"Tank units should move at night, and in the daytime they should move only when they can be hidden from enemy airplanes." 'Tactical Handbook for the Troop Commander' This fascinating compilation of wartime battlefield reports drawn from British, American, Russian and German sources has been carefully selected by Emmy Award winning author and historian Bob Carruthers to produce an absorbing overview of the life and death of Germany's Panzer forces as the events unfolded during World War II. Featured topics include the Tiger, Panther, flame throwing tanks, experimental vehicles, tank tactics, mobile artillery, assault guns and more. Combining contemporary reports featuring a wide range of topics concerning Panzers in the field, this excellent survey of sources builds into an absorbing account of what the Allies considered to be the most important information concerning the Panzers on the battlefield. Drawn exclusively from original wartime reports, this new compilation is essential reading for anyone interested in discovering rare and vital information on the combat experience of the Panzers drawn exclusively from primary sources.
