Alright chaps.

I am looking to get a few books about tanks during WWII, ideally want mostly pictures as already have some technical and first hand accounts of tank warfare in the war.
Mostly interested in Soviet armor.

Thanks for your help

I don't know about tanks, but about WWII in general I'd suggest an author named Anthony Beevor.

If you want info about the Eastern Front in general, I would suggest to read some of retired U.S. Army Colonel David M. Glantz.

He get's access to Russian archives.

He also debunks some of the biggest myths about both the Russian and German armies.

He has a very good trilogy about the battle of Stalingrad, which I would like to suggest to read.

I forgot the name of WG's specialist (which is pretty stupid, big name etc.) who can probably give some pointers.

Nicholas "The Chieftain" Moran is his name. Not sure how to contact him though. He's on the U.S. Wargaming team (as far as I know)
