Synopsis

The Tiger I is the most famous tank in history. In the right hands it enjoyed spectacular successes, but the Tiger I was also plagued by an array of technical and design flaws which made it a death trap for novice and unwary crews. This unique overview draws on a wide variety of primary accounts of the Tiger I in action from both the Allied and the German perspective. Rare photographs, technical drawings and contemporary reports of the Tiger in combat help to set aside the myths and bring the reality into focus.This book is part of The Hitlers War Machine series, a new military history range compiled and edited by Emmy Award winning author and historian Bob Carruthers. The series draws on primary sources and contemporary documents to provide a new insight into the true nature of Hitlers Wehrmacht.The series consultant is David Mcwhinnie creator of the award winning PBS series Battlefield.

Tiger in combat.

A simple appraisal of the Tiger 1. Nothing new here for anyone interested. The format tends to be repetitive and occasionally confusing.

Excellent overview of this formidable weapon. Does not gloss over the weaknesses or shortcomings of Tiger tanks.

This was quite the monster but over engineered and too expensive to produce in the volumes required. Fantastic kill ratio of from 10:1 to 16:1 but too few to overcome the Soviets. Would like to investigate a Tiger up close to compare with the Leopard used by Canada.
