Review of "The Red Army of the Great Patriotic War 1941-5," by Steven J. Zaloga

 Review of

The Red Army of the Great Patriotic War 1941-5, by Steven J. Zaloga ISBN 0850459397

Four out of five stars

Uniforms and arms of the Red Army ground troops

 There are many types of history books of the Second World War in Europe, in this one the emphasis is on the uniforms and equipment of the ground troops of the Soviet Red Army. While there is some actual history of how the war was conducted, most of the text deals with the specifics, even down to a list of the various rank insignias.

 This is not a book for the person interested in battle tactics or what the military leaders did. However, if you are interested in what the Red Army soldiers wore and the weapons they used, then this is a book that you will find very valuable.
