    The Sturmartillerie came about due to the efforts of celebrated German commander Erich von Manstein, with this new branch designed to support infantry assaults with self-propelled vehicles. It was distinct from the panzers as it was designed to work closely with the infantry.

    To fulfill this vision, a whole new series of vehicles was designed. The first and most common numerically was the Sturmgeschutz III. Later, other vehicle types such as the StuG IV were added to... Learn More

    • A richly illustrated book on the Vikings and their civilisation
