Description
Dedicated German antitank vehicles made their first major appearance in the Second World War as combatants developed effective armored vehicles and tactics. Some were little more than stopgap solutions, mounting an antitank gun on a tracked vehicle to give mobility, while others were more sophisticated designs. The book covers the development and technology throughout the war that led to tank destroyers like the Panzerjger I, Sturmgeschtz, Marders, Nashorn. Hetzer, Jagdpanzer, Elefant, Jagdtiger IV and Jagdpanther vehicles being developed. As the war progressed the tank destroyers fire power became more lethal to meet the ever increasing threat against Soviet armor. Larger and more powerful variants entered the battlefield, but due the overwhelming enemy opposition they were compelled not only to attack armor, but to support ground troops too. This comprehensive account covers all the Nazis mobile antitank vehicles in words and images.
