Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

• Action-packed stories of legendary tank soldiers in combat
• You-are-there approach lets readers relive the experiences of German panzer crews
• First time in English
With the same drama and attention to detail that made Panzer Aces (978-0-8117-3173-7) and Panzer Aces II (978-0-8117-3175-1) such thrilling reads, Franz Kurowski tells the stories of more German armored officers during World War II. Extensively researched, these gripping accounts follow panzer crews into some of the bloodiest engagements of the war, from the deserts of North Africa, the monumental battle of Kursk, and the hedgerows of France to frightening clashes in the black of night on the Eastern Front.

Biografía del autor

Franz Kurowski served as a reporter in the German army during World War II and has since written over one hundred books, including Panzer Aces, Panzer Aces II, and Luftwaffe Aces.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Short Biographical Summaries 26 de julio de 2010
Por Sci-fi and history reader - Publicado en

Franz Kurowski presents short biographical summaries of 18 German soldiers who earned the Knight's Cross in World War Two. Each chapter is 12 to 26 pages long and starts with an action scene describing one of the key battles they fought in. The chapter then describes the soldier's life background, how they entered military service and then what key leadership positions and battles they participated in. It is very interesting to read that many of the awardees served in the same unit or were led by a common commander, such as Erwin Rommel with the 7th Panzer Division in France 1940. Many of the accounts correspond to other chapters as the soldiers had served together at critical battles.

This book is not as detailed as Panzer Aces I or II, and is much shorter at 293 pages, but has many photos. Panzer ace Ernst Barkman's story is only 21 pages in length, but can be found in greater detail in his biographical book. Tiger tank ace Otto Carius' chapter is 22 pages in length, a mere fraction of his life story in comparison to his book titled Tigers in the Mud. In comparison, Panzer Aces II has 486 pages describing the entire career and detailed engagements of just six soldiers.

It is good being able to read a summary overview of the careers of these 18 remarkable soldiers, such as Heinz Guderian and Hermann Hoth. Both were heavily involved in the development of the Panzer Corps and both were relieved of command for disobeying H*tler's foolish orders to hold arbitrary ground at all costs. Armchair historians can debate what if more German Generals had the same courage as Guderian, Hoth, and Rommel to disobey similar orders and saved their soldiers from senseless encirclement and destruction.

This book does briefly explain the German perspective on how Panzer forces were developed after World War One and how their tanks were initially inferior to the T-34. Their main tank guns could not penetrate the T-34 of KV-1 at distance. It was only their ability to maneuver and attack en masse to get the disabling hit and follow-on close range shots to kill the better armored and gunned T-34.

Some armchair "historians" will disagree and state that the T-34 was inferior tank, but in 1941, it was superior to any other tank in armor, speed, maneuverability, and gun penetration until 1942. The German Panzer veterans who destroyed dozens of T-34s state this, who are we today to disagree with their accounts?

Good reading for those with an open mind, willing to learn from the German veteran perspective. Panzer Aces I and II provide much more detail on each soldier's career, almost like a biographical book similar to Audie Murphy's to Hell and Back (WW2) or Beyond Nam Dong by Roger Donlon (Vietnam).

Por Frederick L. Clemens - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
This book is 90% translated material from a 1966 book called "Panzer vor" by Karl Alman (one of Kurowski's pseudonyms). The list of panzer aces covered is almost identical to "Panzer vor" with a couple of the aces removed and a couple of others added - not sure why the change was made except maybe it was a way around the copyright on the original.
The translated book has the strengths and weaknesses of Kurowski's other books. Kurowski clearly has a lot of sources, perhaps including interviews, about the men to draw on, however footnotes are few and far between. One can not trust any of the quoted dialogues in the book, therefore it is more docudrama than history.
From my comparison of the first page of Barkman's chapter with the original German, it is a decent and readable translation.
If you don't have "Panzer vor" and you liked Panzer Aces I & II, you will like this book.

After reading Panzer Aces, 1 and 2, this was a must read for me and I was not disappointed. Although parts have been filled in, such as what some of the men said to one another, this was needed to prevent the book from being strictly a history book. One can feel the action, the cold and the heat that life in a panzer must have felt like and knowing that there must have been hundreds of panzer aces, I look forward to reading books, 4, 5, 6, etc.

Panzer Aces I: German Tank Commanders of WWII (Stackpole Military History Series)

The third release in the Panzer Aces series differs from the previous two as the book focuses more attention on the Commanders of the Panzerwaffe. Names such as Guderian, Hoth, Eberbach, Jahde and Kempf will be very familiar to those with an interest in the Panzerwaffe during World War Two history. The book tells the story of these famous soldiers, the divisions, formations and armies they fought and led. The stories are more about these leaders who shaped history in this era and their experiences during the some of the greatest armoured battles of World War Two.
The famous tank commander Otto Carius also appears in this book and will probably inspire you to purchase his book Tigers in the Mud. Most of the names that appear in the book are intertwined with the successes and failures of the German armoured divisions during the period of 1939 until 1945. The stories are all the more interesting as they are written and told by the perspective of the individual who where taking part in the conflict rather than in a strictly historical timeline perspective. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I have.

This is the third volume in a series bearing the title "Panzer Aces," written by Franz Kurowski. Although the presentation is somewhat formulaic, the subject matter is what counts. This particular volume details the exploits of many of Germany's most gifted armor officers and non coms. Many of the men whose lives and exploits are detailed in the volume were totally unknown to me, but will not be forgotten. It matters not at all that these men were at one time our enemies, but their bravery and devotion to their country really mattered. This volume features Adalbert Schulz, Walther Nehring, Herman Hoth,and Heinz Guderian; these men were really the leading practitioners of the art of mobile armored warfare. Guderian built the Panzerwaffe from scratch. Schulz and Hoth practiced it with consumate skill. This volume certainly merits reading. Highly recommended.
