Blitzkrieg Armor Volume 1Blitzkrieg Armor Volume One: The Western Front

by Tom Laemlein

This new series of photo studies focuses on the armored vehicles of the pivotal Blitzkrieg era (1939 through 1941) that set the stage for armored warfare throughout the conflict. Volume One covers the action on the Western Front (Belgium & France) in the spring of 1940. Many of these previously unpublished images of captured and wrecked Allied vehicles and of the tanks of the victorious Panzerwaffe, were taken by the troops themselves. This provides an outstanding visual reference for modelers and armored warfare historians of the desperate days of Germany’s stunning victory in France.
