It is a typical Zaloga Osprey Duel series book in that it is informative and draws appropriate conclusions, namely that it is not just technological advantages that decide the outcome, but also the tactical situation as well as the training of crews etc. What does make this one different is that it features a campaign about which I knew nothing. There was a lack of information about the Eastern front in the West until the 1990's, in that we knew about Kursk, and then "jumped" to Berlin, with a brief interlude for Warsaw, and it is only now that information about the offensives in between is becoming more readily accessible

Regardless of how you see the value of each AFV these books offer considerable insight and invaluable detail into each vehicle and while I have yet to see the actual comparisons listed I'm sure that it will make good, if contentious, reading.

StuG III Vs T-34 is a new addition in the OSPREY series DUEL. Fred Boucher [JPTRR] thinks modelers will find a wealth of photographs - color and B&W, interior and exterior, wartime and present day - certain to support detailing, or simply to inspire building one of these AFVs.
