Summary

Summary

Russian Tanks is a pictorial record of Soviet armored forces before and during World War II. The dramatic struggle of the tank crews against German advance is told through the photographs in the book, some of which have never been published before. Included are images of tank training in the 1920's and 1930's, photographs taken on active service, and dramatic pictures of the major tank battles of the war. They are complemented by an authoritative history of the Soviet armored forces, from their inception to their triumphant 1945 entry into Berlin.
