Interessting is to read how the Russian tank men used their T34 in action and compared it to lend & lease tanks from their western allies. A little disapointing for me was that the general statements in the first part of the book are directly repeated in the in action reports, so I had the impression that stories are told twice to fill the book. More historical fotos would add value to this book. Nevertheless it is important to read about the T34 and how their crews fought with it for all who are interrested in this tank or the Russian part of WW2.
