The Sturmgeschu?tz rumbling forward into action is one of the iconic images of World War II. As mobile assault guns, the StuGs were essentially designed as infantry support weapons, but they also proved themselves as highly effective tank destroyers.Written by Emmy Award winning author Bob Carruthers this fascinating study encompasses the design, development and combat history of the StuG II and IV.Drawing on a variety of rare primary sources and photographs, this outstanding study explains the role of the StuG in context and examines the combat records of the StuG aces such as Franz von Malachowski, and Knight’s Cross holder Oberwachtmeister Hugo Primozic of Stug.Abt.667. Indispensable reading for anyone with an interest in armored warfare.This book is part of the ‘Hitler’s War Machine’ series; a new military history range compiled and edited by Emmy Award winning author and historian Bob Carruthers. The series draws on primary sources and contemporary documents to provide a new insight into the true nature of Hitler’s Wehrmacht.
