Translated by Wulf D. Brand
An authentic illustrated translation of the original Tiger tank manual to Second World War Tiger crews.
In 1942, the officer in charge of training tank crews, Lieutenant Colonel Hans Christern recognised the need for a simple, straightforward training manual for his Tiger crews.
Young crews operating this complex machine were presented with a manual that differs in style and substance from any training material used by the German army at the time. Filled with puns and burlesque illustrations, ‘Tigerfibel’ provides a glimpse into the psychology of a confident German tank corps in 1943.
