Opis produktu:

The Allied land forces in Europe were not ready for the Tiger Tank. Its arrival on the battlefield brought a potency and impregnability the Allied vehicles could not match. That they were gradually overcome was only the result of poor back-up from other German equipment and Allied superiority in other aspects of weaponry. This analysis of the Tiger variants is compiled by the one British officer better placed than any other to assess its excellence and value on the battlefield. As a young tank officer, the author's own tank was "knocked out" by a Tiger. In turn this enemy vehicle became the first working example of a Tiger to be captured by Allied forces and it was Peter Gudgin, now back in England, who was charged with dissecting and evaluating it.

A brilliant book by the master of Tiger Tanks Peter Gudgin.....black and white photos through the book in no way take away from the quality and the information he provides...

 

About the Author

When a young tank officer, Peter Gudgin's own Churchill tank was knocked out by a Tiger in North Africa in 1943. That Tiger was subsequently captured intact, and shipped to Britain for examination at the School of Tank Technology at Chertsey - where the author had subsequently been posted, and was part of the examining team. He was eventually to assume responsibility for writing the British War Office official history of German Second World War AFV development.
