British Tanks in Russian Civil War 1919
Permalink   


I'm a journalist researching the involvement of British tanks in 1919 action at Tsaritsyn (later Stalingrad, now Volgograd), particularly a detachment of Mark Vs and Whippets commanded by Major Ewen Bruce. I'd be grateful for any information or guidance.

Thank You

All 3 are very good. The Russian book, obviously is written in Russian..

Good luck.

The books
Gone to Russia to Fight deals with the RAF is South Russia but does have some info on the Tanks at Tsaritsyn.

The Tanks Volume I (I think that the title of it deals with the actions of British tank units pre WW II)

If this is inappropriate then please delete.

I was talking to a model-making friend the other day about armour on the Russian side at the start of the German attack. He sent me the attached photo from (I think) an eBay auction which I share for discussion only. Not sure what the main armament is but thought it might interest somebody.WW1 tank in Russia Barbarossa.jpg
