Panzerwrecks 9 P59 – Pz.Kpfw.P40 737(i)

Stefano Di Giusto also enlightened us about the P40s on page 59: “The P-40s of Polizei-Panzer-Kp. 15 carried a number on the nose, exactly as the P40 on page 59; a series of photos of the company surrender inNovaraat the end of April 1945 are in Daniele Gugliemi’s book Italian tanks on German service.” So, […]

Panzerwrecks 9 P44-45 – Semovente 90/53

Stefano Di Giusto was kind enough to share an exact identification for the M41 90/53 801(i) (Semovente 90/53) on pages 44 &45 of Panzerwrecks 9. We knew that it belonged to 26.Panzer-Division because of the divisional insignia on the gunshield, but did not know which unit within the division. Stefano says: “As Daniele Guglielmi pointed […]

Panzerwrecks 9 P64-67 – Tiger I

A few people have noted that there is a tactical number on the turret side of the Tiger on page 64-67 of Panzerwrecks 9. Don Campbell says: “… the Tiger on pages 64-67 is our old friend ‘A2’ of 508 – the number is very faintly visible under the soot in the pic on p.66 […]

Panzerwrecks 9 – the missing Flammpanzers & a correction.

Most readers know that we try to give a subject as good a coverage as our page count permits. Sometimes photos are left out either because they do not tell any more to the story or in this case because the images are too poor. These two photographs were included on the original tech intell […]

Panzerwrecks 4 P33

Closure to this ‘case’ came with the purchase of an excellent little book called ‘Les chars de la Résistance by Luc Braeuer. Photographs on pages 38 & 39 show our Panther in FFI use bearing the name ‘Dauphiné’. The identifiers are the French roundel on the side of the gun mount, distinctive damage to the […]

Panzerwrecks 8 P44-45

Barry Crook’s capacity to notice the unnoticeable never fails to amaze. He pointed out what remains of the licence plate on the rear of the Wespe on pages 44 & 45 of Panzerwrecks 8. He says: “I should say too the last number is only a rough guess, as there’s virtually nothing to see. The rest of […]

Panzerwrecks 8 P89-91 – 63 years on

Normandy guru Fed Deprun was of immense assistance with information with which to caption the photos on Panzerwrecks 8. In fact most of the photographs were discussed by Bill and I, Barry Crook, Timm Haasler, Hans Weber and Fred in a collective manner. During one of these discussions, Fred showed us some images taken at […]

Fotos from the Panzertruppen – the missing photos.

While we publish as many photos as we can on a given subject, we cannot publish everything that is relevant. A good case in point is the series of photos on page 52 to 60 of Panzertruppen – The Early Years. The photos came from a veteran’s album and, among other things, covered his training […]

Panzerwrecks 5 P5-7

Back in October of 2008 we received a letter from Reinhard Pappenfuss of Dachau, Germany. He was able to tell us more about the Panzerdraisines parked up at Dachau, or was it Munich … He says: “In Panzerwrecks Vol. 5, pages 5 – 7 I can see interesting fotos, made in May 1945 at the […]

Panzerwrecks 6 P28-29

Further research on the ‘see through’ Jagdtiger on pages 28-29 narrowed down the areas where the 63rd Infantry and the 10th Armored divisions operated together. Both divisions crossed the Neckar River in the Wieblingen area around 30 March 45. The 63rd I.D. followed the 10th A.D. through the region north of the Jagst River and […]
