Author Michael E. Haskew, editor of World War II History magazine, devotes six pages each to 50 of history’s most significant tank designs, from Britain's Little Willy prototype and the Soviet T-34 to the M1A2 of today’s U.S. armed forces. Learn about each tank's critical design elements, including firepower, protection, powerplant, and mobility. Detailed cross-section illustrations and close-up photographs give you an up-close view seen only by the elite few who’ve operated these indomitable fighting vehicles, with text to provide historical context. The oversized “coffee table” format is filled with more than 300 archival photographs, detailed artwork and maps. A book any military buff, tank enthusiast or model builder will really get into.
