Combining the destructive firepower of the 88mm gun with the outstanding mobility of the Panther series, the Jagdpanther is quite probably the best-known tank destroyer of the Second World War. In the vehicle's first action on 30 July 1944, three Jagdpanthers managed to destroy eleven British tanks in a vicious two minute firefight near the village of Les Loges in Normandy, cementing the Jagdpanther's reputation as a potent tank killer. In his fifth book in the TankCraft series, Dennis Oliver uses contemporary photographs and meticulously researched, superbly presented colour and monochrome illustrations to tell the story of these heavy self-propelled anti-tank guns and the units which operated them in the German defence of the Western Front. As with all the books in the TankCraft series, a large part of this work showcases available model kits and aftermarket products, complemented by a gallery of expertly constructed and painted models. Technical details as well as modifications introduced during production and in the field are also explained giving the modeller all the information and knowledge required.

Pros: Really interesting concept to combine historical, technical and modeling content in one book. Nicely illustrated. Good selection of paint schemes tied to specific units and periods; good kit and accessory reviews; good, brief unit histories.

Highly Recommended for Beginner to Intermediate builders.

Verdict: An exhaustive study which will definitely help the modeler achieve true scale and realism in their work, while also imparting some interesting history.

Classic Military Vehicle, June 2018

I love it. An interesting book with a varied number of contents aimed at fans in general and the model of battle tanks in particular.

I already wrote about one book in this series, Sherman Tanks (Tankcraft #2), and now have read a few more, both in paper and in eBook versions. The more I leaf through them, the more enthusiastic I get. These are real gems for both scale modelers and those of us interested in the technical aspects of these tanks.

Another useful addition to the Tankcraft series from Dennis Oliver and an ideal modellers reference.

Military Model Scene - Robin Buckland

This popular series is aimed primarily at model makers and engineers but it contains first class illustration and a very effective text overview of the Jagdpanther. This new book covers the development, on the Panther chassis, of a very effective tank destroyer – Highly Recommended.
