KV-1 Model 1941 Heavy Tank in Moscow
This KV-1 Model 1941 Heavy Tank, armed with the ZiS-5 7.62cm gun, similar to the gun used in the T-34, is seen passing through the streets of Moscow during the winter of 1941-42.
Russian Tanks of World War II, Stalin's Armoured Might, Tim Bean and Will Fowler. A good overview of the development of Soviet Tanks from the early models based on British and American originals to the excellent Russian designed T-34 and the heavy IS tanks. Bean and Fowler also look at the development of Soviet tank doctrine, the impact of Stalin's purges on the tank forces, and their use in combat from the small-scale clashes in the Far East to the apocalyptic fighting on the Eastern Front between 1941-45. A little lacking on precise details of the sub-variants of some of the tanks, but otherwise very good.
