Nato and Warsaw Pact Tanks of the Cold War


19 October 2022

Almost as soon as WWII ended, the Soviet occupation and implementation of puppet regimes across Eastern Europe mean the Cold War began. At this point, the T-34-85 was better than anything the Americans had and the arms race began.

As the author confides at the start, this isn’t an exhaustive guide, it’s a look at the main players from all sides in the Cold War, setting the scene for why each tank was introduced and what it had to offer. As such, it’s done chronologically, with plenty of photos, both colour and mono, on the high quality, glossy paper, making it a great introduction to the subject.
