Overview

In this follow-up to Tigers in Combat I (0811731715), Wolfgang Schneider turns his attention to the Tiger tanks of the Waffen-SS and the Wehrmacht's "named" units, such as the GroÝdeutschland Division, Company Hummel, and Tiger Group Meyer. Based on combat diaries, the text tells the history of each unit, but most of the book is devoted to photos of the tanks and the men who manned them. It offers as unique and comprehensive a look at these lethal machines as is possible sixty years after World War II. Includes hundreds of photos—many of them rare—of Tiger tanks and their crews. Color illustrations by Jean Restayn focus on markings, camouflage, and insignia and inventories and timelines for each unit.

Author Biography: Wolfgang Schneider, an officer in the German army, is the author of numerous articles and books on the history of armored vehicles. He is editor of the reference book Tanks of the World (3763759840).
