Riot Control Vehicles: 1945-Present #219 Osprey New Vanguard, Chris McNab
1 Riot Control Vehicles: 1945-Present #219 Osprey New Vanguard
Chris McNab UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472805151 / 9781472805157 Soft cover New Book 
Fully illustrated with a mixture of dramatic archive photos and manufacturers' images, this volume covers the little-known history of riot control vehicles. It explores the world of these vehicles from 1945 through to the present day - from adapted military armoured cars such as the Humber Pig (UK) and BRDM (Soviet Union) to the fully computerized systems of the Russian Lavina-Uragan and Canadian INKAS Armored Riot Control Vehicle - showing how their development and deployment has blurred the lines between civilian actions and military operations. It charts how the vehicles have evolved in terms of technology and layout, and also details how the associated weapon systems have been refined over time, from water cannon and tear gas launchers to subsonic sound waves and microwave energy. The operational history of the vehicles is explained in the dramatic context of major incidents across the world, from the streets of Northern Ireland and Eastern Europe to the favelas of Brazil and the battlegrounds of Iraq.

Polish Armor of the Blitzkrieg #224 New Vanguard, Jamie Prenatt
3 Polish Armor of the Blitzkrieg #224 New Vanguard
Jamie Prenatt UK Osprey Publishing 2015 147280824X / 9781472808240 Soft cover New Book 21.0 x 15.0 x 2.2 cm Henry Morshead 
The Polish army during the Blitzkrieg conjures up tragic images of infantry and dashing, but ineffective and ultimately doomed cavalry charges. In actuality the Poles, in the midst of a large-scale re-armament programme, had up to 600 armoured vehicles available at the time of the German attack, as well as a number of newer and better designs in various stages of development. Facing the inventors of the 'Lightning War', who attacked in great numbers, on multiple fronts and with total mastery of the air, the Polish armoured formations were up against it. But outdated equipment, doctrine and enormous odds did not stop these units from fighting with bravery and determination before being finally overwhelmed. This volume is a complete technical study of the machines that formed the backbone of Poland's defences on the ground, using never-before-seen photographs and a comprehensive design and developmental history that reveal a full picture of Poland's armoured forces in the context of their greatest challenge.

Tanks: 100 Years of Evolution, Richard M. Ogorkiewicz
4 Tanks: 100 Years of Evolution
Richard M. Ogorkiewicz UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472806700 / 9781472806703 Hardcover New Book 
Tank presents a comprehensive account of the world-wide evolution of armoured vehicles from their inception a century ago to the present day, starting with a detailed reappraisal of the development of tanks and how they evolved during World War I. By the end of that conflict tanks had gained considerable importance. However, this was not sustained in its immediate aftermath and a revival only began when the British Army started in to experiment in the 1920s with a more mobile use of tanks. The subsequent rise of the importance of armoured vehicles was accompanied by and was partly due to the advances in their design and performance achieved in Europe and America before World War II. The enhanced capabilities that tanks consequently acquired enabled them to become the core of combined-arms, mechanized formations. Professor Ogorkiewicz has worked in the field of armoured vehicle development since the 1970s, and this is a serious, analytical study on the history of tank development and armoured warfare. About the Author From 1972 to 2006 Professor Richard Ogorkiewicz was an independent member of several boards and committees of the Defence Scientific Advisory Council of the Ministry of Defence. Since 1979 he has been lecturing on armoured vehicles to Army Command and Staff at the Royal Military College of Science, now part of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, and since 1988 has been a Visiting Professor there. He is the author of three books on armoured vehicles. Since 1988 he has been consulting editor of IHS International Defence Review, contributing to it numerous articles on armoured vehicles, and since 1993 has also been a trustee of the national Tank Museum at Bovington.

T-26 Light Tank: Backbone of the Red Army #218 Osprey New Vanguard, Steven J. Zaloga
5 T-26 Light Tank: Backbone of the Red Army #218 Osprey New Vanguard
Steven J. Zaloga UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472806255 / 9781472806253 Soft cover New Book 
The T-26 was the first major Soviet armour program of the 1930s, beginning as a license-built version of the British Vickers 6-ton export tank. Although the T-26 retained the basic Vickers hull and suspension, the Red Army began to make extensive changes to the turret and armament, starting with the addition of a 45mm tank gun in 1933. The T-26 was built in larger numbers than any other tank prior to World War II. Indeed, more T-26 tanks were manufactured than the combined tank production of Germany, France, Britain, and the United States in 1931-40. This book surveys the development of the T-26 as well as its combat record in the Spanish Civil War, the war in China, the border wars with Poland and Finland in 1939-40, and the disastrous battles of 1941 during Operation Barbarossa.

T-64 Battle Tank: The Cold War's Most Secret Tank #223 Osprey New Vanguard, Steven J. Zaloga
6 T-64 Battle Tank: The Cold War's Most Secret Tank #223 Osprey New Vanguard
Steven J. Zaloga UK Osprey Publishing 2015 147280628X / 9781472806284 Soft cover New Book 24.8 x 18.4 x 0.5 cm Adam Tooby and Ian Palmer 
The T-64 tank was the most revolutionary design of the whole Cold War, designed to provide the firepower and armour protection of a heavy tank in a medium-weight design. It pioneered a host of new technologies including laminate armour, stereoscopic tank rangefinders, opposed-piston engines, smooth-bore tank guns with discarding sabot ammunition, and gun-fired guided projectiles. These impressive features meant that the Russians were loath to part with the secrets of the design, and the T-64 was the only Soviet tank type of the Cold War that was never exported. Written by an armour expert, this detailed technical history sheds light on the secrets behind the Cold War's most controversial tank, revealing how its highly advanced technologies proved to be both a blessing and a curse.
