Repairing the Panzers, Vol. 2 - German Tank Maintenance in WW 2

Repairing the Panzers, Vol. 2 - German Tank Maintenance in WW 2
Why did the Blitz against Russia fail? How did winter and desert conditions affect operational readiness? Why weren’t captured Russian vehicles pressed into service like French and other vehicles were? What was the purpose of the ‘Panzerstützpunkt’ of 1944? What kept heavy Panzers from mixing in with lighter Panzers? What really caused the loss of brand new Panzers?
The answers to these and other questions can be found here in Vol. 2 of “Repairing the Panzers.” Based solely on original experience reports, diaries and manuals, you will learn how small parts led to big problems, how herculean efforts led to diminishing returns, and, for the first time, you will go behind the scenes and learn how reliable the infamous Panthers and Tigers really were.
These new findings are presented in 256 pages, illustrated with 279 photos, most of them unpublished, supported by original drawings, diagrams and tables.
Illustrated throughout, with 279 large format photos, most unpublished (and so even not published in the original German edition "Panzerinstandsetzung der Wehrmacht", which is out of print and will not be reprinted!) and reproduced full-page size, plus drawings, diagrams and tables.
