This thread is to for readers exchanging opinions on existing book on the subject, not for authors advertising their books which were just published, especially when these books are of autobiographical character. So I recommend to place an announcement in the Reference Material section of the forum.

A long time ago some someone recommended this book, "Eugene Drig's 'Mechanized corps Red Army in Action'. 830 pages of statistics and descriptions of fights."

It is a fantastic book, still available by the way, but it lacks an index making it very hard to use :(

After purchasing a number of Russian books, I enjoyed this series of books by Ilya Moschansky, http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/4881982/. Another really nice book, is this one on Armored Trains http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/5086184/ the second part has just come out http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/5430549/.

Wonder if someone can tell men something about,

Великая Отечественная Война. 1941-1945. Словарь-справочник

do know what I should make of it.

Rostislav Aliev book. Storm Brest (Brest-Litowsk) Zittadel (june 1941). Probably best published on this theme in Russia and in the West. Author used thousand documents from NARA and BA-MA. The book reflects a sight of German commanders at a course of storm of a fortress.

Can anyone recommend books that deal with Soviet self-propelled (SU) units?
