Details

These memoirs by a Russian tank rider present a frontline view of the horrific combat that was the Eastern Front from the Kursk battles of 1943 to the fall of Berlin in 1945 . . . This is a no-frills account written from an infantry platoon leader's perspective that in this case is from the back of a tank far in advance of the main Russian forces ... Asobering look at Russian small-unit tactics, which focused on results without regard for the individual soldier. Bessonov recounts the courage and fear, bravery and stupidity of all those in his military family, both above and below him.

Soft cover, 254pgs, illustrated, index. As new. .
