Summary, etc.:
In this lavishly illustrated book Philip Kaplan tells the story of the tank's development and of the men who rode into battle on board their tanks, from the Somme in 1916 to the Gulf War of 1991. In doing so he draws upon the accounts - many previously unpublished - of veterans which vividly convey what it was like, for example, to drive in a British Mark II as it led an attack on a German position at Ypres in World War I, or how the commander of a Tiger tank single-handedly halted a British armoured thrust in Normandy in 1944.
