Tank Craft 10: Tiger I Paperback Add to Basket £14.99

When at Hitler’s insistence the first Tiger I tanks went into action in Tunisia in December 1942 they rapidly gained a formidable fighting reputation despite their lack of reliability and the small number deployed. With its heavy armour and 88mm gun, it outclassed all the Allied tanks then in service and forced the Allies to accelerate the introduction of improved anti-tank guns and tanks that could match the Tiger in terms of firepower and protection.

In this, his second volume in the TankCraft series on the Tiger, Dennis Oliver uses archive photos and extensively researched colour illustrations to examine the Tiger tanks and German army units that first took them into combat in North Africa and then operated them as they fell back through Sicily and Italy between 1943 and 1945.

A large part of the book showcases available model kits and aftermarket products, complemented by a gallery of beautifully constructed and painted models in various scales. Technical details as well as modifications introduced during production and in the field are also examined providing everything the modeller needs to recreate an accurate representation of the tanks that made such an immediate impact on the southern front during the Second World War.

The Tiger I is, and always has been, a favourite for military vehicle modellers. If you are one of these modellers, this book will be an invaluable addition to your reference library.

With it’s clear and informative campaign timeline, colour illustrations and showcase models, with aftermarket products. It’s also inspirational for your next Tiger build.

Vintage Airfix

Hardcore students of the Tiger I probably won't find too much that is new here, but the combination of excellent photographs and profiles and much well-researched information makes this an affordable and welcome addition to the library of anyone interested in the German armed forces of World War II. Highly recommended.

Dennis Oliver has garnered a place with me as a firm favourite due to his writing style and how information is presented to the reader. The Tiger I being such a popular vehicle it does deserve to get some dedicated attention rather than with the King Tiger in tow. The details presented are a pleasing mix.

A Question Of Scale, Seb Palmer

I really enjoy the collection of photos and information contained in these books. To have reference photos in book form lessens the time of searching the internet. Great series!

Ray Stryker Ace, Scale Models & Dioramas of World War II (Facebook)

For the scale modeling enthusiast and Tiger Tank history buffs, this book is one of the finest available... Fantastic book for the serious student, the casual historical reader or those who recreate history via scale modeling. I would highly recommend Tiger I as a fantastic study of the machine or in getting right down to the nuts and bolts of an actual build. It will vastly improve your work with its many levels of tips and suggestions. It is a great addition to the Tiger tank enthusiast’s library as well as a great historical study of the legendary Tank.

Richard Wade, Military Historian

A reference documentation for both the scale modeler and the professionals in charge of their reproductions in kits.
