Product Description
The Tiger I design gave the Wehrmacht its first tank mounting the 88mm gun, which had previously demonstrated its effectiveness against both air and ground targets. During the course of the war, the Tiger I saw combat on all German battlefronts. It was usually deployed in independent tank battalions, which proved to be quite formidable.

For the first time in English, Wolfgang Schneider, an expert on German armour, presents a complete combat chronicle of the German Tiger Tank, including new details on how the Tiger performed against Allied armour, particularly the Sherman, and famous tank ace Michael Wittmann, Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross holder, credited with the destruction of 138 tanks and 132 anti-tank guns, along with an unknown number of other armoured vehicles. Maps, orders of battle, period photos, and then-and-now shots make this the go-to book on the subject.
