The 5th Panzer Regiment was well drilled from peacetime training by the time it was called into action in Poland in 1939, and after the Battle of France in 1940 it took part in some of the most famous tank confrontations of the war in North Africa as part of Rommel's Afrika Corps. Including many contemporary photographs and first-hand accounts, this book presents a history of Panzer-Regiment 5 from its formation until the end of 1941.
