The Tiger Tank Story
As the Germans advanced on the East during Operation Barbarossa, they came up against the Soviet T-34 and KV-1 tanks. In response the Tiger I tank's development was hastened in 1942, the Wehrmacht's first armour capable of using the 88mm gun, preferring firepower over mobility. In 1944 it was followed by the even heavier Tiger II. In The Tiger Tank Story, Mark Healy details the development and exploits of the most famous tank in history. With full design information, the history of its use in actions across Europe, and over 100 photographs and artworks, some previously unpublished, this book will appeal to both military enthusiasts and general readers alike.
