    For anyone interested :3 From one of the best writer in tank design, along with C.Foss and Rolf Hilmes.

    http://www.mediafire.com/view/m1rhhz45kvajeho/[janes]_Technology_Of_Tanks.pdf

    The book has been out of print quite long time ago. and kinda outdated perhaps.. but it's very nice to read.

    Many thanks Stealthflanker, this link works.

    On a separate note is there any book that you know of related to submarine designing? Thanks again.

    collegeboy16, is it possible to download from torrent safely? In other words by remaining anonymous? Most free proxy sites/VPN that I know of,do not work on torrent.

    Actually you can use Tor for torrent downloads. However Tor does give away IP during torrent download.

    The secret archives of Kissinger: http://www.gbip.gr/book/68229/The_secret_archives_of_Kissinger

    Recommended Military/War Books-Publications - Page 2 B68229

    A book by greek-cypriot journalist M.Ignatiou. A review of Henry Kissinger’s dark role in the 1974 Cyprus tragedy.
    One the tragedies that has insolubly wounded Kissinger’s reputation is the 1974 Cyprus events - the Turkish military invasion which led to the island’s division. A situation which remains quite the same until today, making Nicosia the only divided capital city in the world.
    From his side, Mr.Kissinger has supported that the United States couldn’t intervene in order to prevent Turkey’s invasion in northern Cyprus. For more than 30 years, the former U.S. Secretary has tried to "wash his hands" over the Cyprus Issue by arguing that he hadn’t the needed information in order to predict the aftermath of the coup against Makarios. However, Kissinger’s allegations have been decomposed, since the U.S. State Department published specific declassified documents. An important number of such documents certifies that the then U.S Secretary of State had in his hands relevant C.I.A. reports which were prognosticating the Turkish military operation.

    Loyalty is my Honor - basically it is about the Waffen SS and the viewpoints from the soldiers that served in these units .... it is insightful of the mindset of the average Waffen SS soldier ... after reading the book I was none the wiser why so many of the soldiers from these units could be brainwashed into doing the war crimes they were guilty of ... until the whole Ukraine stuff blew up .... it was still a very interesting read of the mindset of the enemy

    Dragon's Wings by Andreas Rupprecht. Book about known chinese built and unbuilt aircraft. All i can say is what a monumental, stupid, grievous, crippling mistake the sino-soviet split was for China, and for USSR as well (along with the "great leap forward" and the "cultural revolution"). China lost 20-25 years of potential technological know-how and advancement.

    thanks for the info, but its not the book i was looking for Russian Weapons in Syrian Conflict”. The book’s editor, Prof. Valery Polovinkin, the book you suggest is about Russian air force by different author. but thanks anyway will give it a quick read.

    Just got a book by a Russian author on kit and uniforms from the Afghan war in the Soviet period.

    It is called:


    Soviet and Mujahideen Uniforms, Clothing, and Equipment in the Soviet-Afghan War, 1979-1989
    By Zammis Schein

    Being published in the US I expected propaganda crap about how bad the Soviets were etc etc...

    But this book is 90% photos of gear from the Authors own collection.

    During the 1980s he taught Afghan girls to speak english and collected all sorts of items.

    The book does not include weapons, only kit and clothing, though it does include ammo.

    I thumbed through it from cover to cover and found it all rather interesting.

    It is a hard cover book of good quality that is a good addition to my library.
