Germany’s Tiger tank, whether in the form of the Tiger I or later Tiger II (King Tiger), was the most feared tank of WWII. Despite production totaling fewer than 2,000 units, its heavy armor, its power, and perhaps the even more powerful Nazi propaganda machine ensured that the Tiger remains well known over seven decades after last being on the battlefield. Through more than 175 photos, this volume chronicles the design, development, and deployment of this famed German tank. Full-color photographs of rare surviving examples from around the globe augment carefully selected war-era photos in bringing this tank back to life. Comprehensive tables reveal the details of performance and technical specifications of each variant. A concise, easy-to-read text and detailed photographic captions expose the secrets of this iconic tank. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

David Doyle’s earliest published works appeared in periodicals aimed at the hobby of historic military vehicle restoration. This was a natural outlet for the collector, whose collection includes 10 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.”
