Tigers in Combat, Vol. 2

Tigers in Combat, Vol. 2

Hundreds of photos many of them rare of Tiger tanks and their crews Color illustrations by Jean Restayn focus on markings, camouflage, and insignia Inventories and timelines for each unit In this follow-up to Tigers in Combat I (0-8117-3171-5), Wolfgang Schneider turns his attention to the Tiger tanks of the Waffen-SS and the Wehrmacht's "named" units, such as the Gro deutschland Division, Company Hummel, and Tiger Group Meyer. Based on combat diaries, the text tells the history of each unit, but most of the book is devoted to photos of the tanks and the men who manned them. It offers as unique and comprehensive a look at these lethal machines as is possible sixty years after World War II."
