From experimental tractor to victory-the story of tanks in the Great War This comprehensive and erudite perspective of the development and actions of allied battle tanks was written by a British Army officer who was the Chief General Staff Officer of Tank Corps during the First World War from the end of 1916 to August, 1918 and is therefore written from a position of undeniable authority on its subject. The tank force in action on the battlefield on the Western Front and in the Middle East is described in detail and all the engagements in which tanks took part are fully considered. Also covered are tank tactics, mechanical engineering, crew training, supply companies, signalling and other aspects of armoured warfare including cooperation with air forces. Allied tank forces, notably the French and American contributions are also described, as are the endeavours of the Germans both in terms of developing tanks and their measures to destroy allied tank attacks. Light tanks and Armoured cars are also covered by this excellent book which includes numerous excellent photographs, diagrams and maps. Essential reading for all students of armoured warfare in the modern age. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket.
