This very affordable book provide a wealth of information on full period from the October Revolution to the end of World War II for the Red Army armoured capability.

The publisher is achieving great success with this fascinating Cold War series and this volume covers the critical period of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Yet another excellent addition to a very popular series that presents outstanding images of war.

This Australian perspective has been well-researched and provides a view of highly successful desert campaigns during WWI. Descriptive text is supported by interesting and rare images through the body of the book – Most Highly Recommended.
