Opis produktu:

Hard cover, large format (9x12), hard cover, 610 pages total with 800+ photos, 32 pages of color artwork by Jean Restayn and 76 pages of organizational diagrams by Waldemar Trojca.

This book is to the radio- and remote-controlled units as the Combat History of the schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 653 book was to the Elefant and the Ferdinand. An absolute must for the discriminating armor fan — more than 800+ photos, most of which have been previously unpublished. Besides never-before published photos of the demolition carriers and the mine-clearing vehicles, there are hundreds of great shots of the command and control vehicles: the kleiner Panzerbefehlswagen, the Leitpanzer III, the Sturmgeschütz III and the Tiger.  

The next portion of the book covers the early units which used the sdkfz 265 (Panzer I kleine Befelspanzer) as control vehicles. A large number of images are included in this section and they are of excellent quality and mostly unpublished.
The book then moves on to cover Pz. Abt 300 and 301with their panzer III control tanks. Photo coverage is spectacular consisting of large clear images that are usually only 2 per page (considering that this is a large format book, this makes images that are larger than some full page photos in smaller format publications).
Being a StuG fan, the next 300 pages or so are the highlight of the book as literally hundreds of images of StuG III Ausf G are featured in various situations. Also included are some images of a 3 ton Maultier using a Borgward truck and sdkfz 11 running gear. Only 2 of these were produced, nice to have them caught on film. Also of interest are image of Ferdinands which served or trained alongside these units. Also included are some particularly nasty images of the fighting during the Warsaw uprising,
Tiger unit coverage is excellent with some great action shots as well as detail photos clearly showing the antennae arrangement.
Throughout the book there are numerous organisational organigrams which are very nicely done. The book concludes with 30 pages of nice colour plates from Jean Restayn, handy stuff for the modeller or historian.
It's particularly difficult to give a really comprehensive summary of the material covered in a book of this size, but I can only say that in this case, good things come in big packages. This book is easily as good as JJF's 653 book, in fact based on the quality of the images and the unique subject matter, I would rate this as JJF's best book yet. The sheer amount of unpublished StuG and Tiger images alone make this book essential reference material, let alone the historical value of the excellent text and Borgward coverage.
