256 pp, 4to (12" H). Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w photographs. "(A)n authoritative directory of tanks and their immediate derivatives, such as ARVs (armoured recovery vehicles), tank destroyers, command versions, bridgelayers, mine-clearers and other Funnies. It begins with a guide to the history of the tank and its evolution: the first tank action at Flers during World War I, the Blitzkrieg of 1940, the desert war in North Africa, the D-Day Funnies of the Normandy beaches, tanks used in the jungles of Korea and Vietnam, the Arab-Israeli wars and the two desert wars of the Persian Gulf. Next, there are two A-Z directories focusing on over 230 tanks, the first covering World War I and II and the inter-war years, and the second covering the post-war years. From the world's first tank, the No. 1 Lincoln Machine 'Little Willie', to the contemporary M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tank, with its state-of-the- art weapons systems, the book covers a vast range of armoured fighting vehicles. Each entry includes a lively description and history, with a specification panel detailing the tank's official name, date, crew, weight, dimensions, armament, armour, powerplant and performance. All the tanks are accompanied by identification photographs, many of which are full-colour and have never previously been published together in one volume." This is a new unread book. Fine/Fine
