AFV PHOTO ALBUM VOL. 2

by Marek Solar

Co-authored by Petr Dolezal and Vladimir Kos this is the second volume in the series continuing the journey through the Czech lands, where a tremendous number of vehicles were knocked out, blown-up or simply left behind by retreating German forces during the final weeks of World War 2. Among them were also vast amounts of Red Army machines, knocked out in the tank battles that raged. The book takes a closer look at what happened to the vehicles after the war. King Tigers, Panthers, Pz.IVs, StuGs. Hetzers, SPWs, T-34s and IS-2s were among them, as well as Möbelwagens, Marders and L/70As. The work is a photographic examination with accounts of the units’ strength, and details of vehicle production variants. Modellers will benefit from the highly realistic, large format colour profiles. English/Czech text.
