Tanks, again

Post by MrFurious » 26 Mar 2002 04:59

Hi! Could someone please post a link or more to good German and Soviet WW2 Tank sites with pictures and info?

Also, how come no movie ever gets the tanks right? Were they all destroyed?


Tank...I mean, Thank you.

Encyclopedia of German Tanks of World war two


I have this book and it is really good. I got it for 1 cent from the military book club :). It is only about 14 dollars though, and well worth it.

I also have the one from the same writer on the UK-American tanks and armor.

Is the one about allied tanks as good as the one about axis vehicles?

Yes it is, I think he does a little more detail in the German one though, mainly how he gives the little excerpt about combat. He does not always do that in the American version, for whatever reason, although all the information about development history and such is all there. And some really good appendix sections with gun specs etc.

When talking books, the Panzer Tracts series is good as well - mainly factual, though. For more combat history, go with Osprey New Vanguard, and try to get the books written byt Thomas Jentz.
