by Stephen Hart
- Air, Ground, & Naval Warfare, World War II
The Red armored tide
The Red Army's astounding success on the Eastern Front owed a great debt to its armored arsenal. Packed with 120 newly commissioned full-color illustrations, here is a detailed guide to the war's Soviet AFVs-from the T-18 light tank and BT fast tank series to the heavy Joseph Stalin tanks of the conflict's final months.
All of the major and many minor tanks are featured, including variations of the T-26, KV series, and T-34; self-propelled guns; and such Allied Lend-Lease AFVs as the British Churchill and American Sherman and tanks. Each profile includes authentic markings and color schemes, while every separate model is accompanied by exhaustive specifications.
Russian Tanks of World War II is an essential for every military bookshelf.
