WW2 German Panther tank books from specialist publishers and expert authors. We have books that cover most variants of the Panther; prototypes, gun tanks, through to the Jagdpanther and Bergepanther. More than any other German tank design, the Panther exerted the greatest influence on the battlefield and on the development of the modern battle tank. It has been the subject of popular discussion for more than 70 years. With a powerful 7.5cm L/70 gun and up to 110mm of armour plate, the Panther was justifiably feared on the battlefields on the Eastern and Western Fronts.
