Tigerfibel (1943) - The Tank Museum Are Republishing a New and Authentic English Language Reproduction
Unlike previous translations of Tigerfibel, this cloth-back, colour edition published by The Tank Museum will feature a new English language translation carefully set over the German.
The Tigerfibel was originally produced for the young conscripts who would have been operating the Tiger Tank in the Second World War. This engaging historical document takes the complexities of operating the Tiger Tank and boils them down into an easy to read and engaging handbook.
Based on the original document housed in our Archive, this self-published title will feature English text carefully set over the German, retaining the rhyming verses and intended wit of the authors.
Such sophisticated machines required considerable knowledge to keep them in action, so commanders sought to snag the interest of young tank crews with these light-hearted, well-illustrated handbooks.
My grandson will receive Tigerfibel for Christmas with his Bricklmania Super Pershing and Brickmania Panther. We adults have perused Tigerfibel and have found it so exciting.
Just love it
The book is beautiful and well made. It looks great sitting next to my Panther Fibel. I hope the museum does more like this. Thanks!
Everyone involved with this project did a great job. The new Tigerfibel book is a fascinating look at the training and upkeep of personnel and equipment of the war effort. Glad to have been a part of bringing it back.
Wins a ton of awards from me as both a reprint of the original, as well as a great translation. Very much a collector's item!
