Germany’s Panzer IV was designed as an infantry support tank, but it soon proved to be so diverse and effective that it earned a unique tactical role on the battlefield. In Panzer IV at War, Paul Thomas chronicles in photographs and text the production of the Panzer IV and its performance in key battles on the Eastern and Western fronts.
The Panzer IV was the only German tank to remain in production throughout the war—and its chassis was converted into myriad models. These images depict prototype projects, command tanks, observation vehicles, ammunition carriers, recovery vehicles, and amphibious armored ferry vehicles, showing how the Panzer IV evolved—and how it was adapted and up-gunned to face the ever-increasing enemy threat.
