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.

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.
