High-quality photographs on semi-matte art paper. Visual diary of Hitler's elite force. Presented in chronological sequence This sixth volume follows soldiers of the 1st SS LAH and 2nd SS Das Reich Panzer Division in combat during the Battle of Kursk, July 1943. Formed by Heinrich Himmler in 1940 from the Leibstandarte, SS Verfungstruppe and the Totenkopfe Standarten, the Waffen-SS was originally meant to be a racially pure organisation, but this idea was abandoned due to the need for more troops. While initially intended to concentrate on internal matters that threatened Germany, the Waffen-SS mainly served as frontline combat troops alongside the regular German army. They were considered the elite of the German armed forces in World War II and were involved in almost continuous combat. Printed on deluxe European semi-matte art paper for unparalleled photographic reproduction, each page literally pulls you into the images, making you feel as though you are a part of the action. This documentary-style series presents the photographs in the actual sequence in which they were taken, creating a visual diary unlike anything previously published on the subject.

Axis Tanks of the Second World War

The German Army used tanks to devastating effect in their Blitzkrieg campaigns during the early years of the Second World War and in the intense defensive battles leading up to final defeat in 1945. It may be a surprise to many that the Japanese Army had more tanks than Nazi Germany in 1938; these included the Type 95 light tank and the Type 89 and 97 medium tanks. Co-belligerents in the Axis Alliance that built their own tanks included Italy, Romania and Hungary. The latter was responsible for the Toldi and Turan light tank series. As can be seen from the descriptions and images in this classic Images of War series work, the Axis powers had drawn on British and, in some cases, French design for their tanks in the period leading up to the Second World War: the Carden-Loyd tankette suspension was used in the Panzer 1 series and the light Italian and Japanese tanks. German engineering talent resulted in the original and ingenious designs of the Panzer II, III and IV series and, later in the War, the Panther Medium and Tiger heavy tanks. This latest work by author and expert Mike Green will fascinate and inform historians, engineers and war gamers.

Illustrated color reference guide to the Pz.Kpfw. VI Tiger Tiger I is the common name of a German heavy tank developed in 1942 and used in World War II. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E, often shortened to Tiger. It was an answer to the unexpectedly formidable Soviet armor encountered in the initial months of the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union, particularly the T-34 and the KV-1. The Tiger I design gave the Wehrmacht its first tank mounting the 88 mm gun, in its initial armored fighting vehicle-dedicated version, which in its Flak version had previously demonstrated its effectiveness against both air and ground targets. During the course of the war, the Tiger I saw combat on all German battlefronts. It was usually deployed in independent tank battalions, which proved to be quite formidable. While the Tiger I was feared by many of its opponents, it was over-engineered, used expensive and labor intensive materials and production methods, and was time-consuming to produce. Only 1,347 were built between August 1942 and August 1944. The Tiger was prone to certain types of track failures and immobilizations, and limited in range by its huge fuel consumption. It was, however, generally mechanically reliable but expensive to maintain. It was also complicated to transport, and vulnerable to immobilization when mud, ice and snow froze between its overlapping and interleaved road wheels in winter weather conditions, often jamming them solid. In 1944, production was phased out in favor of the Tiger II. A big decal sheet with 1:72, 1:48 and 1:35 individual and national markings for 16 Pz.Kpfw. VI Tiger tanks. The decal sheet was printed by Cartograf. Each painting scheme is depicted on beautifully drawn color profile and described in the guidebook with English and Polish text.

The Panzer IV

Hitler's Rock
Author: Anthony Tucker-Jones
Publisher: N.A
ISBN: 1473856760
Category: History
Page: 128

The Panzerkampfwagen Mk IV proved to be the one constant in Hitler's Panzerwaffe throughout the Second World War - the German equivalent of the American Sherman and the Soviet T-34\. In this companion volume to his best-selling visual histories of the Tiger and Panther tanks, Anthony Tucker-Jones provides a concise account of the Mk IV's design, development and performance in combat. The Mk IV served on every major front, in France, the Balkans, North Africa, the Soviet Union and, at the end of the war, in Germany itself - it was a key weapon in the blitzkrieg attacks launched early in the war and in the later desperate defense of the Reich. Using over 150 rare wartime photographs, plus a selection of specially commissioned color, he describes how the initial design of the Mk IV was modified and refined throughout the course of the conflict to counter the threats posed by ever more formidable Allied tanks and antitank guns on the battlefield. While the Mk IV was never produced in the same numbers as the leading Allied tanks, it was without doubt one of the principal armored vehicles of the Second World War, and Anthony Tucker-Jones's highly illustrated history is the ideal introduction to it.

Armoured Warfare and the Waffen-SS 1944-1945

Rare Photographs from Wartime Archives
Author: Anthony Tucker-Jones
Publisher: Pen & Sword Archaeology
ISBN: 1473877962
Category: History
Page: 128

Over 150 wartime photographs give a graphic snapshot of the dramatic tank battles fought by the Waffen-SS panzer and panzergrenadier divisions during 1944-5 on both the Eastern and Western fronts. By this stage of the Second World War these formations were at the height of their powers and took part in major armoured operations in Russia, France, the Netherlands, and Poland. As the Wehrmacht retreated the Waffen-SS played an increasingly important role. Most notably their panzers prolonged the war by staving off defeat at Arnhem and Wolomin, stabilizing both the Western and Eastern fronts at critical points in the fighting. The photographs and the accompanying narrative record the contrasting conditions they faced on each battlefront and the weapons and equipment they used, especially the armored vehicles, including the Tiger and Panther tanks, which were among the best designs the Germans produced. But they also record the crimes committed by members of the Waffen-SS against civilians and captured enemy soldiers during the series of brutal, often desperate operations mounted to stave off German defeat. Anthony Tucker-Jones's photographic history is a fascinating introduction to these elite units during the final phase of the fighting in Europe.
