Panzerkampfwagen (Somua) 35 S - 739 (f)
The French Somua S35 Tank in German Service 1940-45

When the most modern German Panzer types were needed on the frontlines, it became the task of captured tanks, the Beutepanzers, to control the German-occupied territories and to supplement German armoured formations. Among the many types used in the war, Beutepanzers of French origin stand out for the reason that they were the only ones used in larger numbers and major formations on all frontlines.
The Somua S35 tank, by many considered the best French tank of the war, would be one of the captured types to gain fame in German service as well. Deployed to occupied France, Norway, Finland, Yugoslavia and other fronts it would become a vital asset for the Wehrmacht in fighting partisans and to carry out policing duties. This is the first monograph on the Panzerkampfwagen 35 S - 739 (f), as the S35 was designated by the German officials and shows the tank’s technology, variants and service in unprecedented detail.
