Overview
-

• A fine companion to the previous four books in the Panzer Vor! series, including new photographs covering the period from 1939-1945

Continuing the author's series of books on German armoured vehicles, Panzer Vor! 5 contains many fascinating new photographs. Frank De Sisto combines his deep understanding of German vehicles and tactics with these photographs to produce a comprehensive volume covering World War II.

The book begins with a summary of the highly effective"Panzertaktiks” and tactical organisations that Germany developed prior to the war, involving combined all-arms co-operation, as well as components like reconnaissance, combat engineers, artillery and air support. The written introduction also summarises the important elements of German command, control and logistics. The work then proceeds to a dazzling array of black and white photos of the vehicles in action, including the Sd.Kfz.222, Sd.Kfz.231, Sd.Kfz.232, Sd.Kfz.234, Hetzer, Panzer I, Panzer II, Panzer III, StuG III, Panzer IV, Jagdpanzer IV, Panther, Jagdpanther, Tiger I and Elefant. This list is not exhaustive but it does indicate the extraordinary range of vehicle types featured in these pages. Each photo is accompanied by a detailed caption providing pertinent information regarding vehicle types, units and locations.

In the centre of the book are 16 colour plates by the accomplished illustrator Laurent Lecocq. These plates provide sample camouflage schemes and markings in full colour.

This is a well-written and well-illustrated book that will provide modellers and enthusiasts with inspiration and information, and is a fine companion to the four previous volumes in the Panzer Vor! series.

REVIEWS

This is another good title to extend the series of Panzer Vor titles in the Concord list to it's fifth volume and I am sure will prove popular.
