    A good book that touches on the subject of anti-tank warfare is Hubert Meyer's- 12.SS A History of the Hitler Youth Panzerdivision. It is really a well written book about the battles of Normandy and on with plenty of good maps, photos and personal accounts from both sides.

    It talks quite a bit about how the Jagdepanthers and other tank killers would sit quite a ways back from the battles in the brush and basically snipe the allied tanks. By doing that they could hope to stay out of sight of the artillery forward observers and the jabos. The Germans use of the Panzerfaust was fearsome but the allies would counter it by having their infantry advance with the armor making it very difficult to knock out the allied tanks. The battles arouind Caen are god subjects to study tank and anti tank warfare on the westfront.
