Publisher's Summary

World War II began with a metallic roar as the German Blitzkrieg raced across Europe, spearheaded by the most dreaded weapon of the 20th century: the Panzer. No German tank better represents that thundering power than the infamous Tiger, and Otto Carius was one of the most successful commanders to ever take a Tiger into battle, destroying well over 150 enemy tanks during his incredible career.

Astounding work

This book represents the war from the side of an army that was overwhelmingly outgunned and fought in some of the fiercest conditions imaginable. A truly illuminating book for anyone passionate about soldier war stories.

Arrogance.

If you could sum up Tigers in the Mud in three words, what would they be?

Hubris. Arrogance. Resentment.

Has Tigers in the Mud turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all. Want to hear from all sides of a conflict.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wouldn't make a film of this book.

Any additional comments?

Glad I listened to it to hear a different viewpoint. However, based on the authors opinion, the Nazi's won the war and the American forces provided no challenge.

Sore loser

I’m not sorry I read it but he is an reconstructed Nazi.
I learned much more about the inner workings of a Tiger tank than I ever wanted to know..but, interesting in bits and pieces.

Another view of the german soldier

Good text well written, good narration and very instructive. The story is pretty long. Ideal for listening while driving.

love this book, well written.

this book gives you an insight of what it was like for German Soldier in the Eastern Front. I was surprised too here the author say how he is fighting for his country and not for Hitler. not every German was a Nazi.

Good book

Very good book but found Carius to be a Nazi sympathizer and kept telling the reader the Germans were in Russia for the sake of the West. with a handful of Tigers he was able to stop Russian advances and destroyed T34s at will. The Tiger was a great tank but not invincible. Tiger Tracks makes the Tiger more "human" so to speak.
I enjoyed the book overall.
