German Armour Losses on the Western… ePub (27.1 MB) Add to Basket £4.99

The German armoured forces lost some 10,000 armoured fighting vehicles. Today there are very few surviving vehicles from the Wehrmacht. We are fortunate therefore that these unique photographs detail the fate of the Panzers destroyed in action in the west.

If you are looking for panzer wrecks then these two books will be up you alley. There is a good variety of vehicles in each book so there should be something for everyone.

In Scale Blog, Scott Danis

This is a 144 page compilation of photographs of WW2 German tanks after they were “knocked out of action” on the western front. The photographs are large, one or two per page, black and white, and displaying various states of destruction of the tanks. The surrounding destruction of buildings and dead bodies attests to the recent fighting, and authenticity of the scenes.

Each picture is captioned, and there is a brief but informative history introduction.

While horrifying, the pictures are riveting. I imagine that they will be of great interest to modelers, war historians and students, and those with a particular passion for tanks. What happened to the crews of the tanks depicted does not bear thinking about.

Dr John Viggers

An indispensable source of knowledge for researchers and historians, for the modeller specializing in the construction at scale of combat vehicles, vignettes or dioramas, and for the amateur in general.

José Manuél Rico Cortés (Mister JM) - Miniaturas JM

A marvellous collection of over 200 photographs of German armoured vehicles knocked out from 1944 onwards, from the Normandy beaches and Italy to the borders of the Reich. Almost all of the vehicles featured are those built around the Panzer III to VI chassis, including self-propelled guns and many specific variants of tanks. These are shown in different locations, in shattered streets or muddy and snow covered fields, and in a range of states of disrepair; overturned, tipped on their side to clear the road, with broken tracks, turrets blown off, or simply blown apart. With this broad array of vehicles and situations, this book will certainly be an invaluable guide to the modeller, but it also serves as a reminder of the devastating impact of armour piercing weapons, and the vulnerability of tank crews in their seemingly impervious machines.

Pegasus Archive, Mark Hickman

I have always been an enthusiast of wrecked vehicles. Being a modeler of knocked out, burnt and abandoned vehicles, I am instantly drawn to anything on the subject. There are a number of photographs included in this book that I have seen before in publications and online, but overall, the collection, which has been taken from wartime archives give an amazing glimpse into the destructive nature of war and the intricate details to knocked out armour on the field of battle...

German Armour Lost On The Western Front is an excellent pictograph reference book covering German losses during the Second World War. The pictures are clear and the supporting text provided, factual. I highly recommend this book to any historical buffs or modeling fans who are interested in wrecked and abandoned vehicles.

MSC Review Connect, Todd Michalak

A fine illustration of the vulnerabilities of the tank in the last half of WW2 which holds lots for anyone with an interest in the evolution of the tank in battle.
