In World War II the Panzer spearheaded every major battle, compaign or battle from the invasions of Poland and France in the "Blitzkrieg", to the last great counter-offensive in the Ardennes. Germany's Panzer crews fought on every front and along the way had earned a formidable reputation for elan in the attack and steadfastness in defence. This book charts the recruitment, training, service conditions and combat experience of a typical World War II German tank crewman, serving on various fronts - from the scorching heat of the Western Desert to the frozen tundra of the Eastern Front. It features unpublished photographs which have come from two main sources - private collectors and Panzer veterans themselves.
