Tanks

The History of Armoured Warfare

by Robin Cross and David Willey

Hardback Publication Date: 06/09/2018

  $55.35

A century of the weapon that changed modern warfare.

In 1916, for the very first time, the tank entered the military arsenals at a small engagement on the Somme. And despite its shortcomings, it altered the course of World War I.

Tanks charts the weapon’s first century, from its early stumbling attempts to the lethal killing machines of today: the technical developments, the various types and models, the tacticians who used them best, and the famous battles where they played a role—from Flers-Courcellette in 1916 and Kursk in 1943 to the First Gulf War and the Russo-Georgian War of 2008.

The book contains images of memorabilia from the archives of The Tank Museum, including blueprints and instruction manuals.
