From ‘Current Reports from overseas No.82’, I found this narrative of the ‘Raamsdonk Terrier Battle’ as featured in Panzerwrecks 18, pages 66-73: Introduction 1. This report of an action by a troop of Sherman tanks and an infantry platoon affords a good example of quick thinking and initiative on the part of individual tank commanders. […]
The last copy of Panzerwrecks 7 was sold this morning and will wing its way to its good home on Monday morning. It joins Panzerwrecks 12, and soon Panzerwrecks 9 in the ‘out of stock’ status. It’s not out of print though, as I may decide to reprint at a later date, but realistically speaking it […]

Over to Predrag: I was recently expanding one of my databases with information from several Waffen-SS documents, when I stumbled upon a familiar license plate number – SS-224 784. The source for my […]
Welcome to the latest version of the Panzerwrecks website. Why the overhaul? Primarily because the previous site was not ‘responsive’ for viewing on smartphones and tablets. As a result, the full desktop site was always served. This new site is responsive and easy to navigate on mobile devices. I took the opportunity to overhaul the colour palette, as the old ‘camo’ […]
Oops. It was bound to happen. It has. I forgot to thank an important contributor to the book: Martin Block. You should have been there in the credits Martin, my sincerest apologies. I have always tried to give credit where due, and in reality books such as these are the work of many minds.
Daniele Guglielmi, long-time ‘friend of Panzerwrecks family’ sent in some additional information regarding some of the subjects in Panzerwrecks 19: Yugoslavia. Over to you Daniele: Pages 10 and 11, one of the Semovente L40 da 47/32 is an early production (it had the side hatch, even if welded shut in the factory), the other one is […]
Hats off to Janez Čokl for correcting the location of the Jagdpanzer 38 on page 60 of Panzerwrecks 19: Yugoslavia. Over to Janez: I saw one location mistake in Panzerwrecks 19 (nice work). Photo of Hetzer on page 60 was taken in Celje, not in Maribor. (Google street view link) Probably was the same vehicle like those one […]
