KAMPFPANZER MAUS: The Porsche Type 205 Super-Heavy Tank
In 1944, the Maus giant battle tank, weighing almost 190 tons, was supposed to help turn the Wehrmacht's fortunes of war on the Eastern Front. Just two prototypes of this monster were delivered, for its undeniable advantages-tremendous firepower and virtually impenetrable armor-were outweighed by the disadvantages of its slowness, excessive use of materials in construction, and fuel consumption so high that it was, by that time, far beyond the Germans' ability to supply. The book includes the complete operating instructions for the tank's crew!
Sized 8.5x11 inches with 328 color and b/w photos.
