This is a limited-edition bundle in partnership with Valor Studios that features a custom minifigure created by Brickmania, as well as a hardcover copy of the book The Panzer Killers with a hand-autographed bookplate featuring the signature of Walter Stitt.

First a Sherman tank driver, then promoted to a gunner, Rev. Walter Stitt served in Easy Company, 33rd Armored Regiment, 3rd Armored Division. He fought from Normandy to Mons to the Bulge where he was wounded by a Panzerfaust, losing his third tank of the war. Evacuated to England, Walter recovered from the injuries sustained in the Bulge and was then assigned to the 8th Air Force's 95th Bomb Group as a bomb loader where he remained for the rest of the war.

In The Panzer Killers, Daniel P. Bolger, a retired lieutenant general and Iraq War veteran, offers up a lively, dramatic tale of Major General Maurice Rose's (the World War II tank commander whose 3rd Armored Division struck fear into the hearts of Hitler's panzer crews) heroism. Along the way, Bolger infuses the narrative with fascinating insights that could only come from an author who has commanded tank forces in combat. The result is a unique and masterful story of battlefield leadership, destined to become a classic.
