LandCraft (11) Pakwagen SDKFZ 234/3 and 234/4 German Army Waffen-SS and Luftwaffe Units - Western & Eastern Fronts 1944-45

Product code:  65047MIL
Experience in the Polish and French campaigns had convinced the German high command of the value of fast-moving, armed reconnaissance vehicles. But it was realised that many of the early designs were too lightly-armed and development of a heavy eight-wheeled prototype resulted in the Sdkfz 234 series of armoured cars, the first of which entered service in late 1943. Built by the firm of Bussing-NAG, these sturdy and reliable vehicles were gradually up-armed and served in the infantry support rol...

Product code:  51935NAV
Seventy-five years after the end of the Second World War the details of Soviet ships, their activities and fates remain an enigma to the West. In wartime such information was classified and after a brief period of glasnost-openness the Russian state has again restricted access to historical archives. Therefore, the value - and originality - of this work is difficult to exaggerate. It sees the first publication of reliable data on both the seagoing fleets and riverine flotillas of the Soviet Navy...
