The Sturmgeschütz, or StuG as it is more popularly known, while conceived as self-propelled, infantry support artillery, in time, formed the backbone of Germany’s anti-tank operations during WWII. With more than 130 war-era photos, this volume chronicles the design, development, and deployment of the final three (of nine variants) of this famed and feared weapon. The material is arranged in four chapters, each focusing on a specific production model, or Ausführung, of the Sturmgeschütz. This volume focuses on the most plentiful model, the later war Ausf.G, as well as the Sturmgeschütz IV, and the similar, howitzer-armed Sturmhaubitze. Comprehensive tables reveal the details of performance, as well as technical specifications of each variant. A concise, easy to read text, and detailed photo captions expose the secrets of this iconic vehicle. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

David Doyle’s earliest published works appeared in periodicals aimed at the historic military vehicle restoration hobby. This was a natural outlet for the collector, whose collection includes ten Vietnam-era vehicles. By 1999, this included regular features in leading hobby publications, appearing regularly in US, English, and Polish magazines. Since 2003, over 100 of his books have been published. While some concern aircraft and warships, volumes on military vehicles, meticulously researched by David and his wife Denise, remain the genre for which he is most recognized. This recognition peaked in 2015, when he was presented the coveted Bart Vanderveen Award by the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, given in recognition of, “… the individual who has contributed the most to the historic preservation of military vehicles worldwide.”
