The huge success of the PzKpfw 38(t) tank quickly led to thoughts of turning it into a self-propelled gun. The chassis was well suited for this and the Marder III was born. This book provides a complete view of the PzKpfw 38(t) chassis during the Second World War.
The 38(t) became the chassis for a wide variety of self-propelled guns, ranging from 20mm to 149mm in size. Along with this range of weaponry came a wide variety of color schemes, as these vehicles found their way into just about every front during the Second World War. Interestingly, while the PzKpfw 38(t) found its way into the armies of many European countries, the self-propelled guns remained mainly a German vehicle. This is reflected in the color profile section, with all but one being depicted in German markings (the remaining one is Czech).
Scale drawings accompany the large selection of photos, giving an excellent visual outline of the life of the self-propelled guns based on the Panzer 38(t) chassis. In addition to this is an extremely well-written text, again in both Czech and English, covering both the technical differences between the variants and the operations of the vehicles.
