About the Book
A pictorial journey through the PzKpfwIV ausfs F, F2(G) & early G.
Containing 80+ original photos from the front with detailed captions, the majority of which are previously unpublished. (24 of the F and the remainder are F2(G)s.
All are taken from my own collection
and captioned, including original evidence and description of items not previously discussed in other publications (such as initial style recuperator housing). Most images cover the Eastern front, including the summer offensives in 42, and North Africa.
This volume also contains a visual diagram to help understand and visualise the complex changes related to this period of this famous vehicles production. The diagram includes dates, production numbers and descriptions for 17 changes over the period, allowing you to cross reference, features with dates and save flicking through your library to find a specific change indicated within the text. Thus creating a one stop reference.

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.
