THE ANTI-TANK RIFLE
80pp., fully illus.in colour, P.B. 2018. Anti-tank rifles became commonplace in the early campaigns of WW2 in Poland and the Battle of France, which saw renewed use in the form of the British .55in Boys anti-tank rifle. Anti-tank rifles continued to be used by the Soviets on the Eastern Front with two rifles, the 14.5mm PTRS and PTRD, and were still in widespread use in 1945. They served again with Korean and Chinese forces in the Korean War, and some have even appeared in Ukraine in 2014-15.
