Product description

The German Tiger I was the most feared battle tank of the Second World War. Its invincibility lay in its main 8.8cm gun and heavy defensive armour. This book gives a rare insight into acquiring, owning and operating one of these awesome fighting machines, using the UK’s Tank Museum’s Tiger 131 – the only Tiger I in the world that has been restored to full running order.

As well as offering unique insights into maintenance and driving the Tiger, the book includes vivid personal recollections from wartime German tank crewmen and reveals what it was like to operate this 57-ton giant in combat.

Mike Hayton is workshop manager

Other members of the writing team include volunteers Darren Hayton and Stevan Case, Mike Gibb of the SdKfz Military Vehicle Foundation and David Schofield, a specialist in forensic science.
