[Sledgehammers] takes a refreshing approach to the topic of Tiger tanks, the author does his homework, he writes well enough, and he remains very even-handed in his descriptions of Tiger battalions in action and in his assessment of their effectiveness. Overall, this book should favorably impress most readers, and it's probably the sort of obscure classic that will remain very much in demand over the years by armor enthusiasts in general and Tiger buffs in particular. Recommended.

Excellent... The description of the performance and the technical weaknesses of the Tiger is in my opinion entirely correct.

A refreshing change...The true Tiger is revealed. Sledgehammers gets five out of five for well researched content, good presentation...and high degree of overall interest.
