Tigers in Combat II

This volume covers the Tiger units of the Waffen SS as well as “named” units within the Army, such as Grodeutschland, Kompanie Hummel and Kompanie Meyer. Plenty of rare or previously unpublished photos and masses of combat diary information available for the first time. 

Hundreds of photos–many of them rare–of Tiger tanks and their crews Color illustrations by Jean Restayn focus on markings, camouflage, and insignia Inventories and timelines for each unit In this follow-up to “Tigers in Combat I” (0-8117-3171-5), Wolfgang Schneider turns his attention to the Tiger tanks of the Waffen-SS and the Wehrmacht’s “named” units, such as the Grossdeutschland Division, Company Hummel, and Tiger Group Meyer. Based on combat diaries, the text tells the history of each unit, but most of the book is devoted to photos of the tanks and the men who manned them. It offers as unique and comprehensive a look at these lethal machines as is possible sixty years after World War II.

This is the original first printing from 1998 with the camo hardcover.
