Hi All,

Being a bit of a Tiger nut and book collector here's the books I use for Tiger references (in addition to the usual Osprey selection), lots of well researched detail, photos and drawings, worth every penny:

Authors Thomas L. Jentz & Hilary L. Doyle, published by Schiffer Publishing:
Germany's Tiger Tanks D.W. to Tiger I: Design, Production & Modifications, ISBN 978-007643-1038-6
Germany's Tiger Tanks VK45.02 to Tiger II: Design, Production & Modifications, ISBN 0-7643-0224-8
Germany's Tiger Tanks Tiger I & II: Combat Tactics, ISBN 0-7643-0225-6

Author Thomas L. Jentz, published by Schiffer Publishing:
Germany's Tiger Tanks Series: Tigers At The Front, ISBN 978-0-7643-1339-4

Author Wolfgang Schneider, published by Stackpole Books:
Tigers In Combat I, ISBN 978-0-8117-3171-3
Tigers In Combat II, ISBN 978-0-8117-3203-1

Authors Dr. Franz-Wilhelm Lochmann, Richard Freiherr Von Rosen and Alfred Rubbel, published by Stackpole Books:
The Combat History of German Tiger Tank Battalion 503 In World War II, ISBN 978-0-8117-3484-4

I also have a set of 1:16 scale drawings by Waldemar Trojca, titled Sd.Kfz.182 Pz.Kpw.VI Tiger Ausf.B "Königstiger", ISBN 83-919215-7-3. There are three sets of drawings covering the Porsche turret version, the production series turret and production series turret command tank, very handy! :thumbup:

I've convinced the missus I need to build my library up before I retire, it's worked so far! :shh:

Just noticed a typo on the ISBN of the first title:

Germany's Tiger Tanks D.W. to Tiger I: Design, Production & Modifications, ISBN 978-007643-1038-6

Should be 978-07643-1038-6
