Description

Bruce Quarrie (1947-2004) was a prolific author and military historian. He wrote over forty titles, mostly on the Second World War, and edited many more. Len Deighton described him as "one of our most meticulous and well-informed historians”.

The Russian Front was a critical battlefield in World War II, involving millions of men and tens of thousands of tanks, guns and aircraft. It was a campaign of enormous armored battles over an area larger than Western Europe. Bruce Quarrie’s work is an authoritative account of the actual campaign and the weapons used by both sides. It also discusses the best ways these can be reproduced on the table top as a wargame.

Contents include a summary of the campaigns, well-illustrated with numerous maps, plus technical specifications and performance data for the vehicles, tanks, guns and aircraft used. Further chapters cover the organization and tactics of the armies, terrain, climate, firing tank and anti-tank guns, infantry movement and firepower, as well as specialist subjects such as partisan warfare, minefields and tank recovery.
Chapters include: a summary of the actual campaign, technical specifications for vehicles, tanks, guns and aircraft, terrain, communications, visibility and navigation, firing tank and anti-tank guns, 'brewing-up', air operations, the Long Range Desert Group and minefields and supply.
