Many good photographs, informative diagrams, and interesting facts. Information is organised under various headings: mobility, firepower, armour etc. There is some duplication of information under the headings, but given the complexity of the Tiger's development and roles this is fair enough.

This powerful tank was over-engineered, costly (and slow) to manufacture, and difficult to maintain. But it carried a formidable reputation in the field which is fully explored.

Anderson's writing is clear, and I found no typos. I enjoyed reading it.

A dreadful book. I read Osprey's companion book on the Panther tank (by different authors, crucially) and really enjoyed it, so I came to this with high hopes. Unfortunately, the author almost entirely avoids analysis and instead cuts and pastes reams of technical data, and dryly written contemporary German after action reports. It is stultifyingly dull stuff. A preferable approach, and one more in keeping with the historian's craft, would be leave the references to these in the footnotes, and use them to build his own analysis and narrative. He doesn't though, and one can't help but feel cheated, as though the book was just a cash grab. I strongly advise against purchasing the author's accompanying book on the Ferdinand tank destroyer. I'm giving it two stars solely for the photographs, which admittedly are excellent. Not the last word on the Tiger then.

A very well written and researched book, covering all aspects of the formidable Tiger, including manufacture, production types, repair and battle history on both the Eastern and Western fronts.
If you have an interest in German armoured vehicles, do not miss this book, it's worth buying just for the many detailed and clear photographs, most of which I have never seen, despite reading numerous books on the eastern front and mechanised ww2 warfare
If you only buy one book on the Tiger, buy this one, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

For Tiger enthusiasts this book is a treasure trove of info and photos. Many never before seen pics. 10/10 and rightly so.

this is a very well researched book.Not only does give a detailed decription of the tiger its self but it describes the effort that was reqired to keep
the tiger in the field and recover it when things went wrong.The book has lots of photos but unfortunately they dont reproduce very well on my
kindle. other than that an excellent read.

A very workmanlike book which deals with all aspects of Tigers.
A must if you want to understand Tank Warfare and how this Tank influenced all future Tanks.

lots of detail, including pictoral information, a little brief, no indication of the number of pages. Insufficient technical detail specifically about the tank itself. Still, if you're starting from a low baseline of information then there's plenty here to keep you interested.

Disappointing overall. Far too much filler material, I bought the book to find out the history of the Tank, not the organisational structure of German tank divisions and how many support halftracks they had.
