Spielberger query
Posted by Bish on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 1:16 PM

I know of the Spielberger German armour and military vehicles series, I bought the Panther vol a couple of years back and planned on buy the rest. But then while looking on Amazon I can across another set by Spielberger, along with Doyle and Jentz. They have different covers and there are some in the second series that I haven't seen in the first.

This is the Pz IV book from the original series I have been collecting, which as you can se if Vol IV in this series.

And this is the Pz IV from the other series I found, Vol 2 in this collection.

Does anyone know if there is any major difference between the 2. Is one more recommended than the other. 


I am a Norfolk man and i glory in being so

I have the German version of the Spielberger books. They have a completely different cover than the ones you posted. I saw the first one at my LHS a few days ago though and it looks like the new German books are the second edition with a lot more info. The 2nd book in your post might be the English version of the new series though.

They are the same books just different editions.  There is some slightly different info in the newer (white) printings, but most of the book is the same.
