Hitler's Light Panzers at War is a highly illustrated record of the German light tank from its beginnings in the 1930s to the key battles it fought in Poland, France, North Africa, Russia and North Western Europe. The book analyses the development of the light Panzer, which ranged from the Panzer I, II and the Czech build Panzer 35 & 38t. It describes how the Germans carefully utilized the development of these light machines for war, and depicts how these tanks were adapted and up-gunned to face the ever-increasing enemy threat.

Using 250 rare and unpublished photographs together with detailed captions and accompanying text, Hitler's Light Panzers At War provides a unique insight into the many variants that saw action on the battlefield. It provides a vivid account of light Panzer operational deployment from the early Blitzkrieg campaigns to the final demise of the Nazi war machine.

This photo essay produces a very effective picture of the light tanks that formed the backbone of the German armoured units at the start of WWII. Highly recommended.

I always find this series of coffee table books an absolute pleasure to read and this edition is no different in that fact standing effortlessly along side all its other predecessors... Packed full of fascinatingly rare, unpublished and often candid archival photographs... Whether your a keen scale modeller looking for those fine details or a historian with a firm interest in the development of light Panzers, this book will provide many enlightening details with captions along side each photograph placing precisely the context in which the photograph was taken giving greater understanding and depth to each picture.

Großdeutschland Aufklärung

This new title in the Images of War series by Paul Thomas covers the title subject rather well. It is split into 4 sections, covering Development and Training; Blitzkrieg; Barbarossa; and Last Years on the Eastern Front 1942-43. Each section is introduced with 2 or 3 pages of introductory text and then filled with an excellenet selection of photos to illustrate each one. With over 250 archive photos, most of which I had not seen before, there is a really useful coverage of the specific topic of the Light Panzers. The book is rounded off with Appendices on three topics - Panzer Variants; Armoured Crew Uniforms; and Camouflage.
