Excerpts of Reviews

“[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.”

“Well written, reasonably priced, and offers an insightful professional assessment for military historians...”

—The Journal of Military History


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

—Fritz Langanke, former Panther company commander in the 2nd SS-Panzer Division and recipient of the Knight's Cross.


“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.”

—Broadsword Military Magazine


“Most readable...recommend[ed] to anyone interested in armoured warfare.”

—ModelArt Australia magazine


“This detailed, yet readable study, enhanced by fascinating photographs and superb maps deserves to be on every tank warfare devotee's bookshelf.”

—WWII History magazine
