AFV PHOTO ALBUM VOL. 3

By Marek Solar and Petr Dolezal

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) In this third AFV Photo Album book, the authors focus on Panther tanks in Czechoslovakia. A considerable number of these legendary tanks were photographed during the last months of the war and after the cessation of hostilities. Marek Solar and Petr Dolezal have meticulously documented and identified the various versions, assembly plants and the combat units in which they eventually served. Detailed captions accompany the photos, many of them previously unpublished, and several of which are also recreated as colour profiles, acting as an excellent source of guidance and inspiration for modellers. English/Czech text.

THE TANK

By Douglas Orgill

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) The author shows how the tank's battlefield shrank under the contracting influence of new weapons and airpower. From it's introduction in 1916, he looks at the mistakes of Cambrai, the battle of Hamel, German experiments with armour at the secret Russo-German base on the Volga, and on to World War Two with such tank exponents as Guderian and Rommel, and legendary tank actions such as Kursk and the Falaise Gap.

PANZERS EAST AND WEST

By Dieter Stenger

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) Organized during 1943, 10th SS Panzer Division saw its first action in the spring of 1944 during the attempt to relieve an encircled German army on the Eastern Front. Several months later they were ordered west to Normandy, where by mid-June 1944 German defenses against the Allied offensive were crumbling. Here the division engaged in a series of armored ounterattacks against British and American forces. The 10th SS gradually had to fall back to Falaise, where the division escaped the Allied encirclement with no tanks and only a fraction of its men. They next defended against the Allied airborne assault during Operation Market Garden in September 1944, fought in Alsace before returning to the Eastern Front. There, east of Berlin, the division participated in the final, futile battles against the Red Army before escaping to Czechoslovakia to surrender to the U.S. Army.

GERMAN ARMOURED FORMATIONS IN THE OZAK 1943-45

By Stefano Di Giusto

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) In World War II, aside from the battlefields in the West, the Eastern Front and in North Africa, there was another small area where the Panzers ruled: the OZAK (Operations Area Adriatic Coastland), a large area which included the north-eastern border regions of Italy and parts of present-day Slovenia and Croatia. What makes this area so unique are the German armoured formations deployed there with an exceptional range of strange vehicles, which could be found nowhere else on any other frontline of World War Two. This publication looks at this exciting area of Wehrmacht Panzer history. Anglo German text and captions.
