Not all units will be represented in these 2 volumes as photographs of some units are not publicly available in the Wiki Commons. Photographs will be organized in this order: Heer s.Pz.Abt., smaller Heer units, SS-s.Pz.Abt. and then smaller SS units. Please refer to the table of contents to quickly see photographs of the unit you are looking for. I would like to thank Grant Hall, Chris Brown, David Byrden and Mario Lippert, members of the Tiger im Focus forum. Without their help this project would not be possible.
