Ever since the Panzer units of the German Wehrmacht spearheaded the Blitzkrieg campaigns of 1939-41, these elite armoured troops have attracted particular interest. The worldwide interest attracted by the Panzer units has been shared by students and collectors of original uniforms and militaria, for whom the dramatically designed black Panzerjacke has always been particularly prized.
This is a remarkable record, in colour photographs, of Panzer, Panzer Aufklarungs, Panzer Pioniere, Sturmartillerie, Panzerjager and even Panzergrenadier uniforms, insignia and decorations from the world's leading private collections. The highlights are a number of groups of items named to particular individuals, together with their documents and wartime photographs.
