By Craig Moore
When the Panzer VI Ausf. E Tiger I tank first arrived on the battlefield, it started the Allied and Soviet intelligence race to discover everything they could about this new threat.
The British Army quickly needed to know how to knock it out, then communicate that information back to the troops that had to face this new German metal monster either by official means or via newspapers.
This is not a typical book on the Tiger tank. It tries to show the reader what the British and Commonwealth forces knew about the Tiger I tank during the war and the results of scientific firing trials. Unpublished Second World War original documents, discovered in different archives, have been transcribed and reproduced along with any existing photographs found in those official secret reports.
These include top-secret Bletchley Park and Enigma intercepts of German messages that were decoded and translated before being sent to wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Illustrated with over 360 images, "How to Kill a Tiger Tank" is the definitive examination of a world-changing fighting vehicle.
This opinion is from a modeller’s point of view …..
This book corrects a lot of the myths surrounding the Tiger most notably the one that many seem believe that the tank was invincible! It was not, and the back room boys proved that giving those at the sharp end a chance to take it on with a better chance of surviving until the next confrontation. And we must thank the Armourers, the Ballistics boys and girls and the Boffins for that. From a modelling aspect the illustrations clearly show the damaging effects of projectile-on-plate giving modellers the opportunity to accurately represent shot damage in scale. And there is always seeing what damage the tank could take and what might bring it down!
Whether you just want to educate yourself, are interested in history, want the truths or like accuracy in your models then this book may well be a good investment! Whilst the book’s subject matter may seem obscure it was a worthwhile purchase for me! Cheers!
