Overview
-

By far the most famous tank commander on any side in World War II, German Tiger ace Michael Wittmann destroyed 138 enemy tanks and 132 anti-tank guns in a career that embodies the panzer legend: meticulous in planning, lethal in execution, and always cool under fire. Most of those kills came in the snow and mud of the Eastern Front, where Wittmann and the Leibstandarte's armored company spent more than a year in 1943-44 battling the Soviets at places like Kharkov, Kursk, and the Cherkassy Pocket.
