Panther V in Combat

by Bob Carruthers

Panther V in Combat Synopsis

The Panther V evidenced a number of problems in combat, and this was the proof of the rushed development programme that was made obvious from the events at Kursk. However, despite its disappointing battlefield debut, the Panther is frequently hailed as the best all round tank of the war. This fascinating study by Emmy award winning author and historian Bob Carruthers draws on a wide variety of combat reports and unique primary sources to weigh up the facts in order to produce the definitive single volume overview of a legendary fighting machine. Included are numerous examples of wartime combat reports from both Allied and German sources,additionally there are a large selection of extracts from the Pantherfibel, the original crew training manual. This superb book is essential reading for anyone interested in tank warfare during World War II.
