"a wealth of information...I highly recommend this book for modelers that have an interest in German armor especially self-propelled guns."


‘Even if you don’t plan getting glue on your hands any time soon, this is an impressive piece of work and I enjoyed looking at the illustrations and making the most of the limited but carefully produced text.’
