Sturmgeschütz III on the Battlefield 4

World War Two Photobook Series Vol.13 by Mátyás Pánczél

Continuing this excellent series of high quality dual-language (English & Hungarian) with a look at the Sturmgeshütz III on the battlefield. Literally translated as ‘Assault Gun’, the Sturmgeshütz III (aka StuG III) is featured in this photobook in service between 1943 and 1945 on the Eastern, Italian and Western Fronts.

The book begins with a good a dual-language introduction by author Mátyás Pánczél and then from page eight through to page 110 its pure StuG ‘eye candy’! Every single image is excellent, and takes up an entire page with space below for a decent length caption in both English and Hungarian. As usual with these books, the subject matter is carefully selected to present the vehicle and its crews in as many different scenarios as possible. Selecting images from such a diverse range of theatres helps the modeller no end with regard to conditions such as obvious difference between the mud of the Western Front and the near desert conditions of the Italian.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough, not only for StuG fans, and I know there are a lot of you out there, but also for the military modeller.
