Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of Squadron-Signal books. They are fairly inexpensive, are well written, and help an average model maker in subjects.

So, I'm giving three stars to the book. It's old and it shows it. The front, back, and middle of the book have some nice color drawings of the Panzer I, Panzer II A, and the Czech tanks taken into German service.

The drawings of the Panzer II are in 1/37th scale, same for the Panzer II. So if you want to convert your Tamiya 1/35th Panzer II ausf D into an ausf A you might want to know that fact. Also, it would be nice if the drawings were on a constant scale. The drawings also lack an over head look, that cost a star.

I like the writing on the Panzer I. Basically, it was a training tank and it was much too lightly armed and armored.

There are quite a few excellent pictures of the Panzers in action. I really like the pictures of the Panzers in Poland and France. A reader looking for information on making a diorama can learn quite a bit from a study of the pictures.

I wish there had been more information on the very important ex-Czech PZ-38. Basically, it it had not been for that tank then the Panzer formations would not have been so effective in France. The PZ-38 was well armed for the time, it carried a 37mm gun. The PZ-38 was equal of the Panzer III, the subject of another book.

Generally, this book is a fair example of the early "In Action" series from Squadron. It does give the reader some valuable information at an inexpensive price. The book has limitations, which is why it gets three stars. However, it has some worth while information on the subject and is not too expensive. I recommend this book to anybody who wants some general information on early German light Panzers but does not want to spend lots of money on a large reference book.

Three Stars.
