From the publisher:
In World War II, Germany’s doctrine of mobile warfare dominated the battlefield. By trial and error, the Germans were the first to effectively combine the strength of tanks, infantry, and artillery. This integration of mobile units, equipment, and tactics underpinned Germany’s successes in the first half of the war. As the war dragged on the Allies sought to copy German tactics, but German armies remained supreme in this style of warfare until their losses had seriously degraded their capabilities.

This study traces the development of the different types of unit that came together in the Panzergrenadier branch, from between the wars through World War II. Eight color plates display uniforms, equipment, and insignia in all theaters of operation throughout the war.

FSM says:

Color plates provide valuable information on uniform colors and insignia; great for painting and decorating German scale figures.
