"This book is the first to tell the story of the Tiger tank in battle. With over 100 photographs, the book brings to life the combat service of the German army's independent Tiger tank companies. From the development of a prototype for Hitlers birthday in 1942, to the tank's role at Leningrad, Tunisia, and Kursk, the book follows the fate of this most feared weapon of World War IItill it quite literally ran out of fuel at the Battle of the Bulge. Part of the 'Spearhead' series published by the Zenith Press, this highly informative and lavishly illustrated book chronicles the story of the German Tiger tank during World War II."
The Aptos Times
"George Forty has created an all-encompassing text that covers the origin and history of the Panzer Kampfwagen VI or Tiger tank and its development into a permier fighting maching during World War II..."
The inclusion of 25 color and 75 black and white photos, 10 maps and diagrams, and a short reference section makes this a book anyone interested in the use of armor in World War II will want to read and add to his library. For the price, you won't find a better or more detailed volume that gives the particulars of the German battalions that employed the famed Tiger tank during World War II."
