Prices of all PeKo Publishing ‘on the Battlefield’ books will increase to £25.99 from 1 November 2016. This is the publisher’s decision and is based on the GBP to HUF exchange rate. PeKo’s other titles will remain the same price. Thinking of buying one? Bag one before 1 November.
Predrag Blanusa touched base a couple of months back, with useful nuggets of information about the RSO on page 73 of PW1. 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 as those on […]
Rudi Schoeters dropped me a line a wee while back (March!) about some of the vehicles in Panzerwrecks 16: Bulge, and only now do I get the time to add his information to the blog. Over to Rudi: Page 37 The Pz.Beob.Wg.III in Houffalize: the top left pic shows clearly that this vehicle has two different […]
Perry Rowe got in touch with an update as to the location of the photos on pages 86-89 of Panzerwrecks 13: Italy 2. Over to you Perry: I was just looking through this again and noticed the caption to the series of pics pp86-89. Daniele Guglielmi has wrongly ascribed these to Salerno in Sept ’43 […]
Back last June I posted comments about whether or not American soldiers could recognize tanks as being German, based solely on the sound of their motors. While it seems that they couldn’t, I did find the following story from the February 20, 1945 edition of “The Railsplitter,” the unit newspaper of the 84th Infantry Division, […]
Just realized that I made a near-perfect “Now” picture of the Middelburg Stadthuis on p.55 in PW18 when I was on holiday in the Netherlands in August this year. It lacked the situational awareness that I had seen the picture a month before in your pdf-file. But the penny dropped when flipping through the book. […]
