"When reading about World War 2 from a Soviet point of view, it is quite easy to come to the conclusion that the T-34, KV series and Joseph Stalin tanks were the only tanks fielded by the Soviet Union during WW2. Any historian or WW2 enthusiast will be able to tell you that the T-34 was the most mass-produced tank by the Soviets in the war. So, what came second? KV? Stalin? It was actually the Su-76, so how about a third? To my complete surprise, the answer is apparently the T-60 which is the subject of this book by Canfora Publishing…."

Small quibble. The SU-76 is not a tank.

As to the book I have enjoyed other works by Kinnear and may find room on my shelves for this one.

For each of the tanks produced a non turreted SP gun version. The chases of the SU-76 was the T-70.

I understand but no matter the base components the SU-76 is not a tank. The SU-76 may have been the second most produced AFV just not the second most produced tank :)

I also note this his Red Machines 1. Hoping this means a series on various Russian WW II armored vehicles. Would be very welcome.

Was the British Mark I a tank? What about the Mark V? :)
