What an exotic work! The focus? German small-unit armor tactics in World War II (the book's subtitle, as a matter of fact). One odd thing: The book also discusses Post World War-II small unit tank tactics, which seems a bit out of place.

Panzer Tactics is a unique book in my collection. It is a large paperback packed with not just detailed examination and explanation of Panzer tactics in World War 2, but also extensive photographs from the time, including everything from actual battle photos to routine maintenance. If you want to know just how the German armoured units operated in World War 2, this is definitely the best book for it, written by a leading light on the matter.
How the Panzers functioned in WWII. Excellent tips for wargaming—if they can be used at the game’s scale. Very interesting.
