From the rear side cover: In the summer of 1944, the Russians launched a series of offensives, under the codename Operation Bagration, that would take the Red Army from the fields and villages of Byelorussia and the Ukraine to the streets of Berlin. Forced onto the defensive, the Germans employed their armoured units as fire brigades, shuttled from one sector to another in an effort to halt, or at least slow, the Soviet juggernaut. The Panther tank and Jagdpanther tank destroyer were two of the most potent weapons in the Wehrmacht's inventory and both are examined in this book by Dermis Oliver and Stephen Andrew, their first jor Bookworld Publishing. Following on from an earlier title, this volume concludes the unit histories of the army's Panther battalions and chronicles the service of the Jagdpanther units on the Eastern Front. Complemented by 13 pages of painstakingly researched, exquisitely presented colour illustrations, black and white archive photos, detailed orders of battle and organisational charts, this book provides a superb reference for the military enthusiast, modeller and general reader.
