The Allies' M10 Tank Destroyer and the Germans' Sturmgeschütz (StuG) lll were the unsung workhorses of the northwest European battlefields of 1944–45. While their mission was not principally fighting one another, their widespread use ensured their frequent encounters, from the Normandy Bocage, to the rubble-strewn streets of Aachen. The StuG lll was the quintessential assault gun, a low-slung, heavily armoured, turret-less vehicle intended to provide direct fire support for infantry formations, whilst the M10 3in Gun Motor Carriage was originally developed as a tank destroyer. However, by 1944 the 3in gun proved ineffectual against the most thickly armored German tanks, and was consequently relegated to infantry support too. Widely deployed in roles their designers had not envisaged, these two armoured fighting vehicles clashed repeatedly during the 11-month campaign, which saw the Allies advance from Normandy to the heart of the Reich. Fully illustrated with specially commissioned artwork, this is the story of their confrontation at the height of World War ll.

The Sturmgeschütz III proved to be one of the more significant German AFVs of World War II, with over 9,000 being produced up until April 1945. Originally designed in the late 1930s as a self-propelled infantry support gun, its role became more diverse throughout the war and it served as a tank hunter and in front-line Panzer companies. This title provides a detailed, step-by-step guide to modelling a 1/35-scale StuG III. It also provides a comprehensive list of available aftermarket products and kits of all scales. Key aspects such as finishing techniques, including painting and displaying your model are also covered. This guide forms part of Osprey Modelling 22 Modelling the Sturmgeschütz III ebook.

This book details the construction of four progressively more complicated builds in 1/35 scale, and also includes a gallery covering several different variants of the StuG III.

The workhorse of the German Army that swept across Poland, France and Russia, the Sturmgeschütz III saw service in all theatres of World War II, both in an infantry support role and as a tank destroyer. Cheaper and quicker to produce than a tank, the assault gun proved a remarkably effective weapon. Its design and development, production, capabilities and operational history are all closely examined, as is its tactical employment and organisation into units. This book uses original German combat and experience reports to show how the Sturmgeschütz fared in action, whilst also providing information on both retrofitted and production modifications.

The Sturmgesch tz rumbling forward into action is one of the iconic images of World War II. As mobile assault guns, the StuGs were essentially designed as infantry support weapons, but they also proved themselves as highly effective tank destroyers. Written by Emmy Award winning author Bob Carruthers this fascinating study encompasses the design, development and combat history of the StuG III and IV. Drawing on a variety of rare primary sources and photographs this outstanding study explains the role of the StuG in context and examines the combat records of the StuG aces such as Franz von Malachowski, and Knight's Cross holder Oberwachtmeister Hugo Primozic of Stug.Abt.667. Indispensable reading for anyone with an interest in armoured warfare.

Starting from the Blitzkrieg period, when Nazi Germany unleashed its mobile armored divisions into Poland, France and the Low Countries, German Armored Warfare of World War II captures the full might of the Panzerwaffe, Hitler's Panzer arm, from its early triumphs to its final demise. Featuring previously unpublished photographs, many of which have come from the albums of individuals who experienced the war firsthand, the book presents a unique and vivid record of German armor in action from 1939 - 1945. The photographs detail in turn the different elements that went into making up a fully fledged Panzer division: light tanks, main battle tanks, artillery, assault guns and anti tank destroyers, reconnaissance units, support vehicles, and of course the Panzergrenadiers. in depth descriptive captions accompanying the photographs also provide much historical information and facts about the events portrayed. Depicting action from the fields of France to the Russian steppes and rugged Italian terrain, German Armored Warfare of World War II is a captivating glimpse of one of the most effective weapons of war ever to have appeared on the battlefield.
