STURMARTILLERIE: SPEARHEAD OF THE INFANTRY

by Thomas Anderson

The Sturmartillerie was a key part of Germany's armoured arsenal throughout World War II. Its armoured assault guns were designed to support the artillery on the battlefield, largely using the purpose-built Sturmgeschütz infantry support gun. This new and exhaustive study details the development and operational history of this innovative force, as well as describing how its role and the tactics it employed changed from the glory years of Blitzkrieg through to the desperate defence of the last years of the war. It also describes the technical development and evolution of the vehicles employed, and includes combat action reports and excerpts from interviews with veterans.

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.

New in illustrated boards - Large format, 176pp, 13 colour plates, c350 b/w photos

THE LAST PANTHER: SLAUGHTER OF THE REICH

by Wolfgang Faust

Translated from the memoir 'Kesselpanzer' this is an account of the breakout from the Halbe-Kessel, April to May, 1945. While the Battle of Berlin is widely known, the horrific story of the Halbe Kessel remains largely untold. In April 1945, victorious Soviet forces encircled 80,000 men of the German 9th Army in the Halbe area, South of Berlin, together with many thousands of German civilians. The small town of Halbe became the eye of the hurricane for the breakout, as King Tigers of the SS Panzer Corps led the spearhead to the West, supported by Panthers of the battle-hardened 21st Panzer Division. This is a first-hand account by the commander of one of those Panther tanks.
