Simply put, this is a superb volume! If you model German WWII AFVs which should include the tiger family of tanks, this book is an absolute necessity. It's full of awesome pictures and drawings along with well written easy to digest historical information on all the Tigers and their variants. There is so much good information and good reading here this book has to appeal to anybody with any interest in tanks or weapons development. honestly, I can't say enough about this book! The last section is a reprint with English translation of the Tigerfibel 80, a humorous operator and technical manual for Tiger crews. Besides being chock full of detailed information the English translation is excellent. I have seen reprints of this alone selling for as much as this entire book! I can sum it up this way- if you have an interest in the subject from any perspective or just want an unusual read, buy this book! You will NOT be disappointed!
