In this follow-up to Tigers in Combat, Wolfgang Schneider turns his attention to the Tiger tanks of the Waffen-SS and the Wehrmacht's "named" units, such as the Grossdeutschland Division, Company Hummel, and Tiger Group Meyer. Based on combat diaries, the text tells the history of each unit, but most of the book is devoted to photos of the tanks and the men who manned them. It offers as unique and comprehensive a look at these lethal machines as is possible sixty years after World War II. Wolfgang Schneider, an officer in the German army, is the author of numerous articles and books on the history of armored vehicles. He is editor of the reference book Tanks of the World I.
Wolfgang Schneider, an expert on German armor, lives in Germany.
