The ever-expanding Images of War series covers a vast range of topics and this book looks at the contribution Germany’s light tanks played in World War Two. From initially being involved in the blitzkriegs against Poland and France, their role changed as the war went on and fighting spread to other theatres including Africa and Russia. German engineers continuously worked to modify existing light tanks and develop new models so that come the end of the war in 1945 a range of vehicles like tank destroyers and anti-aircraft variants had been produced.

Verdict: An excellent reference source for historians, modellers and military vehicle enthusiasts with an interest in World War Two German armour.
