Good review as always Darren. The only comment I would make is touched on by your review, namely that this follows on from other books by the author on the Panther, of which I think there are only another 2. The same is true of his books on the Tiger, of which there are four. The author does have a tendency to refer to the earlier books in the series and cross reference them, leaving out detail on the basis that has already been covered thereby making it difficult to regard them as standalone books. As I have them all anyway, it does not particularly bother me but I can see that it would be an issue for someone who is only interested in one particular area or campaign. Otherwise this book is well up to the standard of the others in the series, and collectively the books will build up to a comprehensive study.

A very good point that I had not considered.

My personal reference library is large enough that I often acquire books merely for a couple of unique or interesting photos. This series fits in with that objective.
