A formidable tank, but over-engineered.
on 21 September 2014
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.
