Osprey Men-at-Arms 24 : The Panzer Divisions
For the first three years of the Second World War the German Army's armoured formations dominated the world's battlefields. During this period the Panzerwaffe swept all before them, achieving victories over numerically superior and sometimes better equipped opponents. The heart of this success lay in the characteristics and employment of Panzer divisions, engineered by far sighted leaders such as Guderian, Lutz and von Thoma. Martin Windrow examines one of the German Army's most effective and feared rapid attack forces and provides a summary of every Panzer division's war record along with an extensive examination of their uniforms, equipment and decorations. The text is accompanied by many contemporary photographs together with extensive commentaries and includes eight full page colour plates by Richard Hook.
