In 2012, the company that created World of Tanks, the phenomenal world-wide massive, multi-player online game, started publishing a series of books in Russian that utilized Soviet documents and archival materials that had never before been seen by outsiders or published in any language about the design, procurement, development, manufacturing, and combat employment of Soviet armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) during World War Two (the Great Patriotic War to Russians). Now these remarkable books are being published in English with the obvious aphorism The Russian View. Hundreds of photos, illustrations, tables, and diagrams tell the story about the development of the SU-152 tank-killer.
