The book is a well-documented and very detailed combat history of the schwere Panzer-Abteilung 508 and its deployment in Italy.
This book captures the remembrances of those who were with the battalion when it formed, during its operations in the difficult tank country of Italy and the final fighting in Germany and Northern Italy, often as infantry. The text is enhanced with all the photographs from the original German edition, plus approximately 100 more from a variety of sources around the world. in addition, this volume has 10 pages of colour artwork by the internationally famous military vehicle artist, Jean Restayn.
