In the autumn of 2010, shortly before finishing Vol. 28 on the Maultier, the publisher decided not to include the armoured Maultier in Nuts & Bolts Vol. 28 to retain the normal number of 160 pages per volume; but also it was a weapons vehicle not purely a “mule” to transport loads.
The subject of the Panzerwerfer is very interesting, so it was decided that they would introduce this equipment in another volume of Nuts & Bolts, especially as a lot of the necessary work was already completed at that time. Initially they thought they could not fill a full volume of 160 pages with this subject. However, they did it and are proud to announce Nuts & Bolts Vol. 30 – with 208 pages. The most comprehensive volume in the series so far! This is because they decided not only to include the Panzerwerfer with its highly interesting story but also the towed Nebelwerfers. It is astonishing that the team of authors were able to uncover such a vast amount of new and previously thought to be lost information on all aspects of this equipment.
