Kursk The Greatest Tank Battle 5-16 July 1943

Product code:  48847MIL
In the early summer of 1943, following the German defeat at Stalingrad and the inconclusive battle at Kharkov, Hitler sought a decisive battle that would turn the struggle on the Eastern Front in the Germans' favour. Large numbers of new Panther and Tiger tanks were rolling off the production lines, and Hitler was convinced that German armour could turn the tide against the advancing Soviets on the Eastern Front. Despite the reservations of his generals, Hitler was determined this offensive take...

The Home Front in Britain Then and Now

Product code:  67973MIL
For nigh-on half a century, After the Battle has been exploring and photographing the battlefields of the SecondWorld War, but now it is time to look at events nearer to home. Following the fall of France in June 1940, Britain stood alone against Germany until the first American soldiers began arriving in Britain in January 1942. At that time the only active `Battle Front' was in North Africa, yet the Home Front played a vital role in preparing a secure base for the eventual liberation of Europe...

Designing The T-34 Genesis of the Revolutionary Soviet Tank

Product code:  58306MIL
When the German army launched Operation Barbarossa - the invasion of the Soviet Union - on June 22, 1941, it was expecting to face and easily defeat outdated and obsolete tanks and for the most part it did, but it also received a nasty shock when it came up against the T-34. With its powerful gun and sloped armor, the T-34 was more than a match for the best German tanks at that time and the Germans regarded it with awe. German Field Marshal von Kleist, who commanded the latter stages of Barbaros...

Tankcraft (20) Tiger 1 German Army Heavy Tank, Eastern Front, Summer 1943

Product code:  55827MIL
The Tiger I tank, probably the most famous German armoured vehicle of the Second World War, might have been a war-winning, break-through weapon if it had been produced in sufficient numbers and if it had been introduced earlier on the Eastern Front, before the balance of strength had tipped towards the Soviet Union. At the Battle of Kursk there were not enough Tigers to make a decisive difference and thereafter the Tiger was forced to play a mainly defensive role as the Wehrmacht struggled to wi...

Panzerwaffe Tarnfarben - Camouflage Colours and Organization of the German Armoured Force 1917 - 1945

Product code:  00880MIL
During the Great War, the assault tanks in the German Army merely played an anecdotal role. Due to the restrictions enforced by the Treaty of Versailles, the first training unit for armoured forces wasn’t organised (secretly) until 1933. The existence of the first three Panzerdivisionen of that new German Army was officially revealed in 1935. The armoured troops or Panzertruppen were an independent branch of the Army, with their own command. This allowed concentrating the tanks in divisions so u...
