Anthony Tucker-Jones s photographic history is a fascinating visual introduction to the armored battles of the Second World War in the Far East and Asia-Pacific regions, from 1937 to 1945. In contrast to the experience of the armies that fought in Europe and North Africa, in the Far East tanks remained an infantry support weapon, and their role is often neglected in histories of the conflict. The role of armored vehicles in each theater of the war in the Far East is shown in a selection of over 150 rare wartime photographs that record armor in action in China, Manchuria, Mongolia, Malaya, Burma and during the battles fought for the Pacific islands.

This entry in the Images of War series looks at the armoured vehicles that fought on the Eastern Front during the Second World War. We start with two chapters looking the German and Soviet armoured forces of 1941, just before Operation Barbarossa. This gives an interesting view of the variety of armoured vehicles in Soviet service, from tiny amphibious tanks to the massive T-35 multi-turreted heavy tank and the first few T-34s. There is also a wider variety on the German side than one might expect

On the Eastern Front during the Second World War massive Soviet and German tank armies clashed in a series of battles that were unmatched in their scale and ferocity. Several of them have attained almost legendary status. But epic encounters such as these were only part of a broader story, as Anthony Tucker-Jones demonstrates in this selection of graphic photographs. While the images give a fascinating inside view of combat, they also reveal the daily routines of tank warfare 65 years ago. Training, maintenance, transportation and supply are shown, as are the daily lives of the tank crews and the often appalling conditions in which they worked and fought. The photographs also record in vivid detail the destructive reality of armored warfare, from the initial triumphant advance of the German panzers deep into the Soviet Union to the massive Red Army counter-offensives which drove the German armies back to Berlin.

The book is mainly a brief description about the Soviet armour. Shows some interesting pictures about the red army tanks and try to cover the german tanks also, but from my point of view it fails completely since it is a poor description of the garman armoured warfare. On the other hand if the interest was on the soviets it does not cover them completely..

There are alot of pictures in this small book. Near half taken by the winning Germans during the early beginning and then slowly transitioning to the Soviet take on things as they pushed on to Berlin.

Most pictures (if not all) are of fine quality and cover a large field of what's happening across the front.

In between your postcard look of military might and the wages of war the author has written many a fine chapter on the Eastern Front. How Stalin remand blissfully ignorant for as long as he could of the evil intention of Hitler. Then how the Soviet ability to turn a total landslide defeat into denial. Then using that denial to rebuild and reforge a impoverished nation into a military bulldozer. Information and subtitles are included for every picture and there are a good many maps as well.

This book is really a good buy for just the images alone. Then they throw in the historical war data and descriptions of the actual forces involved with dates. Worth the money. I hope you enjoy.

Anthony Tucker-Jones' ARMORED WARFARE ON THE EASTERN FRONT is a photo-history of tank combat on the Eastern Front from 1941 to 1945. Part of the IMAGES OF WAR series, it offers up 134 pages of rare b&w photographs with bare-bones accompanying text.

After two preparatory chapters detailing and comparing Russian and Axis armored forces pre-June 1941, Tucker-Jones takes the reader through Eastern Front combat chronologically with chapters on 'Barbarossa - The Red Army Smashed,' 'Zhukov's Moscow Miracle,' 'Timoshenko's Kharkov Riposte' and so on. Each chapter has a short, two-three historical summary followed by pages of photographs, many of them from the Stavka Photo Library and the Scott Pick Collection.

Given past IMAGES OF WAR volumes,I was pleasantly surprised by the pix in this 2011 Pen & Sword volume. Photo quality was much better than other IOW books I've seen and captioning seems a bit more detailed. The images themselves are a treat for 'heavy metal' buffs - T-26s, T-34s, T-35s, BA-10s, Panzer II/II/IVs, Hungarian Toldis and Turans, StuG IIIs, KV-2s, SU-76s, IS-1/2/3s, various artillery pieces, etc. A real smorgasbord!

If the Russian Front is an interest or if you're into tanks and AFVs, ARMORED WARFARE ON THE EASTERN FRONT will be of interest. It's one of the better IMAGES OF WAR volumes to come along. Recommended.
