From the publisher:
First produced in 1940, Sturmgeschütz (self-propelled assault guns) were purpose-built vehicles intended to support the infantry in the attack and breakthrough of enemy positions.

On the Eastern Front, the StuGs proved to be potent tank destroyers able to defeat even the Soviet T-34 medium and KV heavy tanks. Cheaper and quicker to produce than tanks, they were deployed widely with great success, forming an integral part of armored units, particularly in the final, desperate days of the war when tank production could not keep up with the needs of the war effort.

Drawing on original material from German archives and private collections, this book tells the thrilling story of the Wehrmacht’s workhorse in the final years of World War II.


FSM says:
All things Sturmgeschütz, from Ausf A through G, from the establishment of the Sturmartillerie to the last-ditch defenses of a losing cause. If you are modeling a StuG, there will be valuable detail information for you in scores of photos.
