This is book number 1 in Kagero Publishing's "In Combat" series. This book is the larger A4 or European size with high gloss paper and is 80 pages long that has 12 chapters. The pages are laid out with English on the left side of the page and Polish on the right. The first chapter is about the development of the base Panzer III, then it jumps to Ausf. (model/version) H. Each chapter deals with a different Ausf number up to Ausf N. The detailed about each model is very extensive and a few charts are included that show production numbers. There are two to three photos per page showing the Panzer III version being written about. Some of the photos seem to be computer enhanced to bring out details.

The eight middle pages are full color paint schemes of 16 vehicles. There are also two on the back cover. Six pages of technical line drawings are next. Tucked into these pages is a masking sheet with 1/35 scale stencils for tank number 421 and some Balkenkreuz (German vehicle crosses). This tank is one on page 40 and was used in the Battle of Kursk. The stencil is very well done and have sharp, crisp edges around the numbers. I am going to try it on a Panzer IV I am building now. There are loads of reference photos along with these color plates that will greatly help any modeler product a nice Panzer III.

I would like to thank Casemate Publishing and IPMS for the chance to read and review this nicely detailed book.
