Kübelwagen and Schwimmwagen
A Visual History of the German Army's Multi-Purpose Vehicles
The German Army's equivalent of the Jeep in the Second World War was based on the recently developed Volkswagen, modified for simpler and more rugged construction and better off-road performance. This volume explores the Kübelwagen and its amphibious version, the Schwimmwagen, with detailed pictures of museum examples and archive photographs of the vehicles in action.
German Panzer II
A Visual History of the German Army's World War II Light Tank
Initially designated as a farm vehicle to avoid scrutiny of German rearmament, the first Panzer II tanks were delivered in 1936 and then employed extensively in the early years of the war in North Africa and the Eastern Front. This portfolio presents contemporary photographs, with detailed captions, of each of the ten variants of the design in action in various theatres of the conflict.
German Motorcycles of WWII
A Visual History in Vintage Photos and Restored Examples, Part 1
In the mid 1930s the German Army developed specialized armed motorcycle units attached to infantry regiments, but the bikes proved unsuited to extreme conditions and after 1943 were used mainly for communications. This volume uses wartime archive photographs as well as modern colour images of preserved bikes to explore the various BMW and Zündapp models used during the period.
