Overview
-

The first volume of Sturmgeschutz III put the weapon in its historical context and supports information about production and combat of the Stug III. Volume II will provide information for identification of variants and their production months. Both volumes together will give readers a full survey of the technical development of the German Assault Guns and Assault Howitzers.

This second volume enables the reader:
- to identify the date of photographs
- to restore vehicles to working conditions
- to build exact models

The necessary information is structured in 90 externally visual characteristics - all illustrated by photographs - chronologically listed. In addition, troop modifications are also covered. Importantly, there are numerous photographs, nearly 550, of all variants, placed in chronological order as accepted by the Armament Office. 4-side-drawings in modeller scale 1:35 of all variants, Ausf G shown in quarterly steps, round up the tables and photographs.

The drawings may be acquired in other scales via HistoryFacts. The book supplement, a poster of 135 x 75 cm, presents all 90 characteristics in a tabulated overview.
