Schwere Panzerjager-Abteilung 654 was one of the two heavy tank-destroyer formations of the German armed forces to be equipped with the heavy Ferdinand tank destroyer.It earned a further distinction as one of the few formations to have also fielded the Jagdpanther, one of the most famous tank destroyers of World War II. Karlheinz Munch, using primary sources and largely unpublished photographs from and about this battalion, has written what must be considered the definitive history of this little known aspect of World War II. Munch is assisted in his yeoman efforts by the superb colour illustrations, masterful unit organizational charts and highly accurate scale drawings.In addition to hundreds of previously unpublished period photoraphs – including what must be every picture ever taken of the Jagdpanther with this battalion – is a text that combines original history, first-hand accounts and the complete war diaries of the battalion from late 1943 onward.
Published by J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing, the Canadian publishing house that specialises in literature on the German armed forces of the World War II era. The press has received praise from North American and German writers for professionally produced text and illustrated books, also for providing a platform for authors who present an uncritical and historical portrayal of the German war effort during WW2.
