Tiger 1 reference library questions

I am interested in purchasing a couple of books on the tiger 1 (limited budget) and was wondering what book you would start with? Please do not reference tiger 1 info as I always check it out prior to builds (alot of times prior to purchases) I love using you fine folks as a sounding board during builds.

Thanks for any suggestions



Uve fiest Tiger book or Spielbergers

For the technical part, I would start with Jentz&Doyle:

And for Operational history, Wolfgang Schneider two volumes:

Although hard to get, I still recommend Achtung Panzer Vol. 6


This, what Carlos posted, very much so!

+1 on @varanusk recommendations. There are many, many more options, but start with “Germany’s Tiger Tanks D.W. et al.”

Thanks guys really appreciate the suggestions - Carlos thanks for the suggestions and links

I own the first three books suggested by Carlos and they are very good. Also make sure to visit David Byrdan’s website, Tiger1.info. He is an expert on the Tiger I and provides detailed commentary on making available models more accurate.

While hard to find these days and often over priced, these two are outstanding building blocks for Tiger reference and model building in my experience.

The Jentz books mentioned are outstanding as well.
