from the Pantherfibel, the instructional manual for the troops operating it, which while made in a comic like style, is quite a useful source. Starting the book with a chapter on this, together with the description of the earlier Tigerfibel was a good move - it was certainly one of the better and more interesting parts, even if it had little to do with the vehicle itself.

Th other chapters go into the re-construction programme of the early prototypes, the further development process, the production, combat (which somehow only covers the Eastern Front), Combat in France (as a separate chapter), Combat in the Ardennes, and lastly building the Panther (covering mostly the same area as the production chapter but also for some reason goes into the design response of the British, Americans and Russians to the Panther and lastly the design characteristics and further versions).

A virtual rewrite of the operating manual, this book repeats itself throughout. Put me in mind of a History Channel documentary in its constant need to remind you of what you have already written. Uses few original sources although there are points of interest. Not bad as an introduction to the Panther, but not the in-depth production one might expect from a model-specific publication.

A great book with so much important information and interesting detail. Not only does this enable you to understand so much about the machine itself but throws so much light on the workings of the German system and thinking. In turn one can see how decisions and performance affected the war effort.
