About the Book
This first update adds 129 additional images to those already published in the five core volumes of the "PzKpfw IV at the front" series. The 80 pages are in a portrait magazine layout with most of them carrying two images to squeeze in as much content as possible while still keeping the image relatively large. The new images include:
7 Ausf A - including one being recovered in Russia.
17 Ausf B & C - including a "yellow" cross from the Polish campaign and a detailed series of 5 images showing the loading onto a trailer.
25 Ausf D & E - including 3 more showing groups of DAK vehicles with white road wheels.
3 more hybrids and 3 VorPz.
19 Ausf Fs - including a possible command version.
15 Ausf F2(G) - early G - including a number of images of long twisting aerial guard and flat recuperator sides.
21 late G&H - including 8 Bulgarian vehicles.
6 Ausf J - mostly late war wrecks.
2 turetless ammo carrier.
2 images of a late StuGIV with swinging schurzen - one of which is a close-up of hooded exhaust pipes.
1 early StuPa.
1 Mobelwagen with disc camo.
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.
