The British Tanks, 1915-19 tells of the difficult birth of a whole new weapon. From the schemes and plans of the mid-nineteenth century to the introduction of the first tanks into service and their baptism of fire, it is a fascinating and well-researched story. That the tank went on to become an important feature in World War Two and to the present was far from certain in its early days.
Renowned tank authority, David Fletcher, tells of the experiments, the design and production of the early tanks and their use in the battlefield up to and beyond the Armistice in this eagerly-awaited addition to the Crowood Armour series.
