There is no doubt that the clash of armored forces on the Eastern Front during World War II was the greatest such encounter between similar opposing forces in the history of modern warfare. Since this situation was quite similar to the air war over Western Europe, it could be said that the war in Western Europe was won by the Allies thanks to combat aircraft, while the war in Eastern Europe was won by the Soviets thanks to tanks. If the war in Western Europe showed how modern air warfare looked, the war on the Eastern Front typified the image of modern warfare on the ground. Almost four years of war changed the style of warfare, but it is interesting to note that these changes, though small, were very important. They constituted the next step in the evolution of the pre-war concept of armored warfare.
