Description - Hitler's Great Panzer Heist by Anthony Tucker-Jones

The prowess of the German panzers is the stuff of legend, but it is not generally known that Hitler stole thousands of British, Czech, French, Italian, Polish, and Soviet tanks and armored fighting vehicles to feed his war machine. At its height, more than 25 percent of the German tank force was of foreign origin. In this fascinating and meticulously researched investigation, Anthony Tucker-Jones tells this hitherto unrecorded story, describing how captured fighting vehicles were reused by the German military throughout World War II. * Previously untold story of armored vehicles in World War II * Explains how foreign tanks made the German blitzkrieg of 1939-41 possible and were used in battles like Kursk, the Bulge, and many others * Covers tanks, self-propelled guns, assault guns, armored cars, and personnel carriers
