Overview
-

A complete guide of the German Army Light Tank, the Panzer III, using archive photos and extensively researched color illustrations.

The Pzkpfw III tank was the mainstay of the Panzer divisions during the Blitzkrieg era, which could fairly be said to have ended with the Germans' failure to take Moscow in the winter of 1941. Although less heavily armored than many of its opponents and somewhat outgunned by the latest Soviet types, the Pzkpfw III was at the forefront of the advances made over almost impossible distances during the summer and autumn and provided the core of the armored reserve that fought the defensive battles of the winter months.

In Dennis Oliver's latest volume in the TankCraft series he uses archive photos and extensively researched color illustrations to examine the Pzkpfw III and the units that operated this deservedly famous armored vehicle along a 1,000-mile front during the battles of Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union. A key section of his book displays available model kits and after-market products, complemented by a gallery of beautifully constructed and painted models in various scales.

Technical details as well as modifications introduced during production and in the field are also examined, providing everything the modeler needs to recreate an accurate representation of these historic tanks.

"The TankCraft books are always welcome additions to my resource collection as inspiration for new projects and paint schemes or to pick out details I might have missed in a build...The photos are interesting and not common ones you see in the typical history books. Overall, a fantastic read."

"A special modeler's section covers plastic models, mostly 1/35 but including 1/48, 1/72, and other scales in exquisite detail. The 95 color photos show completed models, box covers, and aftermarket items."
