Allied Tanks of World War II 1939–1945: The World's Great Weapons

Allied Tanks of World War II offers a highly illustrated guide to the main armoured fighting vehicles used by the Western Allies and the Red Army from 1939–1945. This volume includes sample unit structures and orders of battle from company up to corps level, providing an organizational context for key campaigns throughout the war.

Divided into two parts – the Western and the Soviet spheres – the book is then organised chronologically, offering a comprehensive survey of armoured fighting vehicles by campaign, including the fall of Poland, the defence of the Low Countries and France, desert warfare in North Africa, German invasion of the Soviet Union, the Stalingrad counter-offensive, the push through Italy, the Normandy landings, the battle of the Bulge, and the final defeat of Axis forces in Berlin, Vienna and Budapest in May 1945.

All the major and many minor tanks are featured, including every variation of the BT fast tank, as well as the T-26 light tank and T-34, the M4 Sherman, Churchill and Matilda. The guide also includes numerous halftracks, mine-clearing versions, armoured cars and amphibious vehicles, Lend-Lease AFVs, self-propelled guns, tractors and trucks. Packed with 400 full-colour artworks and photographs with exhaustive specifications, Allied Tanks of World War II is a key reference guide for military modellers and World War II enthusiasts.
