Maybe OF, but a friend of mine spotted a web page with excerpts from Tiger and Panther tank manuals, humorously written to increase the likelihood the aspiring tanker would actually read them.

"War is supposed to be a serious business, right? Not according to German WWII technical writers who turned the thick, boring tank manuals for "Tiger" & "Panther" tanks into a "Popular Science"/"Playboy"/comic book combination. These juicy manuals proved to be so popular, that they were even translated into Russian and read throughout the Soviet Army tank corps."

He said they were translated into Russian, did you translate them into Dutch?

Correct, I have read the German version.

I also happen to own a copy (reprint ofcourse) of the Tiger fibel myself.
