Named after Klimenti Voroshilov, the Peopleís Commissar for Defense, the KVs proved a nasty surprise for German tank crews during the early days of Operation Barbarossa. Although slow, they were extremely heavily armored. This volume examines the transition from multi-turreted tanks to heavy single-turret vehicles, consisting of the KV-1 and 2, and the increased favor given to the heavy single-turret after the Germans began to develop ammunition capable of penetrating even the thickest armor, whilst detailing the design, development and operational history of the Soviet Unionís monstrous KV series of tanks.
