Shown throughout the book is a variety of photographs of the Kьbelwagen 82. The photographs range from scenes to casual scenes to that were staged for the The photographs are in a correct chronological from the Kьbelwagen’s predecessors, to the and deployment of the Kьbelwagen Type 82, on the war on all of Germany’s fronts, to the end of hostilities in Many of the photographs will be a to the diorama-oriented military modeler as of them show the Type 82 various times of the year as summer and winter and in different of terrain such as Russian and mud, North African rock-strewn Italy and Western debris-filled streets. Another that is covered is captured/commandeered Captured/commandeered subjects have a longtime favorite subject of so I was very pleased to see that is was in this book. The book photographs of the Kьbelwagen in the hands of the as well as the American Jeep in the of the Axis. Due to the fact that of the photographs are of the walk-around type will prove to be a valuable for the detail-oriented modeler due to the large of information they provide. As as the military modeler, the military enthusiasts and the Volkswagen and Kьbelwagen will appreciate the photographic found within the pages of fine volume. Most of the are nice and clear, however are some that have

an out of focus look to them and appear too dark whereas appear too light. I have several military photographs have this look to so that is just typical. I do that several military are actually stills taken video so that could be one With that said the of the photographs is of no fault of the author and it to be taken into consideration some of the photographs are over 70 old. I haven’t seen a of the featured photographs before, and I was with this. I definitely that a bonus as it is nice to a reference book that several lesser known as opposed to the same old overused that many books to contain. Please refer to the that I have provided so you can judge photographs for yourself.


All of the photographs are accompanied by that are in English text. The that accompany the photographs are written and go into great in regards to the vehicle, such as and unit numbers and markings, and other such points of as well as the location of the scene is shown. It is obvious that Vollert has taken the time to the photographs and research them so they are well detailed and out several items of interest. As I through the captions as well as the pages of text I didn’t any spelling or grammatical errors. and spelling might not be important to everyone; however I take of them and pass on my findings. I that if the text is well it shows that the author has the time to be a professional with writing.


I am very impressed this book. The Kьbelwagen 82 is very well covered. its wealth of detailed photographs and this book will to the military vehicle modeler, modeler, scratch-builder, military enthusiast, and the Volkswagen and Kьbelwagen and will be a welcome addition to personal reference library. I have no hesitation to recommend book to others nor would I to add other Tankograd Publishing to my personal library.
