Authoritatively written and featuring 70 photographs, fully annotated cutaway artworks, three- and four-view profile artworks and tables, Panther Tank tells the story of World War II's finest all-round tank and will have a strong appeal to anyone interested in twentieth century military history.

However, during the German invasion of the Soviet Union in July 1941, the advancing German tanks met the Soviet T-34, which could deflect any German tank weapon. A new tank was required that could fight the T-34 on equal terms - thus the Panther was born.
Sorry I cannot give you a proper review as my Partner snaffled the book as soon as the postie delivered the package. I will get it on 30/Dec and could give you a good insight on the book then.
