Storia illustrata del corazzato tedesco protagonista di tanti combattimenti durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Capitoli dedicati al disegno, allo sviluppo, le modifiche apportate, le varianti e all’impiego sui campi di battaglia. Riccamente illustrato con foto e disegni al tratto.
One of the most feared weapons of World War II, the Tiger tank was a beast of a machine which dominated the battlefields of Europe with its astonishing size, speed and firepower. It continues to fascinate more than 70 years after it was first designed, and a comprehensive, illustrated history such as this is long overdue. Revealing its design and development history, Thomas Anderson draws upon original German archival material to tell the story of the birth of the Tiger. He then analyzes its success on the battlefield and the many modifications and variants that also came into play. Illustrated throughout with rare photographs and drawings, many of which have never been published in English before, this is a unique history of easily the most famous tank ever produced.
