Overview
-

The Tiger I and Tiger II tanks are probably the most famous German armored fighting vehicles of the Second World War, and despite the relatively small numbers produced, the heavy Panzer units of the German Army played a key role in the battles fought in North Africa, Italy, the Western Front, and particularly in the East.

In the seventh and final book on the Tiger in this series, Dennis Oliver examines the first tanks that left the production line to go into service on the Eastern Front in an effort to break the Russian defenses around Leningrad. As reinforcements steadily arrived, the same units played an important part in the blunting of the Soviet offensive efforts and in the retaking of Kharkov in eastern Ukraine in early 1943, a tactical achievement that is studied in military academies around the world today. In addition to archive photographs and painstakingly researched, exquisitely presented color illustrations, a large part of this book showcases available model kits and aftermarket 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 the Tigers of 1942 and early 1943.
