An insight into the history, development, production and role of the most feared battle tank of the Secon World War.
The German Tiger I was the most feared battle tank of the Second World War. Its invincibility lay in its main 8.8cm gun and heavy defensive armour.
Using the successful Haynes Manual format, the Tiger Tank Manual gives a rare insight into acquiring, owning and operating one of these awesome fighting vehicles. The Tank Museum's Tiger '131' - the only Tiger I in the world that has been restored to full running order - is the Manual's centrepiece.
The Tiger's story is told in a wealth of detailed photographs and an authoritative text written by a team of experts from the 'Tank Museum, from its birth, development and production in wartime, to full details of the recent strip-down and rebuild of '131' and its Maybach engine.
As well as offer-ing unique insights into maintaining and driving the Tank Museum's Tiger 131, vivid personal recollections from wartime German tank crewmen also reveal what it was like to operate this 57-ton giant in combat.
