This is an illustrated A - Z directory of tanks, AFVs, tank destroyers, command versions and specialized tanks from 1916-45. It covers topics ranging from the prototype No. 1 Lincoln Machine "Little Willie" to the Panzers and D-Day Funnies. It includes the Medium A Whippet and Marks I, IV and V of World War I through to the Sherman, Panzers and T-34s of World War II, plus inter-war American light tank developments and wartime Japanese designs. It features over 275 identification photographs, many from the world-famous Tank Museum in Bovington. It examines the history of the tank and the main battles in which tanks have fought, including the Somme, Cambrai, Blitzkrieg, El Alamein, Kursk and D-Day. It includes detailed specification boxes for every tank listed, with information about country of origin, date, crew, weight, dimensions, armament, powerplant and performance, plus a glossary of military terms and abbreviations. The tank was initially developed as a new weapon to break the stalemate on the Western Front after the First Battle of Ypres in 1914. This magnificently illustrated book begins with a history of the tank, from the first tank action in World War I to campaigns of World War II such as Blitzkrieg and D-Day. It contains a substantial A-Z guide to tanks from 1916-45. Specification panels give each tank's official name, country of origin, date, crew, weight, dimensions, armament, armour, powerplant and performance. With over 275 archive and modern photographs, this volume provides key information about the tanks of the first half of the 20th century.
