The Hotchkiss H35 or Char léger modèle 1935 H was a French cavalry tank developed prior to World War II. From 1938 an improved version was produced with a stronger engine, the Char léger modèle 1935 H modifié 39, which from 1940 was also fitted with more powerful 37 mm gun. About 500+ Hotchkiss tanks were captured and used by the Germans as Panzerkampfwagen 35H 734(f) or Panzerkampfwagen 39H 735(f), most of them for occupation and assigned to police units or second line logistic support troops.

This profusely illustrated photo album includes over 90 period photos, many previously unseen from private sources in Germany.


"The large, crisply printed images reveal many subtle vehicle and setting details that smaller reproductions often lack. Captions themselves often read like CSI reports - with the author authoritatively reporting nuances and minutiae, conjectures and conclusions."
