    Minute by Minute Armored Action!

    If you are the least bit interested in armored warfare then this book is a must. Panzer Aces tells the remarkable stories of some of the highest scoring tank aces of all time. The sections covering Hans Bolter (Tiger commander- 139+ tank kills) and Hermann Bix (Panther commander- 75 tank kills) are hard to beat. The detailed accounts of individual and unit actions against mostly Soviet adversaries is without rival. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to gain a better picture of the daily actions and dangers associated with armored warfare inside a tank.
