First seen during the American Civil War and later appearing in the Franco-Prussian War and the Anglo-Boer Wars, the armored train came to prominence on the Eastern Front during World War I. It was also deployed during the Russian Civil War and the technology traveled east into the Chinese Civil War, and the subsequent war with Japan. It saw service on the Russian Front in World War II, but was increasingly sidelined by its vulnerability to air attack. Steven J Zaloga examines the origins and development of the armored train focusing equally on the technical detail and on the fascinating story of how armored trains were actually used in combat. This title will appeal to armor, military history and railroad enthusiasts alike.

Críticas:

-Valuable as an introduction to a huge and under-explored subject that is finally getting attention in model form. The size of the subject restricts the depth of the coverage as always, but shouldn't put off anyone with an interest in the subject. As always with Steve Zaloga the content is clear and well-written and similarly with Tony Bryan as illustrator, the artwork is excellent.- --David Maynard, Armorama (February 2008)-Steven Zaloga tells the story of these interesting machines and backed by superb period photos and the artwork of Tony Bryan, provides you with an outstanding book on a truly unique subject. Get this one, you'll be pleased you did.- --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (January 2008)-Osprey's books on armored trains and units of the Russian Civil War (RCW) are simply awesome. The Armored Trains book discusses the development of armored trains from the American Civil War (ACW) through its height in the 1920s to WWII... This Armored Trains book is my favorite of the three [from the series] -- not only does it illustrate the trains... but it discusses the tactics in which they were used -- a major plus!- --Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)-I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this new Edition and I'm now ready expand my modeling skills into this area. I've seen several examples of Armored Trains at past Conventions too............ENJOY!!!!!!!!- --Jack Bruno, IPMS/USA (March 2009) "Valuable as an introduction to a huge and under-explored subject that is finally getting attention in model form.

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condición: New. Tony Bryan Ilustrador. Language: English . Brand New Book. First seen during the American Civil War and later appearing in the Franco-Prussian War and the Boer Wars, the military use of the armoured train only came to the fore during World War I, reigning supreme on the Eastern Front. Deployed widely during Russian Civil War the technology spilt over into the Chinese Civil War, and the subsequent war with Japan, the armoured train has played a major role in conflicts during the 20th century, being used during World War II and surviving to the present day -although more as a technological curiosity than a significant weapon. Steven J Zaloga examines the origins and technical development of armoured trains. But rather than provide an encyclopaedic treatment of the many trains, it instead focuses on the more important and fascinating issue of how armoured trains were actually used in combat.
