German Halftracks in Action - Armor No. 3, Feist, Uwe & Kurt Rieger
1 Feist, Uwe & Kurt Rieger German Halftracks in Action - Armor No. 3
Squadron/Signal Publications 1972 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
A half-track is a civilian or military vehicle with regular wheels at the front for steering and continuous tracks at the back to propel the vehicle and carry most of the load. The purpose of this combination is to produce a vehicle with the cross-country capabilities of a tank and the handling of a wheeled vehicle. A common feature of virtually all German World War II half-tracks was the so-called Schachtellaufwerk overlapped/interleaved roadwheel arrangement with a "slack track" system possessing no return rollers under the return run of track, used from the small Kettenkrad to the nine-tonne capacity Sd.Kfz. 9 vehicle, and most famously used on Henschel's Tiger I and MAN's Panther main battle tanks.

1951 printing. Grey cloth cover in very good condition, clean contents. Dust has several tears but now in mylar cover. Humorous stories of a merchant seaman. "Long before Lt Montgomery Scott took over the engines of the USS Enterprise, Colin Glencannon was in charge of the engines of the SS Inchecliffe Castle, a tramp steamer on an ongoing mission to carry cargoes from one end of the earth to the other, make a slim profit for her owners (Clifford & Castle Steamship, Ltd.), and keep Chief Engineer Glencannon, Captain John Ball, and First Officer Chauncey Montgomery in perpetual mischief. Glencannon has been called the first literary hero with absolutely NO redeeming qualities. He is a sneak, a crook, a liar, a smuggler, a lush, a cheat, a common barroom brawler, a miser ... well, the list is endless." Reviewer. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 437 pages
