Overview

This new book by Frank De Sisto can be considered a bonus from Concord Publications! As explained in the preface, when the first volume on German Half-tracks (No. 7054) was released there was no intention to produce a follow-up book. However, with the unearthing of new photos, the result is this second compendium on the interesting topic of German half-tracked vehicles in WWII.

The book is a highly useful collection of black and white photos, beginning with coverage of the diminutive Sd.Kfz.2 Kettenkraftrad, and moving on to bigger vehicles such as the Sd.Kfz.10 D7, 3-ton Sd.Kfz.11, 5-ton Sd.Kfz.6, 8-ton Sd.Kfz.7, 12-ton Sd.Kfz.8 and 18-ton Sd.Kfz.9. It should be noted that armoured halftracks like the Sd.Kfz.250 and Sd.Kfz.251 that appeared in the original volume are not covered again here. Nevertheless, these aforementioned halftracks are extremely well represented, with photos showing them in all kinds of theaters and periods of the war. Many of the pictured vehicles are towing an array of trailers and artillery pieces that are sure to inspire many a diorama by modellers. Each photo is aided by a detailed caption that identifies key features and characteristics of the vehicle type. The book opens with a useful summary of each type of halftrack featured inside.

In usual style for the series, the book also features 16 colour plates prepared by Laurent Lecocq. These plates provide the perfect opportunity to highlight camouflage paint schemes and vehicle/tactical markings. The combination of a knowledgeable author and atmospheric wartime photographs represents an inspiring book for any interested in the wide-ranging topic of German halftracks.
