We are proud to present this study of various German tanks and vehicles of World War II. All major tanks and armored support vehicles are presented, from the Panzer I to the King Tiger, along with assault guns, self propelled artillery, halftracks and armored cars. Additionally, many of the tanks and support vehicles modified for Operation Sea Lion are shown during testing or later use during the war. Rare vehicles such as the Landwasserschlepper, anti-aircraft barges, Sturmpioner boats and the Stuka zu Fuß are included too. The photos illustrate many field modifications to an assortment of vehicles together with interesting and innovative uses of such vehicles. The photos are excellent quality and almost all of them are previously unpublished. Many are presented full-page. As an interesting extra the author has included an extensive section on the Küstenjäger (the German equivalent of marine commandos). As part of the Brandenburgers, the Küstenjäger took part in many landings in the Aegean ad the Mediterranean. A brief (15) but very interesting diary of their operations is included in the text portion of the book. Also included is a 16 page color section highlighting many of the vehicles seen in the photos. This title is a must for any modeler or photo enthusiast.
