World War Two Photobook Series

Peko Publishing is not a new company in book publishing. If you check their web site  ( you can see a range of various books dedicated to WWII armor. I recently got their latest release “Panzer III on the battlefield” and I was pleasantly surprised with information that this book provides.

he Sturmgeschütz III (StuG III) assault gun was Germany’s most-produced armoured fighting vehicle during World War II. It was built on the chassis of the proven Panzer III tank, replacing the turret with an armored, fixed superstructure mounting a more powerful gun. Initially intended as a mobile assault gun for direct-fire support for infantry, the StuG III was continually modified, and much like the later Jagdpanzer, was widely employed as a tank destroyer.

Book is provided in landscape format with hard covers, on two languages; Hungarian and English. All photographs and descriptions are equally  printed on both languages.

You can see one of the most recognizable German tanks during war years, in different environment and seasons. Also, there are photos of repairs, combat and every day in a life of Stug. III  crew. A lot of photographs taken by US army after the battle, as a wrecks or captured vehicles.

For a modellers, great inspiration how to build it and make base or diorama for it. For historians, great info for one of most important German tanks from first years of the WWII.
