A List of the "Panzer Tracts"

A List of the "Panzer Tracts"
http://www.panzertracts.com

The compiler of this list set about searching for specific information on a particular tank amongst the Panzer Tracts, and realized it was difficult to find a single source to listing the many volumes of the Panzer Tracts to search through. Compiling the list below required consulting several online sources, many of which had partial but incomplete lists; including the panzertracts website which does not list out of stock volumes. The self published nature of the tracts and the use of German abbreviations and words in the titles, do little to aid effective internet searching in English.

With the recent passing of Tom Jentz the future of the panzertracts is in doubt and issues planned for 2013 have not yet appeared, and may never. The compiler felt it was worth some time to compile and post this list as a service to the Axis History and armor enthusiast community.

There still could be some omissions, but the list below is believed to be largely complete as of July 2013. Anyone finding an error or omission is invited to post here to help complete the list.


The "Panzer Tracts" are a collection of technical reference works on the design, construction, and development of German World War II era tanks and armored fighting vehicles. The information contained in the Tracts has been meticulously researched over four decades by the authors, their associates, and the authors' mentor Walter J. Spielberger. Much of the material has been sourced from what survives of primary documents. In many cases it was gleaned from the archives of the original designers, manufacturers, and military planners. In others it was taken from evaluation reports made after post-war tests and observations made by the Allies' on captured vehicles.

This original source data has been compiled and studied. Knowledge gaps have been filled-in with painstaking observations and measurements made on surviving vehicles of the era found in museums, private collections, public displays, and scrap heaps. The results of this considerable effort and dedication to purpose are a one-of-a-kind compendium of detail and minutiae describing WWII German armor. The Panzer Tracts represent a treasure trove of hard data for English speaking historians, tank enthusiasts, and model makers seeking accurate historical details.

The creators, authors, and illustrators of the Panzer Tracts are:

• Thomas L. Jentz, 66, of Germantown, Maryland, who passed away on December 29, 2012. He was a widely acclaimed, world leading authority and technical expert on the design, construction, and development of Germany's WWII era armored vehicles, on which he authored 93 books. He self published the Panzer Tracts.

• Hilary L. Doyle was born in 1943 and lives in Dublin. He has written numerous books on armored fighting vehicles. He is perhaps best known for his carefully crafted and detailed illustrations, which are found in his own and other author's books. His scale drawings of panzers and panzer parts are thoroughly researched, exacting in their detail, and a signature feature of the Panzer Tracts.

The Panzer Tracts are published in numbered volumes that correspond with the original numerical series designation of the model of the panzer that the volume describes. Panzer Tracts No.1-1 and No.1-2 are a two volume set dealing with the Panzer-I and its variants. Panzer Tracts No.5-1 through 5-4 are a 4 volume set dealing with the Panzer-V or Panther tank and related models in its development.

Originally appearing in 1997, the Panzer Tracts were published by Darlington Publications of Maryland through 2000. From 2001 onwards the Panzer Tracts were self published by T.L. Jentz from Boyds, Maryland. Only those volumes with copies still in print are listed on and made available for purchase directly through the panzertracts.com website. Darlington Publications appears to have disappeared so none that it published are available there. Out of print copies may now be found only at used-book sellers.

The following 55 volumes, listed in order by volume number as at July 2013, constitute the Panzer Tracts:

I have all the Panzer Tracts volumes published, and it looks like a fairly accurate list. A couple of points, though:
  1. Some of the Panzer Tracts volumes does not have an ISBN. The AISN is Amazon's internal reference, and can't be used as a reference in any meaningful way outside Amazon.
  2. Lukas Friedli has been announced as the person who will take over after Jentz. He's a nice guy, has already authored several books, both independently and through the Panzer Wrecks label.

Am I correct in understanding that only issues #19-1 and #19-2 are not focused on the hardware side of things? They were mentioned as focusing primarily on the units rather than the hardware.

Don't you just hate it when you have spent hours on a topic and when you preview/submit it asks you to log in and the text has disappeared forever?

Due to that, here is short version of the same.

I just finished collecting Panzer Tracts. I started in 2013 and finished now in the 2019.

The list above was missing at least a few publications:
