"The Tiger Tank and Allied Intelligence Vol.III: Tiger 131: From Africa to Europe"
By Bruce Oliver Newsome, Ph.D.
The Tiger Tank was dramatically more powerful than any other tank when deployed in 1942. How did the Germans preserve its secrets? Why were the allies taken by surprise? What did they discover?
Discover the previously untold story of how Tiger 131 was captured in almost perfect condition, after fighting for two days, against parts of four battalions of tanks and six battalions of infantry. No less remarkable is its recovery and exploitation in Tunisia, how it got to Britain, its tardy and incomplete trials, the missing reports, and the tank’s relegation in disabled condition, while Tigers continued to dominate the battlefield through the end of the war.
