Tiger tanks were among the most-feared fighting vehicles of the Second World War and they gained almost legendary status, yet they never fulfilled their potential because they were not produced in sufficient numbers and the tide the war had turned against the German army by the time they were introduced. Often they were deployed in difficult circumstances and in defensive battles, struggling against the odds. Nowhere was this more true than in western Europe during the Allied advance across France and into Germany, and it is the Tigers of this phase of the war that Dennis Oliver portrays in his third volume on the Tiger in the TankCraft series.

He uses archive photos and extensively researched colour illustrations to examine the Tiger tanks and units of the German Army and Waffen-SS heavy panzer battalions that struggled to resist the onslaught of Allied armour and air attacks during the last days of the conflict.

A key section of his book displays 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 these historic tanks.

Very high quality, good reference material, well researched and very inspirational.

Mr Oliver has a confident air, and a growing list of detail books on camo, machines etc. He writes well within the narrow field discussed... this has actually made me want to try & create something more tied to a real tank.

WW2 Talk

Book No 13 in the TankCraft series from Pen and Sword, and another in this series by author Dennis Oliver. The book follows the regular format for these TankCraft books and provide an excellent mix of historical background, technical details of the tanks themselves along with colour profiles, a showcase of expertly completed models and a survey of kits and accessories that are available on the market. Judging by the number of manufacturers who produce models of the Tiger I & II, modellers seem to have an unquenching demand for all of them... Another interesting addition to the series from Dennis, and with something to interest both the modeller and the armour historian.

Military Model Scene, Robin Buckland

Wow! What an amazing book and series! Dennis Oliver does a wonderful job of compiling information on two of the most recognized and modeled tanks during WWII. I am a World War II enthusiast and model builder and I found this book to be highly informative and useful not only to the World War II historian but to the World War II diorama and model builder as well. It is so full of facts, photos, paint schemes, model builds, kit manufacturers and aftermarket information that it is a must-have for any modelers library!

The degree of detail such specialist publications go into is extraordinary. It's amazing how much interest in WWII there is, and how almost every nut and bolt of every individual Panzer can be traced and accounted for. Truly astonishing! The amount of resources available to us enthusiasts is terrific. And if this example is typical of Dennis Oliver's contributions to the field, he's a top drawer contributor to this embarrassment of riches.
