About the Book
This is the first book solely dedicated to the TauchPz IV. It covers its use both prior to Operation Barbarossa on exercises and during the conflict on the Eastern front. The information includes detailed analysis of the different specification for each Ausf as well as the units that used and markings and stowage associated with them. There are a number of details revealed here that have never previously been discussed.
This volume contains: 98 period photos illustrating the vehicle in greater depth than ever before, the vast majority published for the first time, short appendix on the TauchPz III, diagrams and a section on modelling the vehicle to conclude the book.
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.
