The author Igor Nebolsin continues with his detailed chronology of the 2nd Guards Tank Armys combat operations. This volume includes the hard fighting outside of Warsaw in the summer of 1944; the 1st Belorussian Fronts winter offensive in the Vistula Oder operation and the ensuing combat in Pomerania; and the final assault on Berlin, when the 2nd Guards Tank Army enveloped the German capital from the north and entered the city from north and west, fighting its way to the Tiergarten Park in the heart of Berlin. The author also briefly discusses the 2nd Guards Tank Armys subsequent history as part of the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany, its eventual disbanding in 1997, and its reconstitution four years later on 4 September 2001. As with the first volume, the author s study is based upon the Armys operational documents from the Central Archives of the Russian Defense Ministry and recollections of its veterans, and received the active cooperation of Major-General Anatoly Shvebig, who was formerly a deputy commander of the 2nd Guards Tank Army s 12th Guards Tank Corps. It includes objective after-action reports from the Armys commander General Bogdanov and its subordinate formation commanders. Of note in this volume are General Bogdanovs recommendations for a tank armys table of organization and equipment and its proper use in combat operations, written shortly after the war ended. Illustrated with numerous images and supplemented with detailed tables, this volume completes the exhaustive study of the 2nd Guards Tank Army, Stalins favourite. Contains approx. 450 b/w photos, numerous tables, 16pp colour maps.

 

About the Author

Igor Nebolsin is a contemporary Russian military history researcher, from Novosibirsk, Russia. Both of his grandfathers were Soviet officers and veterans of World War Two. He is a son of a Soviet tank officer. From an early age he has been passionately interested in Eastern Front armored battles of the 1943-1945 period. Igor graduated with honor from the Academy of the National Economy under the Government of Russia in Moscow and earned a Masters degree at the University of Warwick (UK), where he successfully completed his dissertation. He is a keynote speaker at Russian WWII armored units' veterans' conventions. The Russian edition of his book on the 2nd Guards Tank Army and a study on the 1st Guards Tank Army both received high praise from Major-General Vitaly Jaroshevsky, the Chairman of the Russian Armor and Tank Units Veterans' Council. Currently Igor is working on a two-volume combat history of the Soviet 1st Guards Tank Army in WWII. His books are singled out for his primary research of archival data, views from both Russian and German sides and the human factor, which makes for fascinating reading. Igor is an active participant of international military forums. He is married and has two sons.
