Sd.Kfz.6 Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 5t Paperback
by Alan Ranger
Part of the Camera on series
During WW2, the German armed forces were the greatest user of half-track vehicles.
Such vehicles were used in the Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS, where they served as personnel carriers, tractors, combat engineering vehicles, as well as self-propelled carriages for anti-aircraft and anti-tank guns.
One of them was the Sd.Kfz. 6 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 6) Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 5 t (middle half-track vehicle 5 tons).
It was designed to be used as the main towing vehicle for the 10.5 cm le.FH 18 howitzer.
This book presents a collection of photographs of different versions from the private archives of German soldiers.
The photographs depict vehicles serving on all fronts in a variety of roles.
Camera On: a new series of books on the equipment and operations of the German Wehrmacht in WW2.
The focus is on the often ignored or overlooked soft-skinned, non-armoured, vehicles used by the German army.
This profusely illustrated photo-album includes a large number of previously unseen pictures, many from private sources in Germany.
Whatever the rules might have said, German soldiers took many photographs, and these are the basis for this new series!
