European history; 20th century history: c 1900 to c 2000; Spanish Civil War; Military vehicles
A comprehensive and up-to-date study of the combat and logistics vehicles which formed part of the German contingent that fought in the Spanish Civil War alongside the rebels.

The Panzer I, which so surprised the world in the Polish campaign and initially equipped the German Panzerdivisionen, was first seen in the Spanish Civil War, together with a wide range of war materiel such as anti-tank guns, flamethrowers, and so on.

This book looks at a wide range of vehicles: from the humblest motorcycle to the Horch staff car; from Opel 'Blitz', MAN Diesel, Mercedes, and Krupp trucks to the enormous Vomag 3LR 443 truck; not forgetting all the different types of military ambulances seen in Spain during the war years.

Never has such a comprehensive, painstaking and graphical study been made of vehicles used by the German contingent in the Spanish Civil War. The book contains over 500 top quality images, most of them previously unpublished, with each model that served in Spain perfectly identified. SELLING POINTS:

The Spanish Civil War was the training ground of the German military forces that struck across Europe in the Blitzkrieg of 1939-40.

A detailed analysis of the German Army's vehicles, equipment, weapons and their tactical development.

Includes helpful unit formation details.

Superbly illustrated throughout with a vast number of unique images and colour plates.

Ideal for modellers, war-gamers, vehicle enthusiasts and military historians alike. Translated by Steve Turpin White

Reviews for German Military Vehicles in the Spanish Civil War: A Comprehensive Study of the Deployment of German Military Vehicles on the Eve of WW2

It is a great reference for the enthusiast and an equally useful book for those who are interested in the Spanish Civil War. To my knowledge there has been no other book like this one before... --ModelingMadness.Com This is a great book both for historical information and reference photos. --AMPS Worth getting if you're interested in German machinery, or even machinery of the War/period. Well-written, well-illustrated, well-edited. --WW2 Talk This is a book that's really covering ground that hasn't been covered elsewhere.--Tank and AFV This is a great SCW modeler's reference -- at least from the German equipment perspective. Enjoyed it. --Historical Miniatures Gaming Society
