I found "Knights of the Black Cross" to be an excellent history of the Panzer (armoured) arm of the German Wehrmacht from its creation up to the end of World War II. As well as providing a really great overview of the equipment, strategy and leaders of the Panzerwaffe, it gives well-researched, detailed examples of how the Panzerwaffe fought and analyses German armoured doctrine in detail. It gives a good picture of how the war impacted on production and logistics for the Panzerwaffe, and served to remind me of how shaky Germany's armoured performance was during the war. I'd strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in World War II. It's clearly-written enough to be highly useful to the amateur historian, yet detailed and analytical enough to provide a great source to a full-time student of military history. Five stars.
