A bit of research should have been regarding the title of the book: It should be Panzer Forward, not Panzers. The plural of panzer is panzer and not panzers. bit embarrassing for a book.

Well in German it's "Panzer vor" so translating it to English ad "forward" and with "panzer" being a borrowed word, using English plural form is grammatically acceptable.

Common usage of "panzer" in English is usually with an English plural form, not the German as it is with most borrowed words, except certain Latin forms.

Which are usually ignored in common usage anyway.

After all the great majority of people aren't aware that "media" is a plural noun.

This would have made a fantastic A4 hard backed book and I have no concerns about the title.
