How did partisans improve the firepower of the Somua S35? And where did it end up? Who was ambushed at Vukov Klanac? What vehicles did they lose? Why did a German Panzer unit pose as Allied tankers? Where did the Yugoslav Army collect and overhaul captured German AFVs? The answers to these and other questions are to be found here in Panzerwrecks 19, with 151 rare and unpublished large-format photographs sourced from around the world.
Lee Archer and WW2 Yugoslav historian Bojan Dimitrijevic join forces to show the wrecks and captured vehicles from the German forces in Yugoslavia in World War 2. Don’t expect Tigers and Jagdpanthers – they were not issued to units in the Balkans. 151 photos chosen for the interest and rarity are backed up by useful captions with the when, why & how answered (where possible). In the house style, Panzerwrecks 19 is softcover, section sewn for durability and printed on quality paper.
