Red Steel (Book) Review
by Warfare Magazine
Publisher: Shilka Publishing
Author: Russell Phillips
Buy Red Steel from Amazon
Red Steel is full of descriptions and introductions of Soviet tanks and Combat Vehicles of the Cold War - essentially doing exactly what is says on the tin.
Although Phillips uses technical language throughout, it is easy to understand, and each description is complete with a black and white image of the vehicle in question. The introductions are succinct and don't faff about with fluff, and useful specifications are supplied.
This is perfect for amateurs and modellers, although enthusiasts might want something a bit more in-depth. Otherwise, though, this is a fantastic little reference book that can be dipped in and out of whenever the reader chooses.
Well done Phillips.
