The Panzer III was in combat continuously from 1939 to 1944 and formed the backbone of Hitler's Panzer divisions. During the Second World War, Panzer III saw action in Poland, France, North Africa and the Eastern Front. The Museum's Panzer III went into action in the North African theatre of war and fell into Allied hands in 1942.
It has been meticulously restored by The Tank Museum and is the centerpiece of this manual. The Haynes Panzer III Manual was written and published in association with The Tank Museum, giving the authors full access to the Museum's Panzer III collection.
Great book, well written and very interesting plus superb photos too
1) The printing quality of the book ist very good for this auspicious prise.
2) There are a lot of colored pictures/photos from the Panzer III by the photos and drawings. These Shows the in- and outside from the Tank. A Lot of the Tank equipment is shown too. Only typical Cameouflage pattern are not treated.
3)the Text: the book is starting with the enveloping of our German tanks in the Weimarer Republik until to the Panzer III. After that follows information about the different variants and a lot of technical informations including the used ammunition.
I think when you are a beginner of the tank history or someone who want to know about more of the technical details of the Panzer III, than will be this book a good decision for you.
