Default The Other Panzer Heroes

One thing that is rarely heard about was the maintenance shop. It repaired armored vehicles as late as April 1945. No Ritterkreuz for these men but without these repairmen the armored units would not reach their destination. To illustrate their work I selected a handfull of pictures.

If you're interested in that sort of thing, allow me to recommend two excellent books published by Panzerwrecks:

http://www.panzerwrecks.com/product/...panzers-vol-2/

And also the surprisingly interesting book about the Strabokran gantry crane:
