Thanks for the review Mathew. I have a few of these books (KV1, KV2, Pzr III & IV) and can agree with your general impressions. They have a pretty standard format regardless what the subject is, and they are quite useful for their series of sharp images included.
I´d still prefer the Achtung Panzer type series of books for the break down of different details, but this would be an excellent compliment.

What's that thing in the lower right corner? An early Bison? It's wonderfully ugly!

One thing the book does have, is (unless i'm mistaken) a TOTALLY new photo of the Pz1 'Breda' - as these images are as rare as teeth on a hen...

As I'm the contact for Tankograd, I must admit to letting it out of my clutches with great reluctance It really is an extraordinarily good book...

As Jim mentioned there is a picture of the Breda shown, albeit just one, it makes the otherwise tiny vehicle take on a more menacing look. I'm not well versed on the Pz1, but this book is helping me get there. Thanks, "Q"

Thanks for the review Matthew.
This is definitely my favorite series of tanks and it good to get more information on an often overlooked vehicle
