World War II enthusiasts will almost assuredly find interesting our newest guest author's work: The T-34 in WWII: The Legend vs. The Performance. Author Nigel Askey graduated from the University of Sussex, in the UK, with an honours degree in physics. Since the early 1980s he has taken a keen interest in military history and military simulations. In 1997 he worked as a consultant for Talansoft Inc, on war games in their Campaign Series. The Campaign Series were tactical-operational military simulations of which the most well known are ‘East Front’, ‘West Front’and ‘East Front II’. Since 2003, he has been working on a major project titled Operation Barbarossa: the Complete Organisational and Statistical Analysis. This ongoing project can be viewed at

His article analyzes whether the T-34 deserves its commonly granted title of one of the Second World War's best tanks. Included you will find his take on a number of T-34 related "myths" as well as a breakdown of the tank's actual combat performance.
