Format: Hardcover
This is not the book I hoped for, there is a ton of material missing. It has been re-written and expanded. The script in the book was actually the first draft and not the third which was submitted. I have visited the battlefields in Hungary and Austria, I've used the Russian and German archives and interviewed Veterans, I have over 7 hours of recorded interviews. A lot of archival documents were not put in the book as well.

To say this is a copy of the other guys work I think is a slight and a mlid insult to be honest, other wise I award this book one star.

This book is well written, with a great many photographs that I have not seen before. The text enhances the photographs and gives them true context.
If you have an interest in any aspect of Panzer warfare then I can recommend this book to you.

Yet another publish date comes and goes. Publishers............only publicise a product when you reach a point that you KNOW you can release it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is it worth buying? Absolutely. 3 Dec. 2015
By Keith Bickel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I like it. Is it perfect? No. The maps are on the small side for my eyes, there are a small number of miscaptioned photos, some of the photos are very poor & while they are certainly unpublished dont add all that much to the book.

Is it worth buying? Absolutely. Lots of diary entries from them that was there. While maybe not 100% correct, they still give insight into the events as they happened. The good number of decent or better new photos are worth the price alone.

Not having seen JJF's TK Tigers book yet, at 3 or 4 times the price I may not bother.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Potentila needs Rewrite 6 Jan. 2014
By GioacchinoChiant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was hoping for detailed history of the Tiger Company of Nazi Germany's notorious “Death's Head: SS Totenkopf Division's Tiger CompanyHead”, that would enhance my library. What I received was a bunch of recollection from veterans with a rambling fashion structured. I agree with a previous review that the “author makes no attempt to give background or perspective to the stories”, also the maps provided are too small to be of any use. This book needs to be rewritten and the above corrections be made before I would recommend this to a reader with or without knowledge of this period. It is just a bunch of raw data that needs more perspective, in its current form it’s not worth investing in the book format, or kindle. This is regrettable since the book has good potential, if it improved in a rewrite.

Very well done, lots of TK panzer photos and good information on this very elite formation that went into battle young and inexperienced, yet won glory in battle after battle.
