Odd, I could have sworn that this book had already been reviewed some time back... I seem to remember valuing the colour plates while simultaneously wondering about the cover model's strange shade of green. Hmmm.

Actually I think Frank's right. I have this very book in my collection and bought it on the recommendation of Darren's original review! The other Panther book in the series covers the fighting on the German border and into Germany, late 1944 to May 1945.

Yep, that's the "other" one Darren. BTW I note that you have reached the exalted rank of Sturmscharfuhrer!
