Darren Baker takes a look at the new book from Haynes Manuals on the Tiger Tank. The manual primarily covers Tiger 131 housed at Bovington Tank Museum.

Thanks for the review . As you say , the book can't be everything to everyone , but it should give us another side of the Tiger story . Hopefully mine should arrive by mail soon as I preordered on Amazon when this book was 1st announced . Hopefully this publication sells a bunch and the Haynes / Bovington crew can do more on WW2 Armoured subjects ....pls

Being once a Certified Automotive Technician I know I'll never work on a Tiger I tank, but this manual would sure look good among the other "car & truck" manuals.

Best of all, they can't cop out of each section by stating "too complicated for home repair - take it to the main dealer" like they do in my Mondeo manual...

Looks like another book to add to my shopping list.

Thanks Darren!
