24. Juli 2012 General Military
The German Panther tank was almost certainly the most elegant design of WWII. It embodied a balance of firepower, armor protection, and mobility unmatched by any other tank of the period. Yet, it was not the war-winner it might have been. Author Mike Green examines the disparity between the potential of the Panther design and the actuality of the fielded Panther tank in his new book. Though many viewed the Panther as an engineering masterpiece and a technological breakthrough, the Panther failed to meet expectations on the battlefield, thereby crushing Hitler's dreams of world domination. Green explores the evolution--and devolution--of the Panther, providing keen insight and new reasons for its ultimate failure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ecellent 27. September 2012
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the type of book I really like. The book introduces the German Panther V tank of World War II in all its variants. Step be step alle the major parts and functions and many of the lesser parts are introduced. The technical and functional description is supported by assessments from British and US evaluations as well as German tankers' eye witness accounts, by historic photos and colour pictures from restored Panther tanks as well as by some occasional grafics.
As interested layperson and modeller I now understand the functioning of the Panther and its much better than before.
But the best of this book is that it conveys all the drama of the discussions, if this tank was the best of its generation or if it falls short of this objective, due to its technical flaws.
This book is a must for every tanker freak.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A useful new book on the Panther 2. August 2012
Von Hedgehog6 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Few tanks have had as many books written about them as Germany's PzKw V "Panther", and many will be wondering if anything could be added by another. Mr. Green clearly asked himself this question and decided that the answer could only be "Yes" if a different approach were taken. In this useful volume, he goes through the Panther, crew position by crew position, system by system, in some cases component by component, and explains its function and operation in simple lay terms. Mr. Green's explanations of technical terms and characteristics of tank design are a great feature of this book. Too many other works either skip over this stuff or assume that you know it.
To assess the Panther's strengths and weaknesses, he draws extensively on British, American and Russian evaluations from both wartime and post-war analyses. These are complemented by some interesting remembrances of Panzer force veterans. Differences between the various Ausfuhrung are explained, again usually in functional terms. There are also brief chapters covering the Jagdpanther, Bergepanther and even Panther turret pillboxes.
Mr. Green was involved the restoration of the Littlefield Collection's Panther and he has made good use of his access to this vehicle. Clear and detailed color photographs are a particular strength and will be very useful to any modeler. The interior of this vehicle is particularly well covered. Color coverage also extends to other restored survivors.
One thing that this volume does not have, however, is any previously unpublished WW2-era pictures of its subject. All the period pictures will be familiar to experienced readers.
This book does not replace Thomas Jentz's authoritative book on the Panther and the accompanying Panzer Tracts, but it does provide a useful supplement and I fully recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Affordable Panther Book 29. August 2012
Von Hans Beerbaum - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a useful edition to the Panther tank bookshelf. Some of the information presented will be familiar but the Greens add a new depth of understanding of the components of the vehicle. Most interesting is a series of Allied evaluations of Panther ammo, transmission, engine, suspension, etc.
The book is loaded with new color photographs of surviving tanks, both as memorials as well as working models held by various governments and museums. There are quite a few survivors, compared to the Tiger.
I never tire of seeing photos of knocked out tanks and there is a nice selection of such photos, along with stories by crewmen and "enemy" battle reports. Presumably all the wartime photos of Panthers have been published so there is nothing new in those that are presented. They're a minority of the images, however.
Pertinent comparisons are made to the Panther's main battlefield opponents--the Sherman and the T34. Comparisons of the running gear, engine and transmissions are interesting and a discussion of Panther ammunition, compared to US and Soviet ammo is instructive. The Germans had a way of building in real quality sometimes. Sometimes not, as the discussion of the transmission showed. Many Panthers broke down and were abandoned rather than lost in combat.
It was interesting to read of the effort made to disguise several Panthers as M10 tank destroyers for the Battle of the Bulge.
Technical issues that were new to me were an explanation of "live track" vs dead track," evaluations of technical issues by the restorers of the Littlefield Panther, over-gearing of the tank, as required by the German technical office and many, many other topics.
If someone was looking for one technical book on the Panther, this would be a good candidate. I recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen review of "Panther" by Michael Green 17. August 2012
Von Flame Bravo 6 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Once again Michael Green has produced an outstanding work on the history of armor. I believe it to be his best work to date and I am very much looking forward to his next book on the Patton tank which is scheduled to be released in September 2012. What most readers will soon realize is the great attention to detail and historical authenticity of his work. As a USMC tanker and as a company commander in combat operations in vietnam with command of 22 M48a3 Patton tanks and 3 M67 flame tanks (Company Commander of B Co. 5th tank Battalion, 5th Marine Division deployed with 1st Marine Division) during that war I was greatly interested in the development of the Panther tank which dramatically effected the design and production of our main M48 battle tank during my time of active service. Mr. Green was also part of the late and famous tank collector Jacques Littlefield's restoration of a Panther tank pulled from an eastern european Polish bog which was restored over a 5 year period to its exact specifications and detail by Mr. Littlefield's team at the Littlefield private museum at Portolo California. I would estimate that from that exacting restoration experience which has been the subject of a Military Channel production and the extensive research done by Mr. Green to guarantee absolute authenticity for the project when coupled with his great skill as a writer that "Panther" will be judged a masterpiece in military writings.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great comparison of WWII medium tanks versus the Panther 21. September 2012
Von larsodin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a well written and wonderfully illustrated book with good diagrams and photos.
I liked the technical information regarding all aspect of the Panther's planning, development, teething problems, final product, successes and failures. The Panther was a sophisticated design well executed by skilled engineers and fabricators. The comparisons with the Sherman, T-34 and other tanks in actual combat were very eye opening. The photos and narratives from the actual British, American and Russian gun tests on captured Panthers showing the armour's condition after various hits by many types of tank and anti-tank guns are pretty conclusive as to the success of the Panthers design. The actual interviews of German tank crewmen and their experiances with the Panther against various enemy tanks and the interviews with British, American and Russian tank and anti-tank gun crew experiances against the Panther were very telling. Seeing in writing that the Allie's and Soviet tankers would have wished to have the Panther rather than their own tells a lot of the story of WWII tank warfare. Really a good reference book for any armour afficianado. This book has more original photos than I have ever found about the Panther.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Panther book review 15. August 2012
Von Charles K. Kliment - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
During the past thirty years many books about the German Pz.Kpfw.V PANTHER have been written. The new book of Michael and Gladys Green "Panther German Quest for Combat Domination" is a very valuable addition to the Panther library. This fairly large book (280 pages) describes in detail the reason this tank was needed, its development, its advantages and faults, its first baptism with fire in the battle of Kursk in 1943, its further developments and improvements and how it became Germany's main battle tank in 1944 both in West and East.

The technical description is very detailed and describes firepower, protection, mobility; and presents many excellent photographs of the exterior and interior of these tanks, both from combat and from restored vehicles. Combat reports from both German and Western sources are presented, accompanied by many beautiful combat photographs. Finally, the various variants of the basic tank, such as tank hunter, recovery vehicle, and even fixed fortifications, using Panther turrets, are described in detail, again supported by many photographs.

All in all, this book is highly recommended for everybody interested in German armor in the Second World War.
