Tigerfibel (1943) - The Tank Museum Are Republishing a New and Authentic English Language Reproduction
Unlike previous translations of Tigerfibel, this cloth-back, colour edition published by The Tank Museum will feature a new English language translation carefully set over the German.
The Tigerfibel was originally produced for the young conscripts who would have been operating the Tiger Tank in the Second World War. This engaging historical document takes the complexities of operating the Tiger Tank and boils them down into an easy to read and engaging handbook.
Based on the original document housed in our Archive, this self-published title will feature English text carefully set over the German, retaining the rhyming verses and intended wit of the authors.
Such sophisticated machines required considerable knowledge to keep them in action, so commanders sought to snag the interest of young tank crews with these light-hearted, well-illustrated handbooks.
I love it , it is a great conversation starter when people come over
Excellent historic piece. Its very interesting in the how the Germans attempted to orientate new crew members. Clearly as the war progressed new draftees did not get significant training before being sent to the front. All in all, a well done book.
I'm a Tiger Tank enthusiast, and an armor modeler. This book gives me the added little details that makes my hobby fun and unique. This English version book is well done, with lots of humor as in the original German version. I really nice little treasure. I'm also happy to help out the Tank Museum with this purchase.
Fantastic little book to go with my future Tiger model. I enjoyed reading and learning more about this tank and will cherish this for years to come. Book is exactly as described. Worth every penny, especially since it helps fund the museum. If ever I find myself in the UK I'd love to stop by.
As a Tiger Tank enthusiast, it was added to my growing list of Tiger books. Perfect book for that Tiger Tank nut!
