In a luxurious book (more than 200 pages!) On hard cover, Éditions Caraktère offers you a guide to the battle tanks developed by the German Army during the Second World War.
Thanks to this comprehensive book, these tanks that marked their tracks all battlefields from 1939 to 1945 will have no secrets for you.
For the first time in French, this collection is full of unpublished photos from private or official collections, precise profiles and technical information of all kinds.
From Neubaufahrzeug to Panzer VI Tiger I and II and even the Panzer VIII Maus, all versions of these mythical machines are discussed in this true reference encyclopedia. Each vehicle is carefully described with four-sided boards, a technical sheet and a synthetic text highlighting the main differences between two variants of the same Panzer.
Long introductions for each category (light, medium, heavy and super-heavy tanks) put these machines in their historical context in order to better understand the reason for their design and short analyzes take stock of their performance. Thus you will be explained the reasons for the commissioning of the formidable Panther and Tiger or the tactical contingencies that led to the development of Panzer nearly 190 tons armed with a 12.8 cm gun.
