Tank Craft – Panther German Army Medium Tank Italian Front 1944-1945
This is no 38 in the Tank Craft series which details tanks and also covers model kits and accessories to build the tanks covered in the book. This book covers the Panther German Army Tank on the Italian Front 1944 to 1945. The Panzerkampfwagen V Panther was a great tank and was better that most allied. It was very successful on most fronts except Italy where the terrain was a hindrance to the performance of this tank.
I found this book contains so much detailed information and pictures of the Panther and its variants. The Profile pictures are a particular favorite and has given me a few great ideas of the color schemes for when I build my many Kits.
The chapter on the different model builds and kits are of great interest and will provide a good resource when modeling this tank.
I was impressed at the amount of information and history found in the pages of this extremely enjoyable book. The pictures along are worth the cost of the book. I will find this book indispensable in my library of armor books.
I recommend this book highly to everyone with an interest in armor and especially modeling armor. I very much look forward to other releases in this book series and using this book as reference when I build my kits in the Italian Campaign in which my father was a Churchill tank driver in the 51st RTR.
Thanks go to Casemate Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS/USA for allowing me to review it for them.
