Reference source on Soviet Army?

Post by stumo » 19 Apr 2002 07:23

I'm looking for a good book with TO&E's, order of battle info, and maybe brief divisional service records for the Red Army during WWII. Does anybody have any recommendations?

Thanks,

Stewart King

I don't have my copy availalbe at the moment, but I believe "Red Army Handbook: 1939-45" by Steven J. Zaloga & Leland Ness has some TO&E info.

Hhi Stumo

Finally made it home through the traffic and the name I thought of at work was totally wrong.

The book you require is "The Red Army Order of Battle" by Robert Poirier & Albert Conner. Published by Presido. ISBN0-89141-237-9.

Gives details on Armies, Corps and Divisions.

Well worth some pennies

Ps He also has the Photographic History of the Great Patriotic War vol 1-5(In Russian) at times, it is well worth having in a libery on the Soviet Army.
