Panzer Truppen by Jentz, Thomas L
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I got a brand-new copy for a very reasonable price. I bought volume II of this two-part series some 20 years ago. I believe it is collectable quality: I withheld the fifth star because the books limits to panzer units only, no motorized infantry, no assault guns, etc. But the title does say Panzertruppen, so that’s what I got. Thank you printers for making my set complete. One person found this helpful.
Both this volume and volume 2, are excellent sources of primary documentation. Both use war diary, and after-action reports to describe tactics and weapons evolution. As I said in a review of vol. The author assumes the reader has at least general familiarity with German operations, and knowledge of German WWII military terms and ranks. Probably not for a general interest reader. I think the book is very complete, with many data and historical references.
It comes with panzerdivision equipment in every major campaign, production data, operative status of the panzer units in most important battles. It is also very focused in the development and tactical use of the panzer units, with many interesting references of the situation of those units through the war. More of a facts and figures kind of book.
Excellent pictures, charts, tables, and operations histories. Buy both volume 1 and 2. You will want both. Superb data, highly recommended. This book tells about the development of the German Panzertroops before the WWII and of their use in the first half of the war. Since it is based on wartime reports there is much less afterthought than in most war books based on memories.
For example, it includes English translations of comments general-colonel Guderian made during the war, from German records. This book tells many interesting things to war history enthusiasts. This volume covers the period from the early s to It uses primary German sources that revealed the evolutionary stages of the German panzer formations, their weapons and numbers as the years rolled by.
The book also reflects on German perception of how they did, how their tanks performed and needs for changes. The book reflects the closeness to the source German material. The author expects the reader to have a fine tune knowledge of the German military prior to reading this book.
If you have to look up to see the difference between a Panzer 38 t to Panzer IVd, this book is probably not for you. The unit organization tables are done in the unfamiliar German symbolism instead of your usual NATO symbols so that can be confusing to the novice. The book seem to be written for people who wants a greater understanding of the German panzer formations and thier gradual metamorphosis. The second volume covers the second half of the war when the German forces were mostly on the defensive mode.
Overall, highly informative reading material, not for the casual reader since this book don’t exactly read like a best seller. Thomas Jentz has spent over 30 years reading original German source material to create this guide to the creation and formation of Germany’s tank force. Volume 1 covers the early phases from The key here is original. Jentz does not rely on anyone else’s material, using only war diaries, reports and technical manuals.
This is not a high level overview or grand strategy, nor is it a nuts and bolts review of each weapon system.
It is also not light reading. panzetruppen
Books by Thomas L. Jentz (Author of Panzertruppen)
This is very technically oriented, detailed history. Jentz sets out to tell the dates units were organized, what equipment they had, organization, tactics used US tankers will recognize many of these. The pages are high glossy quality binding. The text provides a wealth of information. You get to see how the Germans created and used their tank force. The interplay of politics, economics, and technology are covered. How tank units reported back to their leaders – what worked, what did not are shown in excerpts from the official records.
As a student of history, I admire the work and research that went into this book. This is a must have book for all serious armor historians and those who want to see step by step the evolution of the panzer and blitzkrieg. Highly recommended, top notch material. See all 10 reviews.
