The author of this message has not seen this before, from Bundesarchiv. Might give someone an idea to do one in German hands, Arnheim, 1944.

Yes an excellent book, the first to tell it from the 'other side' - I got it when i first came out in 1990.

Kershaw's War Without Garlands about the eastern front is also a good read

Flammpanzer B2 indeed

April 6 2012, 3:10 AM 

That's not a regular Pzkpfw B2 740(f) but actually a converted Pzkpfw B2 (Fl)ammenwerfer as confirmed by the 75mm hull gun replaced with the flamethrower

At Arnhem, these Pz B2 (Fl) belonged to Pz.abt.224 engaged mostly in Oosterbeek sector

Panzer-Kompanie 224

April 6 2012, 7:51 AM 

There's lots of pictures of the Char B flamms of Panzer-Kompanie 224 in both After-the-Battle's Arnhem TAN and Concord's 7039 German Armored Units at Arnhem (14, and an organisational chart in the latter).
