Many books have been written about the Uprising in Warsaw, but ne have been written in this detailed manner describing the use of the armored weapons of war. Tanks in city environments had, earlier during World War II only been used very rarely, since it is very difficult to use them properly in built up areas. The Uprising in Warsaw was unique, as both sides used tanks in the battle. This book gives a concise picture of the vehicles and the weapon systems that were used. The appendix of the book, in addition, gives lots of interesting facts such as: a list of the units in the Polish Home army and the German army, every vehicle presented in a picture with technical specifications and also many detailed colour illustrations. Tanks in the Uprising is a must for anyone who wants to kw more about the Uprising in Warsaw!
