"(D)etails over 900 tanks, armoured personnel carriers, tank destroyers, reconnaissance vehicles, armoured cars and self-propelled guns, from the British Mk I tank of World War I to the German Tiger of World War II, and the American M1 Abrams seen today. It covers not only the major manufacturers in the US, UK, Germany, France, and Russia, but also the vehicles produced by smaller nations, presenting a complete global commentary on the world's amoured combat machines. Organized by country, then by vehicle type, you will find the manufacturing history, key dates, and main theatres of action for each machine, as well as insights into the engineering attributes and limitations of each vehicle. Each entry includes a comprehensive specification table, detailing all the essential data: armament, crew, dimensions, speed, range, engine types and power output. With authoritative text and 1,000 photographs and high-quality colour artworks, many of them showing the internal components of the vehicles, (this) is a unique reference book - essential reading for experts and general military enthusiasts alike."
