Opis produktu:

During the final battles on World War II's Western Front, the legendary German Tiger I heavy tank clashed with the brand-new M26 Pershing fielded by the United States. The Tiger I had earned a formidable reputation by the end of 1944, although its non-sloped armour and poor mobility meant it was being superseded by the Tiger II or 'King Tiger'. While the Tiger I had been in the front lines since 1942, the US Pershing first saw combat in late February 1945, and only 20 Pershings would see combat before war's end.

This book examines the encounters between the Tigers of Gruppe Fuhrmann and the Pershings of the 9th Armored Division during March 1945, notably at Elsdorf in Germany. It also assesses the clashes between the sole M26A1E2 'Super Pershing' deployed to Europe and Tigers. Featuring full-colour artwork, carefully chosen photographs and specially commissioned maps, this is the story of the first US heavy tanks in combat with the fearsome Tiger I during the last months of World War II in Europe.

 

This fully illustrated study assesses the origins, development, and combat record of Nazi Germany's legendary Tiger I and the US M26 Pershing during the final battles of World War II in Europe. It will appeal to any enthusiast of armoured warfare in the conflict, especially wargamers and modellers.
