The book arrived and I was very impressed with its quality and content! It was a joy just to have and flick thro as the pictures are worth getting this book for alone.

The book is a definitive guide to the history of the Sturmartillerie from its conception in 19335 up until the end of World War 2. The book also explains the development of the equipment used by them. All the major actions and battles are covered in great detail and written in a way that draws you in to the chapters.

The pictures many vehicle's and units of the Sturmartillerie are fantastic and most I had never seen published before.

I highly recommend this book to everyone with an interest in the World War 2 and Armored units.
