Panzer Tracts No.18: Panzerkampfwagen 38(t)Ausf.A to G and S. Production, Modification, and Operational History from 1939 to 1942
With Panzer Tracts No.18, the Panzer Tracts team have compiled an accurate record of the features of each Pz.kpfw.38(t) Ausführung. The correct pieces of the puzzle were found through hard work, research trips to measure and study the survivors, close attention to detail, and help from friends.
The authors spent over a thousand hours meticulously measuring and drawing all the features of surviving Pz.Kpfw.38(t) chassis and turrets to create accurate four-view drawings of the Ausf.B, C, D, E, F, and S in addition to six-view drawings of the Ausf.A and G. Extra effort was expended to draw details on the chassis and belly.
As is their high standard, Panzer Tracts are based solely on the content of primary source documents.
The real value of the Pz.Kpfw.38(t) can be learned by reading the experience reports written by unit commanders close to the time when the actions occurred. This 76-page book is illustrated with 50 drawings and 66 clean & rare photos with captions that correctly identify the external characteristics of each Ausführung.
