Horst Kronke served in German armor units, eventually transferring into schwere Panzer Abteilung 503 as the commander of a Tiger tank. Ultimately he transferred into s.Pz.Abt. 505 - another Tiger unit, where he served with his brother on the Eastern Front until the end of the war.

Book Description
As with the first book in this series covering the experiences of Alfred Rubbel (see page 55), this second book is strictly the story of one man: Horst Kronke. The story combines the experiences of Kronke with approximately 400 photographs (most which are unpublished), hand-drawn maps, and original documents, to tell the story of a veteran of Germany's elite panzerwaffe and feared Tiger tanks. His initial experience was in training with Panzer Ersatz Abteilung 5. From there he was assigned to Panzer Regiment 6, of the 3rd Panzer Division and experienced the opening of the war in Russia. Kronke was in action on the Eastern Front through the end of 1942 at which time he was sent back to Germany to attend officer cadet and then officer's schools. Upon his return to the front and Panzer Regiment 6 he was sidetracked by an old comrade and was incorporated into schwere Panzer Abteilung 503. At that point Horst was introduced to the new Tiger tank and served with a Tiger unit, transferring to schwere Panzer Abteilung 505 to serve with his brother, until the end of the war.
