The Red Army on Parade 1917-1945.
The Red Army on Parade 1917-1945 is, without doubt, the publisher’s most ambitious project to date. This first volume describes the tanks and armoured vehicles paraded by the Red Army on Red Square from the first anniversary of the Russian Revolution in November 1918 until the end of the war in 1945. From the first captured French and British tanks displayed on Red Square, via the first Soviet KS tank to the T-34, KV and IS tanks, the book describes the first public appearance of all Red Army tanks and military vehicles displayed on Red Square and the background philosophy involved in their development.
This is a high-quality book with excellent image reproduction and useful information.
