While there have been many books published on more popular vehicles such as the Tiger, the Panzer IV has received little attention. This great book goes a long way to rectifying that.

The size is an added plus: it's small enough to have on your workbench as a reference without becoming a space liability.5/5(7).

With detailed captions, text and illustrations the book tells the story of the technical development of the Panzer IV and the numerous variants that went into production, and it describes how it evolved from an infantry support vehicle to become the PANZER IV book of the Panzer units/5(15).

For example, in his book that covers the Panzerkampfwagen III (published the same year), Anthony Tucker-Jones denigrates the Panzer IV, downplaying the value of the short cm (75mm) L/24 KwK gun it started with as unsuited for tank versus tank combat, using pick-and-choose commentary for the long 5cm (50mm) gun later mounted on the Panzer III /5(2).

To my knowledge, these are all the different editions of the Spielberger Panzer IV book: Der Panzerkampfwagen IV und seine Abarten (, pages, red/yellow cover) - Panzer IV & Its Variants (, pages, red/yellow cover) - Begleitwagen Panzerkampfwagen IV (, pages, red title) - Panzerkampfwagen IV and its Variants (, pages, green title on.

Often referred to as a workhorse the PzKpfw IV is certainly not a glamorous beast but from North Africa to the Eastern front it was a ubiquitous fixture on the various battlefields of WWII.

Using archive and original photographs to lay down a visual time line for this Panzer’s development, the book takes a historical overview of this.

The book shows how the Panzer IV evolved and describes how the Germans carefully utilized all available reserves and resources into building numerous variants that went into production and saw action on the battlefield. It depicts how these formidable tanks were adapted and up-gunned to face the ever increasing enemy threat/5(12).

With detailed captions, text and illustrations the book tells the story of the technical development of the Panzer IV and the numerous variants that went into production, and it describes how it evolved from an infantry support vehicle to become the backbone of the Panzer 4/5(1).

However, Spielberger had reissued some years ago his "Panzer IV and variants" book in a new manner so this doesn't show all variants again.

This reissue only reflects the Panzer IV itself. Nevertheless no discussion, if you need to know the backgrounds of Panzer IV. Soviet tankman Grigory Panezhko, in his book Notes of a Soviet Officer (Записки советского офицера) recalls the first meeting with the German Panzer IV tank in June “We froze when we saw the ugly, monstrous tanks of bright yellow tiger color appearing from Sitno gardens.

They slowly rolled in our direction, sparkling with tongues of shots.”. The Panzer IV Ausf.A had a turret ring with a diameter of mm. This turret ring was provided with ball bearings which would allow the turret to rotate freely.

The small opening between the turret and the superstructure was protected with angular shaped deflectors. Rear view of the Panzer IV turret, with the two machine gun ports. Nicholas, It's only my IMHO.

I think, that in this time there is NO ONE full detalization book about Pz IV. Of course - Spielberger/Jentz books are good, but in this moment there is a more questions, than answers. The Panzer IV/70 (A) designation is the most commonly used in the literature today.
