Any suggestions on a book that covers all the variants? I hope it’s not the David Doyle text. Amazon lists it but it won’t let me actually buy it ( Amazon finally deemed me worthy and let me get it. I kept trying to add to me cart but was no bueno each time and finally it went in. )
Thanks. I just ordered it from Amazon and it finally let me get the David Doyle book as well.
Unfortunately, the books I consider best references are out of print and hard to get, Achtung Panzer Vol. 7 and the Panzer Tracts series on Panzer II (these may be eventually reprinted by Panzerwrecks)
Other than that, Wydawnictwo MIlitaria has two nice volumes as well
Thanks I’ll look into them. I hope the two I ordered show up. I have two more from Amazon that seem to be lost ,Hungarian Arms and Armor of WW2 and German Heavy Armored Cars. Both of which should have arrived last Monday.
Are you unable to order them directly from David’s website?
Didn’t know that was a thing until now. It’s bookmarked and now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to spend a couple of hours trying to figure how much money I’m going to give him.
I have found this book very helpful with lots of information on the Panzer II and Panzer I and variants.
Interesting that they include Bergepanzer II and Munitionspanzer, how is the covering of these variants? several photos?
Thank you… I’m curious. What does it say about headphone / intercom connections in the Panzer 1? I’m looking for a good book with that kind of information.
The Spielberger title, available from Amazon. Excellent technical and photo reference.
There are a few photos of the munitionspanzer but really know full description. No pictures of the bergepanzer II within the book.
The book only has a few interior photos of museum panzer Is and no mention of headphone/intercom connections.
Just a heads up . . .the American Heritage Museum in Hudson has the Littlefield collection, including the only Panther that is in working condition, as well as a Panzer I (fully restored). It might be helpful.
Hudson, MA. It is about an hour outside of Boston. It is a great museum except for the goofy colored lights that make it hard to photograph the tanks.
I don’t know if it’s really “fully restored”.
The turret traverse gear and hand wheel appear to be the real deal, but on the other side of the turret, the elevation gear seems to be completely missing.
Those two hand wheels should be connected to the MGs by Bowden cables. There’s no sign of them in the photos that I’ve seen.
The electrical connections between turret and hull seem to be missing, so the commander has no place to plug in his headphones.
Massachusetts. The museum has a huge collection of tanks. all in working order. They even have occasionally even allowing its customers to drive an M4 Sherman or an M24 Chaffee, Granted, they sell these opportunities. I love the place!
