The Panzer III was designed to be the backbone of the Panzer force and was deployed on every front. However, due to its deficient armament and poor armor, and despite its outstanding reliability, it was obsolete by 1942.
Emmy Award winning historian Bob Carruthers compiled this comprehensive overview of the Panzer III in action. It draws heavily on wartime intelligence reports to produce a fascinating insight into the development and combat history of the Panzer III at the tactical and operational level.
Also featured are rare developments such as the flamethrower variant alongside unpublished photographs and illustrations, which provide an absorbing study, from an array of primary sources, of the world of the Panzer III and its crews, which conveys to the modern reader a vivid sense of how they were viewed at the time.
