Comments: Wolfgang Schneider has written the definitive account of German small-unit armour tactics. Using period training manuals, after-action reports, countless interviews with Panzer veterans, and his own experiences as an armour commander in the modern Germany Army, Schneider describes World War II Panzer tactics, coupling his narrative with scores of illustrations that highlight armour concepts.

Schneider covers the major types of small-unit operational art – offensive and defensive – and also discusses road marches, reconnaissance, command and control, working with other arms of service, life in a tank, armour training, gunnery, and the future of armour. The book provides useful insight into armour tactics for both the layman and the armour enthusiast. Features include: ultimate inside view of the blitzkrieg in World War II; diagrams, maps, and schematics illustrate key principles; hundreds of rare photographs show Panzers and crews in action.
