Tiger Tank Manual Bestseller
Posted 08 January 2012 - 01:45 PM
The fully-illustrated Haynes Manual, compiled by historian David Fletcher, Bovington Tank Museum curator David Willey and museum workshop manager Mike Hayton, details the workings of the Tiger 131 tank.
It is one of Bovington Tank Museum’s prized exhibits, as it is the last example of a working Tiger in the world.
Haynes’ editorial director Mark Hughes confirmed: “Our Tiger Tank manual has been a fantastic seller both here and in North America, and now there are several foreign language editions too – including German.”"

uncommonly balanced appraisal of Tigger as a machine, rather than some kind of uberwaffen.
I'd recommend, both to the dilletante, & more serious panzer-nerds.

Surprisingly cheap, for what I think is a more than worthwhile book, and hopefully the first in a long series.
Sqwee! Haynes. Tiger Tank. It prolly costs an arm and leg...
Particularly if you get sent a copy from a friend, and then another for a present .
Sherman one released recently too:
Sherman Tank Manual: An Insight into the History, Development, Production and Role of the Allied Second World War Battle Tank (Owners' Workshop Manual): Amazon.co.uk: Pat Ware: 9780857331014: Books
Though I'm a little wary of that one, as the author can be somewhat dry - I'll have to have a shufti before getting it.
Here's hoping they're the first steps in a much wider series. There's a large gap in the market for this kind of book regarding many Allied vehicles.
