Book Description

This book presents a detailed analysis of the Soviet armed forces during the final days of the war, covering the soldiers that successfully turned the tide against the Nazi onslaught and pushed it back into Germany itself. This final part of the series documents the Red Army's push through Germany to Berlin, which eventually culminated in the surrender of the German forces to the Allies in 1945. It also offers a detailed breakdown of all the armed forces that conducted the offensive campaigns on the Eastern Front, including the army, air force, paratroopers, navy and NKVD troops. It also reveals in colourful illustrations the uniforms and organizations of the Russian forces serving against Japan until the eventual surrender of all Japanese Imperial forces in August 1945.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy book July 9, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like all Osprey books, this one concentrating on late war Soviet uniforms, it is concise, packs good information in a small size and the plates are definitely great for modelers. Hard core enthusiasts will still like this (what don't we like about late war East Front reading?) but find nothing really new to report. If you are just delving into, say Soviet miniatures or figures, excellent starting point. What I feel it lacks the most is showing the wide and varied colors of soviet made uniforms due to different factories, dyes and lend lease cloth. Watch any color videos on the computer for example, and they will show the almost Confederate Army like lack of uniformity among the troops. Gymnastroika(the blouse) rarely matched the trousers and can run from olive to khaki to off white or US olive drab and British brown. While the book doesn't delve that deep, it doesn't pretend to either. This book does show the basics and gives a good printed outline of the period in question. You can't ever go wrong with Osprey books as a valuable resource. Just don't mistake it for an "all you need to know" type of read.

4.0 out of 5 stars The completion of a Soviet WWII trilogy January 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third of three books in the Osprey Men-at-Arms series covering the Soviet Armed Forces in World War II, the period from 1944-45 when the Soviet army seemed unstoppable as it rolled across Eastern Europe and into Berlin. The book, as with many of the Osprey Men-at-Arms titles, has excellent illustrations of Soviet troops in all branches of service, and good detail on Russian formations and order of battle, and is recommended for anyone seriously interested in this period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Resource Guide December 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another in the extensive Osprey Men-at-Arms series of reference books. The material is well presented with lavish photography and the color plates showing to advantage the uniforms of Soviet military figures, from the common Frontoviki to Marshal Sovetskogo Soyuza Stalin. Also included are rank charts, tables of organization of Fronts and Soviet Armies even a chart of Soviet military branch colors. A good source for quick reference and a intro or starter book for further study.
