I have just read ‘THE T-34 RUSSIAN BATTLE TANK’ by Matthew Hughes & Chris Mann. In addition to tabulating T-34 production by year and type, they state categorically that there were no T-34s produced in 1945. So who is right? 19. 90. 28 (talk) 04:10, 12 July 2008 (UTC). In June 1941 the Germans had no tank capable of defeating the T34, or even surviving an engagement with it, as one hit from its 76-millimeter gun would destroy any German tank outright, while its own angled armor rendered it well nigh invulnerable to the low-velocity German tank guns-most of which were still 50 millimeters or worse.

As the book makes clear, the T-34/85 had firepower, armour protection and mobility far superior to other tanks then in service

As the book makes clear, the T-34/85 had firepower, armour protection and mobility far superior to other tanks then in service. Examining every aspect of the tank’s development and service history, including detailed sections on design, armament, powerplant, crew positions and armour, the book contains detailed listings of all the variants produced, their markings, camouflage schemes, and full specifications. Ideal for modellers and tank enthusiasts, the T-34 Tank is an essential guide to this masterpiece of Soviet wartime engineering

Matthew Hughes and Chris Mann in their 2002 work The T-34 Russian Battle Tank note, The presence of the T-34/76 in 1941 proved to be a rude shock for the Germans. Compared to other Soviet tanks, the T-34 was able to take on and destroy the best of the German panzers. The T-34 combined punch with mobility in a single superb package. Note Hughes and Mann, The T-34 had firepower, armor protection and mobility far superior to other tanks then in service. In particular, its broad tracks and low ground-bearing pressure meant it could keep going on soft ground where German tanks often became bogged down-crucial for warfare on the Eastern Fron. .

Examined and fully illustrated are all aspects of T-34 development and service histories, including sections on design, variants, armaments, powerplants, crews, and armor. Specification tables offer design drawings and comparisons to T-34 contemporaries which were, in most cases, far inferior to the Russian tank.

This is generally a very good book but with some inconsistencies. The discussion of the prototype A-20 and A-32 antecedent designs of the T-34 is reasonably good.

The production table on page 51 is incorrect, I believe. It appears to be off by a year. For example, it shows that the German "Panther" was produced at the rate of 1768 in 1942 and 3749 in 1943. This cannot be correct, as the "Panther" was first deployed at Kursk in July of 1943. I think these production numbers should be for 1943 and 1944 respectively. Similarly, the table shows that 11 000 T-34/85s were produced in 1943 and 7650 in 1944, with zero production in 1945. These numbers must be for 1944 and 1945 respectively.

There are also inconsistencies in the table on page 51 and figures given in the text. For example, page 63 states that production of the T-34 was 5000 in 1942 versus 15 800 in the table on page 51. Page 64 states that production of the T-34 was 6000 in 1943 and "...only a small proportion were T-34/85s." Yet the table on page 51 shows a total production of 14 500 in 1943 of which 11 000 are claimed to be T-34/85s.

Page 64 also states that "...in 1944 65% of the new tanks rolling off from the tank factories were the new T-34s with the 85 mm gun." The table of page 51 shows that 100% (7650) of the tanks produced in 1944 were T-34/85s. Something is clearly amiss here.

The best book I have found on the development of the Soviet T-34 and other Soviet tanks is "The Tanks of Operation Barbarossa -- Soviet Versus German Armour on the Eastern Front" by Boris Kavalerchik (2018).
Eigeni
Authors Hughes and Mann have created a very short, concise, accurate history of the T-34 Russian tank. The first 20 pages review the history of Soviet tank design before WW2, how they came about making the decisions that led up to this war winner. It was not at all inevitable, and it was a classic case of just enough of the right thing at the right time. Prototypes were introduced in 1939.

The T-34 evolved into a war winner, but original designs had serious flaws, along with lack of training, parts, supply and tactics, it would take several years to really take charge of the battle field. An almost perfect blend of protection, firepower and mobility combined with a staggering 40,000 produced led to victory. Many variants were made; many were exported to other countries. It saw service in Korea and other wars as well.

In addition to the text, there are six pages of color diagrams to show the T-34, and two pages of 3D cutaways. There are also photos of the interior of the tank and 3 pages of specifications. The book addresses the armor, weapons, design, and engine of the T-34. It is objective citing the flaws as well as its strengths. Not a perfect book for modelers, but provides a very readable, enjoyable and informative book about the Allies best tank of WW2. Given the size of the book, there really is not much to criticize.

It is more comprehensive than the Squadron/Signal T-34 in Action, but certainly not as thorough as the more recent T-34 Mystical Weapon. Originally priced at $18.00 it was a good buy and a solid addition to the library.

The best thing about this book is the number of illustrations, mostly B&W, showing the T34 in its various models. The text explains the history of tank development in the Soviet Union which led up to the T-34, then provides a summary of WWII on the Eastern Front and some perspective on how the T-34 was involved.
However, this is strictly an introductory book. It does not provide detailed information on the differences between the variants of the T-34. If you are a modeler looking for reference material, this book has useful photos but it isn't the source to tell you exact differences in turret hatches between models. Similarly, while it covers the T-34's general employment in the war, it does not provide much in the way of tactical detail or low-level descriptions of combat.
The writing is stilted and poorly edited, but the authors' meaning can be discerned.

This book is a must have for any wwII armor enthusiast. As a crafter of wwII Russian and German military dioramas, I think it's a must have for detailed scale work. have fun.
