Opis produktu:

Designed with the war-gamer and military historian in mind, Ian Allan Publishing's new `Tanks & Armour' series represents an excellent pictorial reference to many of the most important tank designs of the 20th century. The series begins with the first German tanks to be developed subsequent to the Treaty of Versailles. After the rise of Hitler, rearmament was accelerated and plans were laid for the development of purpose-built battle tanks that eventually emerged as the Panzers III and IV. As an interim measure, a vehicle was required for the training of the nascent armoured forces and, in 1933, prototypes of a simple, cheap and easy to manufacture tank were invited from a number of firms. A design by Krupp, based on the Carden-Loyd tankette, was selected and production began in 1934 under the code-name Landwirtschaftlicher Schlepper or `agricultural tractor'. In 1935 a further stopgap machine, the Pzkpfw II, was produced. Blooded in the Spanish Civil War, these erstwhile training machines were numerically the most important tanks during the early campaigns of World War 2 and their contribution to the success of Blitzkrieg warfare was considerable. Drawing upon archive photographs, line drawings and specially prepared colour artwork, the book describes in detail the development of the early Panzer models. Alongside the illustrations, the well researched text puts the designs into their historical context, providing the reader with a comprehensive study of these important, but often overlooked, German models.
