The fourth volume of the series covers the late war versions of the PzKpfwIV from Ausfs G & H through to the final J. Containing 90 original photos from the front with detailed captions, the majority of which are previously unpublished. All are taken from my own collection and cover all fronts, including a rare colour image, images of F2(G)s upgraded to H spec and the wider Ostkette being worn. Also new research on type and date of G roof armour.
The 3 visual diagrams in this volume (one for each Ausf) are particularly helpful for the complex and multiple changes related to this fraught period of the war. As in the Vol 3 the diagrams bring together dates, production numbers and descriptions of changes over the period to create a handy one stop reference. This volume concludes with a bibliography that covers the whole series.

This series of books (PzKpfwIV at the front: from 8wheels-good Publishing) is an exploration of the development of the PzIV, the only tank to be in uninterrupted mass production for front line service from the first to the last day of WWII. They are made up entirely from images of my own original photographs that I have collected over the last 10 years. The small profit made on each book will be put back into enlarging and preserving the collection so more titles can be added and images shared. Each volume contains fully captioned images, tables where appropriate and details from the reverse of the photographs. The tables are a collection of dates from all the main references available, existing museum vehicles and photographs which can be dated. They are born from my own frustration of endless trips to the books case to cross reference different sources and the wish to create a one stop reminder. I hope that they will be appealing to historians, wargamers and modelers alike.
