This little treasure is the “how to” and “how not to” of German tank operations. Originally writte in in 1940 by the German army, it has a forward by Heinz Guderian and contains the “lessons learned” by the Germans during the Polish and French Campaigns. As suggested, it contains numerous illustrations of how to and now not to drive your panzer. I do need to apologize for some of the graphics. I was working with 1941 reproductions of the original artwork, I had very little, as a result to work with, and some of the illustrations are not very good.
