The story of Hitler's tank divisions is more than one of mere mechanical efficiency. It is also about those who commanded and fought, and believed in their near-invincibility. These are the men who come to life in this immensely readable narrative - great generals like Guderian, Rommel and Manstein, tank aces like Wittmann and Bake, and inspired commanders like Balck and Bayerlein dominate the story of Panzerkrieg. Dispensing with jargon, but including explanatory maps, rare illustrations and fascinating detail on uniforms, crew members and mechanical features of the machines, the authors give a comprehensive overview of all aspects of the subject, both human and technical. They have also benefited from new information available since the opening of cold war archives.
