Overview

The great armor battles of the Eastern Front are widely known, but the role of Germany's eastern allies is not as famous. Two countries, Romania and Hungary, manufactured their own tanks, while others acquired their armor from Germany. These imported vehicles ranged from older, obsolete types such as the PzKpfw 35(t) through to the brand new Tiger I and Hetzer.

Overview

The great armor battles of the Eastern Front are widely known, but the role of Germany's eastern allies is not as famous. Two countries, Romania and Hungary, manufactured their own tanks, while others acquired their armor from Germany. These imported vehicles ranged from older, obsolete types such as the PzKpfw 35(t) through to the brand new Tiger I and Hetzer. These tanks played a frequent role in the battles in southern Russia and Ukraine and were especially prominent at Stalingrad, where the Red Army identified the weaker Romanian and Hungarian salients as the target of their critical envelopment operation.

In addition to these larger Axis tank forces, this book also looks at the many smaller and lesser-known forces that saw action, including the Italian contingent in Russia, the Finns, and the small but diverse armored forces of the Croatian, Bulgarian and Slovakian armies, and the various anti-Soviet Russian formations such as the ROA.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The matchless Steven J. Zaloga returns with a superb study of WWII Eastern Front Axis armor ... Tanks of Hitler's Eastern Allies 1941–45 ... tells the titanic tale from the perspective of Nazi Germany's co-belligerents. And what a superb story it is."
- David L. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com (June 2013)

"...an excellent book and one that any armor fan will thoroughly enjoy. It is chock full of great photos and some equally superb artwork. It is divided by telling the story of each nation's armor and how it was used during the war. It is a book that modelers will find of much interest as it offers something a bit different from the norm. A book that I can easily recommend to you."
- Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (May 2013)
