Armoured Warfare and Hitler\'s Allies 1941-1945

German, American and British tanks come to mind first whenever the military vehicles of the Second World War are considered – they get all the historical attention. The tanks, self-propelled guns and armoured cars built and deployed by the secondary nations in the conflict, in particular by Hitler’s Axis allies, have been almost forgotten. The rarity of these armoured fighting vehicles makes them especially interesting, and that is why Anthony Tucker-Jones’s photographic history is of such value.

His selection of previously unpublished wartime photographs provides a visual record of the armoured forces thrown into action by Hitler’s allies on the Eastern Front from 1941 to 1945. Illustrated here are the panzers deployed by Bulgaria, Finland, Slovakia, Hungary, Italy and Romania on the Eastern Front and in the Balkans. Hungary’s home-made armour included the Toldi and Turán tanks and Zrínyi self-propelled guns. The Italians produced CV-33 tankettes, Semovente self-propelled guns, Autoblinda and Lancia armoured cars and a series of tanks. Romanian and Czech tanks and assault guns were also deployed.
