Arranged as a photographic album, this book is a fascinating pictorial history of Czechoslovak tanks during the Second World War, when they were manufactured for service in the Wehrmacht. The book concentrates on the Czech military designation tanks LT vz. 35 and LT vz.38, which when in service with the Wehrmacht were perhaps better known as the German Pz.Kpfw. Panzer 35(t) and the German Pz.Kpfw. Panzer 38(t)
Aside from 8 or so pages of text at the start of the book (with all text in both English and Czech), every page of the book is taken up with a total of over 200 black and white photographs showing vehicles, and each photograph has a very short caption detailing what is shown (this caption is in both Czech and English).
From the publishers description: This book (Part 3 of Czechoslovak Tanks 1930-1945 trilogy) examines the development and construction of tanks made in Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia between 1939 - 1945. There are around 220 period photographs of various prototypes and models of German Wehrmacht superstructures on Czechoslovakian tank chassis LT 35 – PZ.Kpfw. 35 (t) and LT vz. 38 – PZ.Kpfw. 38(t) - both of which were produced in this period by the two main manufacturers ČKD (BMM) and Skoda. There are several previously unpublished photographs contained in the book.
Condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
