The True Story of the Lend-Lease (05.30, 13.30, 21.30)

By mid-July 1941 the majority of tanks which comprised the 20,000-strong Soviet tank fleet had been lost. The Wehrmacht troops were advancing relentlessly and were approaching the Russian capital. Each Soviet tank  at the front was treated as treasure. That’s when the Lend-Lease supplies proved very timely. The first English Matilda and Valentine tanks arrived in the USSR in September 1941, and a month later they were already tested in action during battles near Moscow. In the third installment of The True Story of the Lend-Lease series, Paul Tadich continues to discover the unknown facts about the co-operation between the Soviet Union and the Allies during World War II.
