3.0 out of 5 stars
Good overview, 31 Aug 2006
This book provides a good overview of Soviet tank development and some tabled information on organisation and numbers etc. in the appendix.
It would certainly be of use to a lot of general readers needing such a perspective; There are some errors but not enough to ruin it's value in this respect.
My only real criticism would be that the specifications for the Tanks are very cursory. It would be educational for all readers to see the gradual improvements in armour and so on and this information is not shown. It may be that the inteded broad emphasis dictated these fact were kept to a minimum but if so that decision is IMHO flawed.
There are also some errors which suggest the information is based on out of date data which in armoured circles has been superceeded for some time now.
