• The first volume in a two part series on the assault artillery of the German Army in World War II

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 the ranks.

Initially planned for a single volume, this encyclopaedic work of Didier Laugier, highly detailed and superbly illustrated, is finally published in two volumes.

This first volume presents the development of assault guns, their production, models (with sixteen pages of colour profiles), armament, equipment and the history of most assault gun groups and brigades.

This is the first major work on this subject presented in a hardback book of 400 pages with over a thousand photos and documents.

REVIEWS

It is undoubtedly a stunning reference work on the wartime German Sturmartillerie and is packed with superb photos and illustrations that graphically illustrate the production, armament, equipment and use of these weapons during the war.
Military Machines International

The book contains a staggering amount of information and is illustrated heavily with wartime photographs, illustrations and diagrams, wartime paperwork and maps and a dozen pages or so of full colour profiles.
