Summary

The Sturmartillerie was a key part of Germany's armored arsenal throughout World War II. Its armored assault guns were designed to support the artillery on the battlefield, largely using the purpose-built Sturmgeschütz infantry support gun.

This new and exhaustive study will detail the development and operational history of the machine's innovative forces, as well as describe how its role and the tactics it employed changed through the glory years of Blitzkrieg to the desperate defense of the last years of the war. It will also describe the technical development and evolution of the vehicles employed and include combat action reports and excerpts from interviews with veterans.

Author Biography

A German national, Thomas Anderson is a specialist in the German armored fighting vehicles of World War II. He has spent decades trawling European archives to discover little-known facts and never previously published photographs of the might of the Blitzkrieg. A modeler, he regularly contributes to popular modeling and historical magazines around the world. He has a three-volume history of Sturmartillerie/Sturmgeschütz in German, which is due for release in English in the next year.
