News from Dale Ritter
8 October 2004

Dale Ritter, editor of The Tiger Project series from Schiffer, dispatched a few words about what's next after the second book is released later this month: "Currently the third title in the series is projected to be the personal memoirs of Dr. Guenter Polzin who served in the 2nd Company of schwere Panzer Abteilung 503 as a Tiger tank loader. The 2nd Company is largely neglected in the previously written accounts of s.Pz.Abt. 503 and this book will fill in the gaps left in the unit history."
