The development of the T-54, which was as revolutionary as the T-34 was in WWII, was a joint effort by a number of talent Soviet technicians, particularly Aleksandrovich Morozov, who designed the T-34's transmission.

This polished book then looks at the various initial designs for the T-54 and some of its spin offs, while regaling the reader with colour photographs of various elements. There’s a nice Appendix as well, with lists of model variations, technical data, build numbers and an annotated cutaway illustration.

 

With high production standards, copious photos and inside details from Soviet sources, it’s a great guide to one the Soviet Union’s best tanks.
