Originally published on my reading blog. Of interest to those on the MoB list.
For the modeller and historian this book will provide great appeal. However, there are some issues with the photos and captions in the book that left me often perplexed and sometimes stumped.
That aside though, there is a wealth of detail for the modeller especially with highly detailed photos of this particular WW2 panzer.
The history of its development, deployment and upgrade, including timelines for upgrades and changes, make this a worthwhile purchase to those interested specifically in modelling the tank. The history included covers the political and army maneuverings as well as the industrial angle of the development.
In all a thoroughly interesting and highly readable, accessible and useful book.
