The T-34 was the most influential tank design of World War 2. When first introduced into combat in the summer of 1941, it represented a revolutionary leap forward in tank design. Its firepower, armour protection and mobility were superior to that of any other medium tank of the period. This superiority did not last long. While the T-34 underwent a series of incremental improvements during 1943, it was being surpassed by new German tank designs, most notably the Panther. This title traces the life of the original T-34 through all its difficulties to eventual success.

"This book is a must have for all avid modellers of the Tiger tank regardless of the scale. It provides a ‘one stop shop’ resource for anyone wanting to find out the details of the Tiger Heavy tank and the differences between the variations throughout the Second World War." -Jeremy Wee, Armorama (October 2006)"Probably the most famous tank of the World War II, the Tiger I was originally conceived in 1941 in response to the German Army’s experience in fighting British tanks and anti-tank guns in Western Europe and the North African desert. Following the invasion of Russia, the appearance of the Soviet T-34 and KW tanks lent a further impetus to the programme. The Tiger’s power and performance on the battlefield is emphasised by tables of relevant performance throughout the book, which clearly show the battlefield survivability of the Tiger and its superiority to many allied tank designs. This comprehensive and extremely detailed text is accompanied by a fine selection of black and white photographs showing the tank in use."

The highly successful 'stop-gap' M3 medium tank was designed in 1941, and as adequate turret casting facilities were not yet ready, the M3 used an unusual armament configuration patterned after a French tank. British lend-lease demands led to the design of a second turret type with the US version called the Lee and the British version the Grant. It could penetrate Panzer armor, and its explosive firepower was excellent for dealing with German anti-tank guns. This book covers the design, development, service and variants of a vehicle that was the backbone of many World War II forces.

In 1942 the RAF began to form special Strike Wings to attack the heavily defended and seemingly invulnerable convoys that brought Germany's vital supplies of iron ore from Scandinavia down the coast of Europe to feed its war machine. The outcome was a series of air/sea battles at close quarters, fought with increasing ferocity until the last days of the war. The author, himself a survivor of strike aircraft of Coastal Command, has researched these little-known and complex battles from British and German records, assisted by first-hand accounts from some of the brave and distinguished airmen who flew in the attacks. He has also analyzed the effects of the tactics employed on the German war economy, with some startling conclusions. The result is a vivid history of events that were little publicized during the war for reasons of security. There are detailed diagrams of some of the attacks, as well as photographs taken in action.
