These two are MUST-HAVES for Tiger I fans

Any of the books from the [link=http://www.amazon.com/Panzerkampfwagen-Medium-Tank-1936-44-Vanguard/dp/1855328453/ref=si3_rdr_bb_product/105-3911534-2806061]New Vanguard[/link] line of books are top-notch.

This is the most useful Tiger book I own. If someone told me "You can only have one book on Tiger tanks and we're burning the rest" This is the one I would keep. It simply rules all.
I can second that for the western Front book, fantastic quality pictures with just enough information to go with them. I haven't got the Eastern book yet but after reading the other I will most definitely be getting that one too.

another book I am reading is

"The World at Arms" The readers Digest illustrated history of World War II A very comprehensive history of the war through the reasons behind it to the very end, it'll take me a long time to get through it though.

I use Achtung Panzer 6 for a lot of reference material for the Tigers. It's a shame that a lot of the main text is in Japanese with just a small section written in English.
