The Sturmgeschatz III proved to be one of the more significant German AFVs of World War II. Originally designed in the late 1930s as self-propelled infantry support gun, its role became more diverse throughout the war, and it served as a tank hunter and in front-line Panzer companies. The book details the construction of four models in 1/35 scale and includes a gallery feature covering all variants of the StuG III. Aftermarket products are added to the basic kits to produce accurate replicas. Reference is fairly extensive on this particular vehicle and is clearly presented as each correction to the kits is explained. Kits of all scales are included in the 'Kits available' listing in the book.
