Overview
-

The Panzer IV was the only German tank to stay in production throughout the war. It was the backbone of the Panzer force and was deployed on every front. Due to its efficient armament, robust armor and outstanding reliability, crews preferred it over the Panther, Tiger and King Tiger.

Emmy Award winning historian Bob Carruthers compiled this comprehensive overview of the Panzer IV in action. It draws heavily on wartime intelligence reports to produce a fascinating insight into the development and combat history of the Panzer IV at the tactical and operational level.

Also featured are rare photographs and illustrations, which provide an absorbing study, from an array of primary sources, of the world of the Panzer IV and its crews, which conveys to the modern reader a vivid sense of how they were viewed at the time.
