Book Review – StuG III and IV

StuG III and IV 44-45 Book Review

StuG II and IV, German Army, Waffen – SS and Luftwaffe, Western Front, 1944-1945.

This Pen & Sword Title, 19th in the Tank Craft series, by Dennis Oliver is both focussed and detailed, being aimed squarely at modellers. It succeeds in its aims with a wealth of detail and some pretty stunning eye-candy to illustrate the book. Production values are high, and the subject is well researched. There is a wealth of pictorial information in the book, some surprising, such as a picture of a Panzer III converted to an assault gun, with liberal use of concrete on the upper hull.

The book splits evenly between brief unit histories, orders of battle, camouflage schemes and details of production variants in the first half, followed by examples of available kits and assembled examples.

Practically any modeller or wargamer planning to build a StuG covered by the title will benefit from having this book on their bookshelf.
