About the Book
This third Supplementary edition to the "PzKpfwIV at the front" series follows on from the information in "Barbarossa stowage" that identified unit specific stowage styles. The book takes a close up look at the PzIVs deployed specifically in PzRgt 27 during the fighting in 1941, looking in depth at the style of markings and stowage used by its three different medium Kompanies. There are 90 pages that include 89 period black & white photographs, many published for the first time and often showing the same vehicle from different angles. It concludes with a 6 page section on modelling a 1/35 PzIV from the 6th Kompanie. This section includes 15 full colour photos that show the building and correcting of Dragon's PzIV Ausf E VorPz kit.
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.
