Dubno 1941: The Greatest Tank Battle of the Second World War Hardcover Version. Describes the battle from a new point of view: that in fact it's not the tanks, but armored units, which win or lose battles. The Germans during the Blitzkrieg era had superior TO&Es for their tank forces. The German Panzer Division could defeat their opponents not by using just tanks, but by using artillery, which included heavy artillery, motorized infantry, and engineers. Also defines the real achievements on the Soviet side: the Blitzkrieg in the Ukraine had been slowed down. For the Soviet Union, the military situation in June 1941 was much worse than it was for France and Britain during the Western Campaign in 1940. The Red Army wasn't ready to fight as a whole and the border district's armies lacked infantry units, as they were just arriving from the internal regions of the U.S.S.R.. In this case, the Red Army tanks became the Iron Shield of the Soviet Union; they even operated as fire brigades. In many cases, the German infantry – not tanks – became the main enemy of Soviet armored units in the Dubno battle. Poorly organized, but fierce, tank-based counterattacks slowed down the German infantry – and while the Soviet tanks lost the battle, they won the war. $70.00 USD
