Review

Mushroom Model Publications is a book company based in Redbourn, Herts, UK. They are in partnership with Stratus based in Sandomierz, Poland, where their books are printed in the English language. The majority of the books they have produced, so far, have been on various aircraft. However, a few have started to appear on armor subjects. This new book is one of them.

The book is in 11 5/8” x 8 ¼” page format in soft-cover. It is 80 pages long. This latest Green Series book from Mushroom Model Publications (MMP) covers the colors and markings applied to the T-34/76 tank, the early version of what has been widely considered to be the best medium tank of WW2. It was a major influence on all subsequent tank designs. It served in huge numbers, with 35,000 being produced. Camouflage colors and schemes, unit, tactical and individual markings are described and illustrated, both for the Red Army and the many other operators of this tank. These operators range from Soviet allies, both during and after the war, to the German and other enemy armies (such as Finland, Italy, and pro-German Russian units).

There is one information chart in the book that shows the production totals for various factories that built the T-34’s.

Many of the photos in the book have not previously been published. The walk-around shots include both interior and exterior shots.

The book will be an invaluable reference source for military enthusiasts and scale modelers alike. Highly recommended.

I want to thank Mushroom Model Publications (MMP) and Casemate for this review sample.
