PANTHER: PANTHER AND JAGDPANTHER UNITS VOL 1

By Dennis Oliver and Stephen Andrew

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) In the battles to hold the Eastern Front, the Panther tank was perhaps the most important weapon in the Wehrmacht’s arsenal. Desperately switched from one crisis-point to the next, the Panther battalions of the Heer, Waffen-SS and the Luftwaffe were able to blunt the Red Army’s spearheads time and again and in 1944 the Panther’s body was used to create the best known tank destroyer of the war, The Jagdpanther. In this book, the first in a series, Dennis Oliver and Stephen Andrew examine these deservedly famous tanks and their crews. Volume 1 includes Unit histories of the Army’s Panther battalions from Panzer-Regiment 1 to Panzer-Regiment 25, 13 pages of full colour artwork, detailed tables of organisation and explanation of the KstN system, black and white archive photographs and campaign maps.

T-14 ARMATA MAIN BATTLE TANK

By James Kinnear

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) The T-14 ‘Armata’ Main Battle Tank made its public debut in May 2015, at a time of renewed tensions between Russia and the United States and its NATO allies. The appearance of the T-14 was for Western observers as much a revelation as the IS-3 heavy tank that made a shock appearance in the Victory Parade in Berlin in September 1945. After years of making do with updating Soviet era tanks, the Armata is the first genuinely new post-Soviet Russian design. The T-14 is technically sophisticated and the first with a fully automated turret entirely devoid of crew as one of many new design features. However, the tank is expensive to build and maintain compared to the T-90 and T-72B3 MBTs and requires significant crew training compared with other tank types.

HISTORY OF THE PANZERJAGER: VOLUME 1 ORIGINS AND EVOLUTION 1939-1942

By Thomas Anderson

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) The German Panzerjager, or Panzerjagertruppe, was one of the most innovative fighting arms of World War II and its story has never properly been told. Many books have focused on an element of the story - the Hetzer, Jagdpanzer, Jagdpanther - but this is the first time that the whole story of the development and organization of Nazi Germany's anti-tank force will have been covered, from its earliest origins in World War I, through its development in the interwar period, and its baptism of fire in the early days of World War II. This is the first of two volumes that will trace the story through the glory years of Blitzkrieg and the improvements that were made when Soviet tanks were first encountered, leading to new weapons, tactics and organization. It is packed with previously unpublished wartime photographs, combat reports, and detailed charts and statistics to give an unparalleled account of this unique arm of the Wehrmacht.

STURMGESCHUTZ

By Thomas Anderson

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) Developed in 1940, German Sturmgeschütz assault guns were intended to support the infantry during the attack and breakthrough of enemy positions. On the Eastern Front they proved to be potent tanks destroyers, able to reliably defeat Russian T-34 and KV heavy tanks. Cheaper and quicker to produce than conventional Panzers, they were deployed widely and with great success forming an integral part of armoured units, particularly in the final desperate days of the war when tank production could not keep up with the needs of the war effort.

THE TANKS: THE HISTORY OF THE ROYAL TANK REGIMENT 1976-2017

By Charles Messenger

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) The Royal Tank Regiment celebrates its centenary in 2017. This fourth volume of the Regiment’s history begins in the midst of the Cold War, with the four RTR regiments mainly based in Germany. They experienced the implementation of General Sir Nigel Bagnall’s revolutionary new concept for the defence of the NATO Central Region. The Troubles in Northern Ireland were also at the height and the RTR served there on numerous occasions. Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait resulted in the First Gulf War, in which the Regiment played its part in many ways. Then came the horrors of the civil war in former Yugoslavia, operating tanks in Kosovo. The RTR was at the forefront of the assault on Basrah in the 2nd Gulf War and thereafter served a number of tours in Iraq. The British Army was also heavily committed to Afghanistan and the Regiment would spend the next five years deployed on Operation Herrick. As in Iraq, it carried out a variety of missions and in many different types of vehicle. (Published: 2017) (Publisher: Helion & Co.)
