Default RE: Tank Reference Books

Some excellent titles listed here, many of which I have in my library. A few I would add to the list and highly recommend are: "Soviet Tanks and Combat Vehicles of World War Two" By Zaloga, this is an oustanding book by one of the best in the business, long out of print and rather scarce in nice condition, but you can sometimes get reasonably good copies on ebay for around $25. Any of the series of books from Schiffer Military on the Panther and Tiger series by Jentz & Doyle are generally considered among the best available for their respective vehicles, they don't have any color plates that would be helpful for painters, but as pure references for the history, development, and technical details of the actual tanks, these are hard to beat. Another is "The Modelers Guide to the Tiger Tank - a Complete and Comprehensive Guide to Modeling the Tiger I and Tiger II" this should be in every modelers bookshelf, my only complaint is the text is very small and requires good eyes or strong reading glasses...LOL.
