The Panzer-Jägers theme was always one of the major interest groups of the publisher. The Marder III series were a very important and interesting series which generated Nuts & Bolts Vol.'s 15, 17, 18. They accepted at this time that it was also historically important to include the Marder II as it was one of the early and proficient tank hunters.
However, the publisher also appreciated that their readers were interested in other important German WWII ground equipment so they had decided that a further volume would follow in the Panzer-Jäger family on the important "Marder II", but at a later date.
To keep the series diversified the publisher produced titles with different themes like Panzer-Artillerie and half-tracked transport etc. In the meantime they had received additional information/photos etc on earlier Panzer-Jäger vehicles and therefore they revised Nuts & Bolts Vol. 9 on the armoured RSO and Vol. 23 on the Panzerjäger I; together with a new Vol. 24 on the "Marder II" based upon the Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. D & E. Now they are proud to present Nuts & Bolts Vol. 31 concerning the „Marder II“ (Sd.Kfz. 131) on the chassis of the Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. A-C & F:
