The German Tiger Tank was a monster of a machine that dominated the battlefields of Europe and is the most famous tank of World War II. Originally conceived in 1941 in response to the German Army's experience fighting British tanks and anti-tank guns in western Europe and the North African desert, the Tiger cemented its reputation of near invincibility during the savage battles on the Eastern Front.
This new book is an accessible and informative history of the Tiger and its successor, the Tiger II or King Tiger, assessing its success on the battlefield as it dueled against the best armor the Allies had to offer. Gun sight and turret artwork place the reader "inside" the tank during battle and help bring the history of this remarkable tank to life.
