    From Bessarabia to Belgrade: An Illustrated Study of the Soviet Conquest of Southeast Europe, March-October 1944

    The Red Army reached northeastern Rumania in the last days of March 1944. Stalin had high hopes that the 2nd and 3rd Ukrainian Fronts would be able to quickly conquer the Balkans. But those hopes were not to be fulfilled. Bulgarian researcher Kamen Nevenkin’s From Bessarabia to Belgrade covers the military history of the bloody fights in southeastern Europe from March to October 1944. This is a short study, illustrated with numerous never-before-published wartime photographs.

  • Bloody Vienna

    PZW 9786155583261

    34,50

    Bloody Vienna: The Soviet Offensive Operations in Western Hungary and Austria, March-May 1945 book.

    The Soviet Vienna Operation began on 16 March 1945 when the assault armies of 2nd and 3rd Ukrainian Fronts succeeded in penetrating the Axis defence between Esztergom and Lake Balaton. It ended less than a month later, on 13 April 1945, when all its objectives were achieved, and Vienna was taken.

    The defeat at Vienna inflicted a mortal blow on the Nazi economy – the Third Reich lost its important economic regions in Hungary and Eastern Austria that were still largely untouched by the war.

    Finally, the victory at Vienna allowed Stalin to solidify his presence in Central and Eastern Europe and legitimize his absolute dominance over the region. The Western Allies and the small democratic countries of Western Europe were forced to realize that the Red Army wouldn’t fall back and return to its homeland, but would stay and erect an iron curtain behind which communist regimes would be installed. Thus, the Soviet Empire expanded to the west, and Europe was divided for the next 45 years.

    Penned by a leading Bulgarian researcher, the book provides an expert analysis of this battle. A considerable number of German and Soviet wartime documents were accessed, and this allowed the author to tell the story from the perspective of both sides. It also contains many never-before-published photographs.

  • Last Panzer Battles in Hungary: Spring 1945

    PZW9786155583292

    49,95
    ENGLISH

    In the last phase of the Second World War the Sixth Panzer Army was the last army available to the German military leadership which was more or less intact and was capable of launching a major offensive. After it had been withdrawn from the Western front in the aftermath of the failed Ardennes counter offensive, it was replenished with men and gears as fully as was possible in the given circumstances, and as a result it almost regained its 1944 autumn strength. It would not have been a surprise if it had been deployed on German territory against the Allied troops advancing to Rhine, or in Silesia or in the Baltics or even if it had been sent as a reinforcement to the Army Group Vistula to defend the distant approaches to Berlin against the advancing Soviet army – reinforcement and fresh troops capable of launching counter offensives were desperately needed everywhere. But it happened otherwise: the Sixth Army was deployed in Hungary and participated in the Operation Spring Awakening, launched in the western part of the country on 6th of March, 1945. This was the last German “big offensive” in the course of the Second World War.

    En la última fase de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el Sexto Ejército Panzer fue el último ejército disponible para el liderazgo militar alemán que estaba más o menos intacto y era capaz de lanzar una gran ofensiva. Después de haber sido retirado del frente occidental tras la fallida contraofensiva de las Ardenas, se reponía con hombres y engranajes lo más completamente posible en las circunstancias dadas, y como resultado casi recuperó su fuerza de otoño de 1944. No habría sido una sorpresa si se hubiera desplegado en territorio alemán contra las tropas aliadas que avanzaban hacia el Rin, o en Silesia o en el Báltico, o incluso si se hubiera enviado como refuerzo al Grupo de Ejércitos para defender los frentes distantes de Berlín contra el avance del ejército soviético: se necesitaban desesperadamente refuerzos y nuevas tropas capaces de lanzar contraofensivas en todas partes. Pero sucedió lo contrario: el Sexto Ejército se desplegó en Hungría y participó en la Operación Spring Awakening, lanzada en la parte occidental del país el 6 de marzo de 1945. Esta fue la última “gran ofensiva” alemana en el transcurso de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

    PZW 9789198477580

    Red Machines 2: SU-100 Self-Propelled Gun book

    The Red Machines Series is devoted to the hardware of the Red Army. Each book offers in-depth information, much of it new to the west, as well as a large number of photos, of which most are unpublished. Each book includes blueprints, drawings, colour profiles and data tables, to describe the development and production variants of each vehicle.

    The SU-100 was the Red Army’s most powerful medium tank destroyer of World War 2 and was developed for anti-tank fire support to the T-34-85 in the same way as the SU-85 had complemented the original T-34. As with the SU-85 before it, the SU-100 was delayed in entering service.

    Although introduced late in the war, the SU-100 was heavily engaged in the final push into the Axis countries, with major combat engagements in Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and in the assault on Berlin. The SU-100 proved a particularly potent “Zveroboi” or “animal hunter” in that it could easily dispatch Tiger, King Tiger and Panther tanks at medium range. The vehicle had no secondary armament, however, and proved vulnerable when engaged in close fighting without infantry support as occurred during some of these late war battles.

    Post-war, the SU-100 remained in Soviet Army service for many years, being subject to several capital repair upgrades over the decades. The SU-100 was also exported in large numbers, particularly to the Middle East, and was produced under licence in Czechoslovakia as the SD-100.

    About the Authors

    James Kinnear was born in the UK in 1959. James has researched Russian military hardware following his first visit to the Soviet Union in 1973. Since then he has written hundreds of articles on Soviet and Russian military technology. A Russian speaker, he has studied the subject from within the military-intelligence community and as a civilian author.

    Nikolai Polikarpov is the chief editor of “M-Hobby”, the first and only Russian monthly magazine for military modellers, which has been in publication since 1993. The founding of the magazine was a natural extension of his hobby of building scale models. The desire to build models which were an exact replica of the original full-scale prototypes naturally led to the study of the development and operational history of military vehicles during World War Two, including archive research and the measurement of preserved museums examples. This led to the publication of numerous reference articles in “M-Hobby”, and also a series of Russian books and monographs regarding the history of Soviet combat and transport vehicles. The publishing of books and articles led to membership of the Union of Journalists of Russia and ongoing work in popularizing military history in various publications.

  • Battle of Britain 1940 – The Luftwaffe’s ‘Eagle Attack’

    In August 1940, the Luftwaffe began an operation to destroy or neutralize RAF Fighter Command, and enable Hitler to invade Britain that autumn. It was a new type of air warfare: the first ever offensive counter-air campaign against an integrated air defence system. Powerful, combat-proven and previously all-conquering, the German air force had the means to win the Battle of Britain. Yet it did not.

    This book is an original, rigorous campaign study of the Luftwaffe’s Operation Adlerangriff, researched in Germany’s World War II archives and using the most accurate data available. Doug Dildy explains the capabilities of both sides, sets the campaign in context, and argues persuasively that it was the Luftwaffe’s own mistakes and failures that led to its defeat, and kept alive the Allies’ chance to ultimately defeat Nazi Germany.

    En agosto de 1940, la Luftwaffe comenzó una operación para destruir o neutralizar el Comando de combate de la RAF y permitir a Hitler invadir Gran Bretaña ese otoño. Era un nuevo tipo de guerra aérea: la primera campaña de contraataque ofensiva contra un sistema integrado de defensa aérea. Poderosa, probada en combate y previamente vencedora, la fuerza aérea alemana tenía los medios para ganar la Batalla de Gran Bretaña. Sin embargo, no fue así.

    Este libro es un estudio de campaña original y riguroso de la Operación Adlerangriff de la Luftwaffe, investigado en los archivos alemanes de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y utilizando los datos más precisos disponibles. Doug Dildy explica las capacidades de ambas partes, establece la campaña en contexto y argumenta persuasivamente que fueron los propios errores y fracasos de la Luftwaffe los que llevaron a su derrota, y mantuvo viva la oportunidad de los Aliados de derrotar finalmente a la Alemania nazi.

    Bill Reed had it all ­- brains, looks, athleticism, courage and a talent for leadership. After a challenging childhood in Depression-era Iowa, Reed joined the US Army Air Corps, but the outbreak of World War II saw him give up his commission. Instead, he travelled to China to fly for the American Volunteer Group – the legendary Flying Tigers. After a brief return to America, he resumed the fight as a senior pilot and later squadron commander in the Chinese-American Composite Wing. Soon afterwards, Reed tragically lost his life in a desperate parachute jump late in the war, by which point he was a fighter ace with nine confirmed aerial victories. His obituary was front-page news throughout the state of Iowa.

    This book is a biography of his extraordinary life, focusing on his time spent flying with some of the famous aerial groups of World War II. It draws heavily on Reed’s own words, along with the author’s deep knowledge of the China air war and years of research into Reed’s life, to tell his compelling story.

    Bill Reed lo tenía todo: cerebro, apariencia, atletismo, coraje y talento para el liderazgo. Después de una infancia desafiante en la era de la Depresión de Iowa, Reed se unió al Cuerpo Aéreo del Ejército de los EE. UU., Pero el estallido de la Segunda Guerra Mundial lo vio renunciar a su comisión. En cambio, viajó a China para volar para el Grupo de Voluntarios Americanos: los legendarios Tigres Voladores. Después de un breve regreso a América, reanudó la lucha como piloto principal y luego comandante de escuadrón en el ala compuesta chino-estadounidense. Poco después, Reed perdió trágicamente su vida en un desesperado salto en paracaídas al final de la guerra, momento en el que era un as de combate con nueve victorias aéreas confirmadas. Su obituario fue noticia de primera plana en todo el estado de Iowa.

    Este libro es una biografía de su vida extraordinaria, centrada en el tiempo que pasó volando con algunos de los famosos grupos aéreos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Se basa en gran medida en las propias palabras de Reed, junto con el profundo conocimiento del autor sobre la guerra aérea de China y los años de investigación sobre la vida de Reed, para contar su convincente historia.

    During the Great War, the assault tanks in the German Army merely played an anecdotal role. Due to the restrictions enforced by the Treaty of Versailles, the first training unit for armoured forces wasn’t organised (secretly) until 1933. The existence of the first three Panzerdivisionen of that new German Army was officially revealed in 1935. The armoured troops or Panzertruppen were an independent branch of the Army, with their own command. This allowed concentrating the tanks in divisions so units were capable of significantly strategic deployments. General Heinz Guderian forged both words: Panzerwaffe to refer to the armoured force and
    Panzertruppen to identify the elitist armoured troops which would conquer half of Europe in the following years.
    The evolution of the camouflage schemes painted in tanks and vehicles of German armoured units is analysed in the book along with the organisation of these German units during WWI and WWII and the whole interwar period.

    Durante la Gran Guerra, los tanques de asalto en el ejército alemán simplemente jugaron un papel anecdótico. Debido a las restricciones impuestas por el Tratado de Versalles, la primera unidad de entrenamiento para las fuerzas blindadas no se organizó (lo hizo en secreto) hasta 1933. La existencia de las primeras tres Panzerdivisionen de ese nuevo ejército alemán se reveló oficialmente en 1935. Las tropas blindadas o Panzertruppen eran una rama independiente del ejército, con su propio mando. Esto permitió concentrar los tanques en divisiones para que las unidades fueran capaces de despliegues significativamente estratégicos. El general Heinz Guderian acuñó ambas palabras: Panzerwaffe para referirse a la fuerza blindada y Panzertruppen para identificar las tropas blindadas elitistas que conquistarían la mitad de Europa en
    los años siguientes.
    La evolución de los esquemas de camuflaje pintados en tanques y vehículos de unidades blindadas alemanas se analiza en este libro. Junto con la organización de éstas unidades alemanas durante
    la Primera y la Segunda Guerra Mundial y todo el período de entreguerras.

    In the Six Day War, some 860 enemy tanks were captured by the IDF, including some 280 T-54/5 tanks. Within a few years, 146 of them were introduced into service as Tiran 4/5. This book tells their story, a story of the only army that introduced a great number of enemy tanks into prolonged service. The Tiran tank did not really suit the IDF’s needs. It was in many ways a bastard tank. However, the IDF creatively tried to take advantage of all that it had to offer. It was used like no other tank—as a low-grade “bonus” reserve tank unit for wartime, as a mine-clearing tank, as a unique tool for special operations, and as an artillery cannon designated for destroying SA-3 anti-air missile batteries. After many alterations, the tanks were eventually incorporated in a Tiran 4/5 brigade, as part of a special tactical task force designed to conduct an armored maneuver in the Egyptian flank.Abteilung 502 and Desert Eagle Publishing bring us the second volume of the Captured Vehicles in IDF Service Series. A new series for those who build models, love tanks and like history. The series focuses on the widespread and unique use the IDF made of tanks and armored vehicles captured in Israel’s wars with its Arab neighbors. The series is based on academic research, official IDF documentation, and interviews conducted with soldiers and officers who used these vehicles in real time. An amazing book that will surprise you.

    En la Guerra de los Seis Días, el IDF capturó unos 860 tanques enemigos, incluidos unos 280 tanques T-54/5. En pocos años, 146 de ellos se pusieron en servicio como Tiran 4/5. Este libro cuenta su historia, una historia del único ejército que introdujo una gran cantidad de tanques enemigos en servicio prolongado. El tanque Tiran no se ajustaba realmente a las necesidades del IDF, era en muchos sentidos un tanque bastardo, sin embargo, el IDF intentó aprovechar creativamente todo lo que tenía para ofrecer. Se usó como ningún otro tanque: como una unidad de tanque de reserva para tiempos de guerra, como un tanque de limpieza de minas, como una herramienta única para operaciones especiales y como un cañón de artillería designado para destruir anti baterías de misiles aéreos SA-3. Después de muchas alteraciones, los tanques finalmente se incorporaron en una brigada Tiran 4/5, como parte de una fuerza especial táctica diseñada para llevar a cabo una maniobra blindada en el flanco egipcio. Abteilung 502 y Desert Eagle Publishing nos traen en el segundo volumen los vehículos capturados al servicio del IDF. Una nueva serie para quienes construyen maquetas, les gustan los tanques y les apasiona la historia. La serie se centra en el uso generalizado y único que el IDF hizo de tanques y vehículos blindados capturados en las guerras de Israel con sus vecinos árabes. Basado en investigaciones académicas, documentación oficial del IDF y entrevistas realizadas con soldados y oficiales que utilizaron estos vehículos en tiempo real. Un libro sorprendente que no te defraudará.

    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    This new volume is devoted to JG 5 ‘Fighters of the Midnight Sun’. Nothing predestined young German fighter pilots to fly and fight among the grandiose landscapes of Norway, Finland or Lapland with their hostile climates. Many of them would find their last resting places in the storm-tossed icy waters of the Arctic Sea or the snow-covered plains of the tundra. Who even now knows that the defeat of the Wehrmacht was precipitated by the failure to conquer Europe’s northern-most small territory?

     

    This latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ tells the story of this fighter Geschwader and its numerous aces on 96 pages, filled with rare and newly translated first person accounts, over 240 photos (many previously unpublished) and 32 specially commissioned artworks that had been created by Janusz Światłoń.

    LUGA JG 54

    29,95

    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    JG 54 was perhaps the most fascinating fighter Geschwader of the Luftwaffe, not least for modellers. This is in large measure due to the variety of non-standard colour schemes worn by the unit’s Bf 109 and Fw 190 fighters as well as the diversity of its emblems and insignia displayed both early and late in the war.

     

    On 96 pages of this latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ we highlight the story of this fighter Geschwader through rare and newly translated first person accounts, 207 photos of which many are published for the first time, and 32 specially commissioned profiles that had been created by Thierry Dekker.

     

  • SPECIAL Luftwaffe Gallery 2 – JG 77 ‘Fighting on Every Front’

    LUGA JG 77

    29,95

    Author: Erik Mombeeck

    Several factors characterise the history of JG 77: the diversity of its origins, the fact that the Geschwader fought on all fronts, flying the Messerschmitt Bf 109 throughout (except for a very brief interlude on Macchi 205), the striking number and quality of its insignia and the fact that it had in its ranks a large number of the leading fighter aces.

     

    Through newly translated personal accounts, over 230 photos and 31 colour profiles, we tell the story of this unit on 96 pages of this ‘special issue’ of Luftwaffe Gallery.

  • SPECIAL Luftwaffe Gallery 1 – JG 26 ‘The Abbeville Boys’

    Author: Erik Mombeeck

    In the Luftwaffe Gallery series, this expanded special edition is devoted to JG 26, the famed ‘Abbeville Boys’ or ‘Abbeville Kids’ of RAF and USAAF legend. This superb new title provides an unparalleled view of air combat in the skies of Britain and France, from dog-fighting between Messerschmitts and Spitfires during the campaign in the West and the Battle of Britain, to fighter bomber missions over southern England, to the Allied invasion of Normandy and the desperate sorties flown by the unit’s Fw 190s against the huge USAAF bomber streams.

     

    On 96 pages, you’ll find 28 superb colour profiles created by Thierry Dekker, over 240 photographs and newly translated personal accounts.

    Fallen Stars 1 – Crashed, Damaged and Captured Aircraft of the USAAF

    Fallen Stars 1 is the first in the new Aircraft Pictorial Series from Canfora Design & Publishing. This series showcases high-quality photos of crashed, damaged and captured US, German, Japanese, British, Soviet and French aircraft. This first volume focusses on the USAAF. The most challenging task in developing this series was selecting images for the first book. There were many outstanding photos to choose from, and ‘competition’ for placement grew fierce. The result is an excellent visual reference for aviation historians, modellers, and WWII aircraft enthusiasts. All of the classic USAAF fighters and bombers are reproduced.

    The photos speak for themselves, and the publisher does not let extraneous text get in their way, apart from short but enlightening captions. The reader’s ability to spot details never ceases to amaze and based on the photo interpretation skills of the global audience; we suspect that you will have a lot of fun analysing this collection of images of distressed US Army Air Force aircraft in World War II.

    Fallen Stars 1 will be followed by reprints of Tom’s previous Grounded Eagles 1 & 2, in addition to a new volume 3 on German aircraft. Setting Suns on Japanese aircraft will also be reprinted under the new series label and a volume on early war aircraft.

    Illustrated study of the vehicles designed, developed and produced at the M·A·N plant in Nürnberg during the period 1934-1945. Although the production of trucks was, and remains, an essential factor in the company’s success, it was M·A·N’s experience designing armoured fighting vehicles during the ‘30s and early ‘40s that led to the Pz.Kpfw.V ‘Panther’ in 1942 for which it is most renowned during WWII.

    Estudio ilustrado de los vehículos diseñados, desarrollados y producidos en la planta M·A·N en Núremberg durante el período de 1934 a 1945. Aunque la producción de camiones fue y sigue siendo un factor esencial en el éxito de la compañía, fue la experiencia de M·A·N en el diseño de vehículos blindados de combate durante los años 30 y principios de los 40 lo que llevó al Pz.Kpfw.V ‘Panther’ en 1942 a convertirse en uno de los vehículos más famosos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

    Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf.B: Construction and Development

    The Tiger Ausf. B combined the pros and cons of German tank design and construction. Ideas for the Tiger II were based on previous designs and omitted excesses and disadvantages of earlier vehicles. This is the tank that allows us to evaluate what the German tank industry achieved and what could have happened in future developments. The book deals with the background and development of the Tiger Ausf.B, production history and construction features, as well as evaluation of the captured vehicles by the Red Army during field testing.

    From Leningrad to Narva: An illustrated study of the battles in the northern Baltic area, January-September 1944.

    In January 1944, the Red Army finally succeeded in putting to an end one of the most dramatic sieges in the history of warfare; that of Leningrad. Soviet spearheads quickly dislodged the Wehrmacht from the city, but once they reached the prewar border with Estonia, they were stopped dead in their tracks by a very determined Axis resistance. There, at the river Narva, Germans, Estonians, and Waffen-SS volunteers and conscripts from all over Europe stood firm for several months against numerous Soviet attacks. By doing so, they were able to cripple the ambitious military and political plans of Joseph Stalin and to effectively postpone the Soviet liberation of the Baltic States for six months.

    Written by a leading Bulgarian researcher, the book provides an expert analysis of this little-known battle. A considerable number of German and Soviet wartime documents were obtained which enabled the author to tell the story from both sides. The book contains many unpublished photographs.

    The Soviet Army on Parade 1946-1991

    The Soviet Army on Parade 1946-1991 is author James Kinnear’s sequel to the widely acclaimed The Red Army on Parade 1917-1945.

    Canfora’s most ambitious project to date, the second in three-volume series describes the tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery and rocket systems paraded by the Soviet Army on Red Square from 1946 until the last Soviet-era parade in November 1990. From massed tank displays of the immediate post-war parades, to the introduction of strategic rocket systems during the ‘Khrushchev’ years, all the weapons displayed on Red Square during the Cold War are described in detail.

    The background military history of the Soviet Union during the Cold War years and the philosophy involved in the weapon developments is also related, building the overall picture of Soviet parades as a projection of Soviet military might.
    Tasty Tidbits

    Since the Russian Revolution in 1917, the Soviet Union and now the Russian Federation has demonstrated its latest tanks and military vehicles on Red Square for Russian domestic and foreign consumption.
    The annual May and November military parades were in 1946 joined by a ‘Tankman’s Day’ parade, celebrating the day Red Army forces crossed into Axis territory in 1944.
    Soviet tanks such as the T-54 had their Red Square public debut almost a decade after they entered service, while some rocket systems, although often displayed, never entered service.
    One of the best locations in Moscow to watch the parade was the former US Embassy building, past which the parades moved onto Red Square, while the British Embassy overlooked the return route.
    The start of the May 1960 parade was delayed while Khrushchev decided whether or not to order the shooting down of an American U-2A USAF/CIA reconnaissance aircraft flying over Siberia.

    For 100 years since the Russian Revolution in 1917, the Soviet Union and now the Russian Federation, has shown its latest tanks and military vehicles on Red Square for domestic and foreign consumption.
    The November 1940 and May 1941 Red Square military parades were deliberately altered so as to not display the latest Soviet tanks to foreign military observers, as the Soviet Union prepared for total war.
    The November 1941 Red Square parade was conducted under the auspices of a military operation rather than a ceremonial parade, at a time when Wehrmacht tanks were within 16 kilometres of the Kremlin. The tanks on parade carried a full ammunition load and were sent directly to the front line after the parade.
    The November 1941 parade was staged twice, once at dawn to avoid potential air attack and a repeat performance in daylight for the press.
    The June 1945 Victory in Europe Parade was one of the largest parades held on Red Square.
    Victory over Japan parades were held in the Soviet Far East in September 1945. These parades featured tanks recently in combat.

    T-14 Armata Main Battle Tank book

    Russian armour guru James Kinnear looks at Russia’s revolutionary new T-14 main battle tank. Packed with 150 full-colour photos over 80 landscape pages, this is a must-have reference for modern armour modellers and covers the T-14’s design, development and features full walk-around photographic coverage. The perfect companion if you are building Takom or Zvezda kits!

    The T-14 ‘Armata’ Main Battle Tank (MBT) made its public debut in May 2015, at a time of renewed tensions between Russia and the United States and its NATO allies. The appearance of the T-14 ‘Armata’ was for Western observers as much a revelation as the IS-3 heavy tank that made a shock appearance in the Victory Parade in Berlin in September 1945. After years of making do with updating Soviet-era tanks, the T-14 ‘Armata’ is the first genuinely new post-Soviet Russian design.

    The T-14 is technically sophisticated and the first with a fully automated turret entirely devoid of a crew as one of many new design features. However, the tank is however expensive to build and maintain compared to the T-90 and T-72B3 MBT types and requires significant crew training compared with other tank types.

    The ‘Armata’ is a showpiece of military engineering, but the upgrade of earlier T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks is now being pursued in parallel as a more cost-effective solution for everyday needs. Whether the development T-14 ‘Armata’ will become a series, albeit limited production tank, or remain a technical showpiece has yet to be seen, but there is no doubt that it has made the impression it was intended to
