Central to the German strategy of dealing with an Allied landing in France was the availability of a strong, mobile armoured reserve. In June 1944, as part of this force, the Army in the West was able to deploy over 300 Panther tanks, perhaps the best armoured fighting vehicle produced by Germany during the Second World War. British and American tank crews found to their horror that the Panthers could often survive numerous hits while a single round from one of their 75mm guns was enough to destroy any enemy tank. In his book, his third in the Tank Craft series, Dennis Oliver uses archive photographs and painstakingly researched, exquisitely presented colour illustrations to examine the part these powerful tanks played in the Normandy battles and also the battalions that operated them. As with previous titles in the Tank Craft series, a large part of this book showcases available model kits and aftermarket products and accessories, complemented by a gallery of skilfully constructed and painted models.

Another excellent book from Dennis Oliver. The Tank Craft series has become very popular with modellers and enthusiasts. This new addition to the range meets the criteria of excellent photographs and drawings with descriptive text and full captions – Very Highly Recommended.

Very much a modellers book that tied in so well with the details of the tank and the context of the history surrounding it. Good value and well worth adding to your reference shelf.
