Description

A highly illustrated and accessible account of tank warfare through history and around the world.

Explore the development of tank warfare, from its first significant use at Cambrai during World War I to major tank battles of World War II, the Indo-Pakistan War, the Arab-Israeli Wars, the Iran-Iraq War, and the Allied invasions of Iraq. Each of the specially commissioned maps highlights a particular aspect of combat, so they vary in shape and size--from isometric to semi-circular and full-page to double-spread--and in outlook, with some maps giving a global perspective while others take a narrow focus. Major battles such as Villers-Bretonneux, Amiens, Kursk, and the Golan Heights are shown in great detail, and all the maps include a key to help readers to understand the events. With extensively researched text telling the stories behind these conflicts concisely and clearly, the History of Tank Warfare is an invaluable reference.
