Editorial Reviews

Military Trader
This pioneering book, which is based on extensive interviews with tank crews, records their experiences and offers compelling inside view of armoured warfare in the mid twentieth century. It is an engaging book, and you will find yourself feeling the discomfort, anxiety, fear, pride and joy of a Soviet Tanker in WWII as you read the T-34 In Action.

T-34 in Action 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

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.
