Summary

Summary

A fascinating pictorial record of Germany's armored forces before and during WWII, from the early days of the Panzer arm beginning in 1935, to the spectacular Blitzkrieg campaigns of 1939-41. Included are images of secret tank training in the 1930s, photos taken by tank crew members on active service including tank battles, plus an authoritative text. The dramatic rise and fall of the Panzers is told through 250 photographs, many of which have never-before been published.
