Ardenas 1944

El sábado 16 de diciembre de 1944 Hitler inició su “última jugada” en los bosques nevados de las Ardenas. Su intención era realizar un ataque por sorpresa que, avanzando hacia Amberes, dividiese los ejércitos aliados e hiciese posible infligirles una severa derrota: un nuevo Dunquerque que cambiase el curso de una guerra que había llegado a una situación angustiosa, con los ejércitos soviéticos avanzando en suelo alemán. El ataque, en el que intervendrían dos ejércitos blindados, se complementaba con la actuación en la retaguardia de un comando de soldados alemanes, con uniformes y vehículos norteamericanos. Como hiciera en Stalingrado, Beevor consigue aquí combinar una visión épica de la que fue la mayor batalla de la guerra en el frente occidental –una batalla librada en condiciones extremas, que llegó a implicar a un millón de hombres y en la que los dos bandos cometieron crímenes brutales- con una aproximación directa al heroísmo, el miedo y el sufrimiento de los seres humanos.

The allure of the 'Paper Panzer' has long fascinated fans of World War II German armor modeling. The thought that there were literally hundreds of designs that never went beyond the drawing board, let alone the prototype stage, piques the curiosity of modelers and opens up a whole realm of 'what-if' possibilities, filling the void between historical fact and science fiction - and area that is becoming increasingly popular in kit form. The efforts of the German military to create an endless stream of armour concepts dates back to well before the war, before the Nazi party even. In 1933 there existed a very formalized process for the development and adoption of armored vehicles that followed a very rigid set of processes. However, by 1939, as the war began to increase in intensity, the relevant parties within the German armor community veered from both reason and sound tactical doctrines in an effort to incorporate numerous aspects of mechanical and armament technology in a near-obsessive drive to produce ever-superior tank designs. As armour plates grew thicker and thicker, and guns became larger and larger, the powers that be in the myriad of engineering studios, military hierarchy and the technical bureaucrats of the German war machine poured more and more energy into developments that ultimately wasted enormous resources and diverted both men and material away from more realistic endeavours. The aftermath of this internal arms race is what modellers term the "Paper Panzers". These designs, (many only ever being seen in the drawing stage - hence the name), illustrated every class of tank design imaginable - from super lightweight 5-ton recon tanks all the way up to a massive 1,000-ton super-heavy tank designs that utilized the turret of an un-built battleship, with everything in between. Some of these concepts were turned into reality in the form of full working prototype form, and it is this group that is of particular fascination to the modeling community. In recent years, this interest has seen a steady stream of mainstream kit manufacturers providing the market with styrene injected kits (in addition to the ever present resin kit makers releases) of many of the more popular designs, including the infamous E-series of armoured vehicles that was designed to replace the whole range of German armour.

This volume presents a cross-section of the most common transport vehicles produced and used by the German army. Tanks plus auxiliary vehicles such as cars, motorcycles, vans, ambulances, trucks and tractors made it possible for the troops to keep moving. These lightly armored or unarmored vehicles—aka “soft skins”—operated behind the front lines, maintaining supply lines, connecting armies with their home bases, and ultimately determining the outcome of battle. Beginning with the development of military vehicles in the early 1930s, this volume discusses the ways in which this new technology influenced and, to some extent, facilitated Hitler’s program of rearmament. Nomenclature, standard equipment, camouflage and the combat roles of the various vehicles are thoroughly examined. Individual vehicle types are arranged and discussed by the following classifications: cars and motorcycles; trucks and tractors; half-tracks and wheeled combat vehicles. Accompanied by well-researched, detailed line drawings, each section deals with a number of individual vehicles, describing their design, manufacture and specific use.
