The third book in the series covers the story of a panzer soldat
from Germany's Wehrmacht of the Second World War. GA"nter Polzin
served his brief military career with Schwere Panzer Abteilung 503,
an outfit that was equipped throughout the war with Germany's
vaunted Tiger tank. With a significant contribution from Martin
Burmester, his story with Tiger-abteilung 503 is unusual, in that
there has been little told from the perspective of a former member
of the 2nd Company of 503. While there are several books available
that cover 503, there has been limited coverage of the 2nd Company.
From training to the harsh battles on the Eastern Front, on the
invasion front in the West to the final battles in Hungary, and
finally ending the war in captivity, both Polzin and Burmester were
with 503 throughout the entire combat deployment of that unit.
Combining their experiences with photographs, many previously
unseen, and other, better-known photographs, a more complete
picture of 503 is presented within the context of a Tiger tank
