Regarded by many as one of the greatest tanks ever built, the German Panther is probably the finest medium tank of the Second World War.
It is certainly the most numerous German panzer in wartime service, with some 7,000 built. It combined firepower, armour protection and mobility that was unmatched by any other tank of the period. In the Panther Tank Owners' Workshop Manual, author Mark Healy looks at the development, construction and fighting qualities of the Panther, as well as including insights into what it was like to operate and maintain. He focuses on surviving Panthers at the German Armour Museum in Munster (Panther Ausf A) and the later Panther Ausf G at the Tank Museum, Bovington, as his centrepieces and draws on a range of documentary and photographic information sources in Germany, the USA and France.
Excellent book for model super-detailing.
My only gripe was that the packaging left both sides partially open and could easily have resulted in rain water ruining it. Luckily our village postman placed it in a dry spot on a very rainy day...
Vous aimez les Panthers ceci est votre livre.
Great reference book for thosewishing to study and model the Panther tank.
A great purchase at the really good price. I have purchase several of these handbooks and as a tank nut found them very useful as reference for my model tank builds.
As title says I am the panther man. It is a very interesting book well delivered. My next target will be sturmgeschütz.
