From the Publisher"In this latest edition of the Duel series, author Robert Forczyk takes a close look at the usual machinations of the Soviet military-industrial complex and what it took to get the KV tanks into production. He then goes through the development of the KV tank on the Soviet side and anti-tank units on the German side. We then look at the political situation on both sides as well as the technical specs on the two weapon types. This is followed by the organization and training of the combatants before many pages of combat tales and information. This ends with an analysis of what was learned and how this affected future events. This is accompanied by some excellent period photos and modern illustrations and maps to let the reader get an idea of how the situation changed with time. It makes for a superb read and one I can most highly recommend."
