This is the first book in a new series of ten titles from the editorial team at Chevron Publications. The successful and visually appealing format of the 'Classic Colours' aviation series, will be applied to this highly detailed examination of the German Panzer force from its origins in the immediate post-First World War years through to the end of the Second World War. With a clean and striking design, the series will focus on the campaigns of the German Panzerwaffe in the Second World War and the strengths and weaknesses of its commanders and operational methods. Each book will feature a detailed narrative text, describing the planning of each campaign, command and leadership within the Panzerwaffe, strategy and tactics, analysis of successes and failures, orders of battle and technical overview of armoured vehicle types and their variants, In addition, there will be a focus on key commanders, individual units and tank aces in the theatres being discussed. This first volume will begin with an examination of the role of German armour in the First World War and then explore how the Panzerwaffe evolved in the period from 1918 to 1936. It then recounts the part Panzer components played with the German Condor Legion in the Spanish Civil War and how this impacted on strategy and hardware in the years leading up to the outbreak of war and the crises which lead to the Nazi absorption of Austria and Czechoslovakia.This volume concludes with analysis of the crucial role of the Panzerwaffe in the concept of the Blitzkrieg and how they performed in the stunning German victories in the early part of the war during the campaigns which lead to the conquest of Poland and Scandinavia and how they swept all before them when war was unleashed in the west against the Low Countries and France in 1940. The narrative text of each book will be written by one or more acknowledged specialists in their field under the co-ordination of the Series Editor, John Prigent, himself a renowned expert on the German Panzerwaffe. All the books in the series will be authorative and visually exciting. The text will be supported by around 150 rare and fascinating photographs, there will be specially commissioned colour artworks of the tanks described and pictured, 'relief'-style terrain maps, graphics illustrating tactics and battles, side-bars and text boxes. This is an exciting new series which will apply a fresh and highly illustrated treatment to this subject matter, and provide much of interest for those absorbed in the history of mechanised warfare in the last century and offer much practical help for the military modellers.
