As I came to replying to quite a few general WWII subjects, I was interested in where you other forum guys get your infos from.

As for WW2 books: Personally, I've read a book by Sir Basil Liddel Hart (forgot the title I'm afraid), I've got a very excellent book by a Frenchman called Raymond Cartier dating from the 1960s (Cartier was the editor-in-chief of the French newspaper Paris-Match) and I've read Galland's autobiography.

So my sources are not all completly up-to-date, but most of it is surprisingly true still after all those years. ;-)

As for websites, well, just about anyone here knows 'Achtung Panzer' (http://www.achtungpanzer.com) and probably also http://www.battlefield.ru. But I've also found another website that deals with all warring faction's tanks (http://users.swing.be/tanks.edito/edito/3398.html).

What do you other guys use? :feedback:

somewhat on topic, the world at war is by far the best documentary i've ever seen. About as unbiased as humanly possible, TONS of footage, good accounts for all sides of the battle (axis and allied) even interviews with top people in the war, like that old coot Donitz. Provides many details, but i guess the downside for us would be its more focused on the war itself, so dont expect to hear how the t34 was superior to the pziv or whatever. I have it on dvd and its good stuff.

What do you mean? I just started this T-35 on the 20th. Its a hi-poly model. You might be thinking of the T-28 model I made that was low poly. which Im not sure will be in this mod, I doubt it. But there is always hope..

I recommend a book by Franz Kurowski called "Panzer Aces". It contains alot of good storytelling involving the personal experiences of (you geussed it) German panzer aces. I suspect that it may be bias, but it is still quite an interesting and enjoyable read.

anyone got production numbers of T-28 and T-35? Sure hope they skin the t-28 since it would be good to have a medium tank vs japanese 39', finns 39-40 and germans 41 before the t-34 entered.
