The book that adds very substantially to the knowledge of how the German Panzer Arm operated in the Second World War.

By Richard Freiherr von Rosen

Richard Freiherr von Rosen was a highly-decorated Wehrmacht soldier and outstanding Panzer commander. His memoirs, richly illustrated with contemporary photographs, including key confrontations of World War II. After serving as a gun layer on a Pz.Mk.III during Barbarossa, he led a Company of Tigers at Kursk, later a company of King Tiger panzers at Normandy and in late 1944 commanded a battle group (12 King Tigers and a flak Company) against the Russians in Hungary in the rank of junior, later senior lieutenant (from November 1944, his final rank.) ?? Only 489 of these King Tiger tanks were ever built.

They were the most powerful heavy tanks to see service, and only one kind of shell could penetrate their armour at a reasonable distance. Every effort had to be made to retrieve any of them bogged down or otherwise immobilised, which led to many towing adventures.  and adds very substantially to the knowledge of how the German Panzer Arm operated in the Second World War.
