Product Description


“Very few books have been written, even in Russian, on armor in the Russian Civil War. This book, along with its companion volume from Osprey, David Bullock's ARMORED UNITS OF THE RUSSIAN CIVIL WAR: WHITE AND ALLIED, shed much new light on an overlooked phase in the development of armored fighting vehicles.” ―Military Vehicles

“Osprey's books on armored trains and units of the Russian Civil War (RCW) are simply awesome. The Armored Units books have information about each side's tanks, armored cars and train information... [and] discuss all of the armored vehicles... used by the Whites and Reds during the RCW... The information in these books is incredible; the photos provide invaluable information to allow gamers to construct or convert vehicles or additions to trains to suit their wargaming needs.” ―Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)

HASH(0xa7e8ac3c) out of 5 stars The Birth of Soviet Armor May 27 2008
By David L. Bullock - Published on
Format: Paperback
The second classic from an international team, the first covering the Whites and Allies. Here, the Red Army is examined in its earliest years, during the civil war. Dr. Bullock, a former military officer and military historian has assembled a team of experts in their fields. Features include Trotsky's famous command train, the first consolidated list of Red armored trains complete with silhouettes from A-Z. Many of these silhouettes were originally pioneered by the Ukraine's leading armor expert, Mr. Romadin. Russia's foremost author and photo collector of armor, Maxim Kolomiets, has provided several armored train photos. Tanks and armored cars are also covered in detail, depicting the Soviet's first organization and use of these on the battlefield. Features include American tanks in Soviet service, detailed patterns of markings and insignia of tanks, armored cars and armored trains. Additional information and details provided by Alexander Deryabin, son of a famous Soviet General officer. The majority of color plates are by Russia's leading armor artist, Andrei Aksenov, the center plate by England's top armor artist, Peter Sarson. Superb collector and resell value if this edition goes out of print.

HASH(0xa7e8ac90) out of 5 stars A brilliant book Nov. 29 2007
By James D. Crabtree - Published on
Format: Paperback
This volume, though slim, addresses the equipment and tactics used by the nascent Red Army during the Russian Civil War, a subject NEVER addressed in any other book I've ever come across, other than a few lines here and there.

Tanks were, of course, a new technology in 1918. Invented by the western Allies, tanks found their way to Russian depots and later fell into the hands of Red Guards, who promptly used them against the Whites. This book has some rare photos of these machines and discusses their use and numbers. Definitely something you want if you are interested in the Russian Civil War specifically or armored warfare in general.

HASH(0xa7e960e4) out of 5 stars Top notch work Jan. 8 2013
By Lev Murynets - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Just as pleased as i was with the other half of this work, well structured i must say-see the review of Armoured Units of the Russian Civil War: White and Allied

Brings to light an understudied epilogue to ww1, the first conflict which had armoured units in mind and genuinely a war winner. Note the similarities between tactics used (on the white side) and plan 1919

HASH(0xa7e960cc) out of 5 stars A Unique and Worthwhile Book! Feb. 2 2015
By Gilberto Villahermosa - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was so impressed with the information provided in this book that I ordered it and its companion volume in hard copy. This is the only English-language work of its kinds detaining the Red Army's use of armored trains, armored cars, and tanks. Highly recommended for historians and those specializing in the Red Army and armored vehicles.
