At the forefront of the German Blitzkrieg of World War II was the Panzerwaffe, the tank arm that initially swept all before it. German Panzers in World War II is a highly-focused, closely-detailed look at how the Panzerwaffe worked, and how German armored warfare evolved from 1939 until defeat in 1945.

The book examines the organization and strength of the German tank forces that took part in each major German campaign launched during the war, from the first thrust into Poland to the last ditch gamble of the Bulge offensive. For each campaign, it describes the panzer forces used, giving strengths and orders of battle for the formations, along with maps of the action and an examination of the panzer forces participation.

Illustrated with photographs of the panzers in action and detailed campaign maps, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in armored warfare--particularly its changing role in the German armed forces as the tide of World War II turned against them.
