From the rear side cover: This is the first photographic history of German armour lost on the Eastern Front. In the modern day we are most familiar with the image of heavy armour as mechanical monsters storming enemy troops; however, it is rare to get a glimpse of these machines in a less glamorous light - knocked out or destroyed on the battlefield. From the opening stages of the war to the ds challenges of Barbarossa and the long and bloody retreat to Berlin, we have scoured the archives to collate the best images of conquered German armour to be found throughout the Second World War. Featuring rare images, this is the definitive record of German armour lost on the Eastern Front, and an essential addition to any enthusiast's collection.
