88 mm FlaK 18/36/37/41 and PaK 43 1936-45 by John Norris
Book DescriptionThe German 88 mm was by far the most famous and versatile artillery weapon of World War II. It was first used as an anti-aircraft weapon by the Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War. It saw further service in the German invasions of Poland and France, and during this period it was first used in the anti-tank role. This new role was particularly successful and the 88 became feared by tank crews from North Africa to Russia. Apart from these two main roles the 88 mm was used as the main weapon on late-war German tanks, as a self-propelled gun, mounted on battleships such as the Bismarck and the Schamhorst and even as an aerial weapon. John Norriss covers all these variants, explaining their design, development and operational use.
