Location of Panther in Panzerwrecks 2 identified by Ronny August!

Recently we received an email from Ronny August regarding one of the Panthers in Panzerwrecks 2. Over to you Ronny: In your very excellent series “Panzerwrecks”, I’ve found in PW 2 page 85, the picture of a Panther tank of I./Pz.Rgt.29 „Müncheberg“. The location there is given as „in a suburb of Berlin“. I think […]

Panzerwrecks 13 – Italy from an American Unit’s Perspective

When working on a Panzerwrecks, there is a great deal of material that hits the “editing room floor,” as features expand and contract, photos are rearranged, new information comes to light, or space considerations simply squeeze out text. Panzerwrecks 13: Italy 2, was no exception, but it seemed a shame to let the material go to […]

Real Life Panzerwrecks – Sd.Kfz.251/9. Falaise Gap survivor

Nicolas Leloup contacted me back in December 2011 regarding the Sd.Kfz.251/9 seen behind the Panther in the boneyard at Saint-Lambert sur Dives, and shown in all its glory in the rear gatefold of Panzerwrecks 11: Normandy 2. Here is what he had to say: … I also own a collection of WWII collectibles and especially german Sd Kfz; […]

Panzerwrecks 13: StuG IV hinged visor

Martin Cavell contacted me recently to share a snippet of information that might be of interest to readers of the series. Over to you Martin: The Stug IV on p.12, I noticed for the first time that the driver’s visor’s sunshade/rainguard is hinge-connected to the visor’s armoured guard, and in this photo you can see one sunshade […]

Panzerwrecks 13, Field Notes from Tom Laemlein on Pages 78-82.

Looking over the dug-in derelict Panther (was it really derelict, or just misunderstood based on social norms and mores of the time?) on pages 78-82,   a) I think the armored roof over the driver’s compartment was removed, not blown off.  This would allow for much easier entrance and exit from the Panther now slightly […]

Panzerwrecks 13: General corrections & updates from Daniele Guglielmi

I received an email from my friend Daniele Guglielmi, author of many Italian theatre books, with a few corrections and observations. Over to you Daniele: Page 1, you can see at lest three types of tyres on the AB41s: two of Celerflex models (taken from trucks), and Artiglio di sicurezza (run-flat, very rare). It’s possible […]

Panzerwrecks 13 P42-45: Location of Elefant on Google Earth

Google Earth or Google Maps can prove useful tools for finding the locations of wrecks, assuming that you have some information to start with. A case in point is the Elefant destroyed in Soriano nel Cimino, pictured on pages 42-45 of Panzerwrecks 13: Italy 2. A good match was found on Via Santa Maria. Click […]

Panzerwrecks 9: P44/45 Unit ID Confirmed

Martin Block emailed us with confirmation of the unit for the M41 90/53 801(i) on pages 44 & 45 of Panzerwrecks 9: “These days I was approached by an Italian researcher who had some questions about the II./Pz.Rgt. 26 in September 1943. Searching for answers to his questions I was browsing through the ‘Zustandsberichte’ of the […]

Panzerwrecks 11: Normandy Marders: Unit and Location Identification from Niels Henkemans

The vehicle on p.21-23 matches a vehicle that was destroyed near Isigny, [and points to] Pzj.Abt.352. Shots of a Panzerjager 35R(f) at the same dump support a link with 352.Inf.Div. as Schnelle Brig. 30 fought with that division from the beginning of the invasion. Page 52: It is certain the vehicle was photographed at the […]

Panzerwrecks 8: Corrections and Clarifications from Niels Henkemans

Niels Henkemans was kind enough to share some of his expertise on the Normandy campaign with us: “The Stu.Gesch. on p.32 and 33 clearly belonged to Stu.Gesch.Abt.1243 (the renamed 2./Pzj.Abt.243) as it was the only formation with those vehicles in the area. You can also ask Martin about this as we have been discussing this […]
