This publication's aim is to bring together current knowledge on Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H and Ausf. J tanks. During his research, the author has used literature in Polish, German and English. In order to provide the reader with selected episodes from the frontline service of these vehicles, the author also referred to memoirs and other archive sources. Dozens of photographs complete the book, including many taken during active service of both variants of the tank or shortly after its completion.
There are also many unpublished photographs of Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. J tanks used by troops of the 10th SS Panzer Division Frundsberg, found in April 2011 in Kluczewo near Stargard, currently undergoing a major renovation under the supervision of specialists from the Museum of Polish Arms (Muzeum Oręża Polskiego) in Kołobrzeg. These are supplemented by three-dimensional digital illustrations of complete vehicles and their details.
