The Tiger Project: A Series Devoted to Germany's World War II Tiger Tank Crews by Schiffer Publishing

Fulfilled by our friends at Schiffer Publishing

The third book in the series covers the story of a panzer soldat from Germany's Wehrmacht of the Second World War. Günter Polzin served his brief military career with Schwere Panzer Abteilung 503, an outfit that was equipped throughout the war with Germany's vaunted Tiger tank. With a significant contribution from Martin Burmester, his story with Tiger-abteilung 503 is unusual, in that there has been little told from the perspective of a former member of the 2nd Company of 503. While there are several books available that cover 503, there has been limited coverage of the 2nd Company. From training to the harsh battles on the Eastern Front, on the invasion front in the West to the final battles in Hungary, and finally ending the war in captivity, both Polzin and Burmester were with 503 throughout the entire combat deployment of that unit. Combining their experiences with photographs, many previously unseen, and other, better-known photographs, a more complete picture of 503 is presented within the context of a Tiger tank veteran.[AuthorName]Edited by Dale Richard Ritter[/AuthorName][AuthorBio]Dale Richard Ritter was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, in 1970.
