Hungarian Armored Forces In World War II Book Review
|Date of Review||August 2018||Title||Hungarian Armored Forces In World War II|
|Format||132 pages, softbound||MSRP (USD)||$29.95|
With tiny Croatia, Hungary remained the only Axis combatant to fight beside Nazi Germany to the bitter end.
Now Peter Mujzer details, distills, and dissects its World War II armored assets in a copiously illustrated effort from Kagero.
Hundreds of crisp, clear, chronologically arranged photos with captions cover all Hungarian armored vehicles – domestically manufactured and imported.
Tanks. Assault guns. Armored cars. Mobile artillery. And half-tracks. Even armored trains and war booty. Support equipment, too. Trucks, towed field guns, anti-aircraft batteries, transports, and more.
Text tracks all major designs, deployments, and developments of Hungarian armored forces – domestic and international – before and during the conflict, including clandestine between-wars endeavors to rebuild the nation's devastated military and pre-WWII clashes.
Units. Actions. Movements. And, of course, associated equipment. It's all here – packed into just 132 pithy, picture-packed pages. Just excuse the occasionally awkward English, and savor Mujzer's revelations.
Twenty superb color profiles by Arkadiusz Wróbel sample the stunning swath of Hungarian armor warpaint. Competently colorized B&W photos offer diorama inspiration. And eleven pages of line drawings illustrate Hungarian-produced vehicles. But what scale are they?
