This new title from German publisher Luftfahrt Verlag will showcase for the first time ever, roughly 180 wartime black + white and 30 RARE color photos of Heavy Tiger Tank Battalion 508.  None of these images have ever been published before. Since the end of World War II the photos have remained in the private hands of the German veteran who took them during his time with this famed Tiger tank battalion.

Since he was the official unit photographer from 1942 when the unit first fought in Africa as Panzer Regiment 8, and then later when it was reformed  into Heavy Tank Battalion 508 which fought primarily in Italy against the Allies.

The photos are really amazing and they show glimpses into the daily life of a panzer crewmen.  There are some really incredible photos showingTiger tanks and support equipment serving at the front lines.  All the images have been scanned from the original negatives for optimum quality. The black and white photos  alone would make this book a must have, however it's the amazing super clear color photos taken in Italy  of the Tiger tanks that will be sure to impress even the most jaded Tiger enthusiast who thinks he's seen it all.

Hardcover, 200 pages, 180 B+W and 35 wartime color photos, English & German text

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
