In keeping with the emphasis on speed and mobility, the German Armed Forces in World War II were supplied with a dazzling array of fighting vehicles capable of performing almost every battlefield function. There were excellent tanks like the Panzer III, Panzer IV, Panther and Tiger, ably supported by a range of self-propelled anti-tank guns, infantry-support guns and heavy artillery. For the infantry there were armoured cars and half-tracks. This book tells the story of these important war machines, from the secret training vehicles of the Weimar period to the heaviest self-propelled guns of World War II. It includes numerous photographs and illustrations, several in colour.
