    “On 6 June 1982, Israel launched operation “Peace for Galilee”, a large-scale invasion of Lebanon aiming at protecting northern Israel from PLO missiles, artillery and infiltration. Called “al-Ijtiyah, The Invasion” in Lebanon, the operation destroyed PLO infrastructure and altered the conflict map by removing “players” and adding others, complicating the Lebanese Civil War scene.”
    This book beautifully narrates the use of tanks and armoured vehicles in some of the most critical chapters of the conflict in Lebanon. Dedicated primarily to modellers and lovers of military history, this book documents the use of various tanks in combat, ranging from the IDF armoured forces to the T-54/55 and some rare versions of the T-34.
    The author, Samer Kassis, a seasoned military historian of the Middle East, invites us on a fascinating journey into the recent history of Lebanon, publishing never-seen-before photographs of that moment in time.

    During the Great War, the assault tanks in the German Army merely played an anecdotal role. Due to the restrictions enforced by the Treaty of Versailles, the first training unit for armoured forces wasn’t organised (secretly) until 1933. The existence of the first three Panzerdivisionen of that new German Army was officially revealed in 1935.

    The armoured troops or Panzertruppen were an independent branch of the Army, with their own command. This allowed concentrating the tanks in divisions so units were capable of significantly strategic deployments. General Heinz Guderian forged both words: Panzerwaffe to refer to the armoured force and Panzertruppen to identify the elitist armoured troops which would conquer half of Europe in the following years.
    The evolution of the camouflage schemes painted in tanks and vehicles of German armoured units is analysed in the book along with the organisation of these German units during WWI and WWII and the whole interwar period.

  • Arrived in the Middle East in 1955. The tank was known as a reliable war machine from the battlefields of World War II, and quickly became a main battle tank in the Egyptian army. In the Sinai Campaign (1956), the Israeli Sherman and AMX-13 tanks met it in battle for the first time, and by the end of the operation, the IDF had managed to capture several of them. These tanks were driven through the streets of Tel Aviv as a symbol of the great victory that had protected the young, small state. Afterward, the IDF tested and studied the tanks it had captured, made sure that its soldiers learned them well, and integrated them into its Armored Corps’ training course. By 1967, Syria and Egypt had bought hundreds of T-34s, and it was considered a threat that the Israeli army would definitely meet in their next war.

    In the Six Day War, some 860 enemy tanks were captured by the IDF, including some 280 T-54/5 tanks. Within a few years, 146 of them were introduced into service as Tiran 4/5. This book tells their story, a story of the only army that introduced a great number of enemy tanks into prolonged service. The Tiran tank did not really suit the IDF’s needs. It was in many ways a bastard tank. However, the IDF creatively tried to take advantage of all that it had to offer. It was used like no other tank—as a low-grade “bonus” reserve tank unit for wartime, as a mine-clearing tank, as a unique tool for special operations, and as an artillery cannon designated for destroying SA-3 anti-air missile batteries. After many alterations, the tanks were eventually incorporated in a Tiran 4/5 brigade, as part of a special tactical task force designed to conduct an armored maneuver in the Egyptian flank.

    Abteilung 502 and Desert Eagle Publishing bring us the second volume of the Captured Vehicles in IDF Service Series. A new series for those who build models, love tanks and like history. The series focuses on the widespread and unique use the IDF made of tanks and armored vehicles captured in Israel’s wars with its Arab neighbors. The series is based on academic research, official IDF documentation, and interviews conducted with soldiers and officers who used these vehicles in real time. An amazing book that will surprise you.
