Overview



A highly developed form of protected, mobile striking power, tanks are the successors to war chariots and armored elephants used by armies of ancient times. Designed to be used as part of large infantry units (as in World Wars I and II), or as a separate striking force (as in the Gulf War of 1991), the modern tank is a formidable weapon of war.
This comprehensive coloring book of 44 accurately rendered illustrations chronicles the development of tanks and other armored vehicles — from the "Little Willie" (1915) to the British Challenger 2 main battle tank (MBT) (1994). Also included are these vehicles: Rolls Royce Armored Scout Car (1916); British Mark A Whippet (1917); Japanese Type 95 (1935); French Char B1 (1937); British A12 Matilda (1940); German Panzer III (1940); Russian T-34 (1940); American M4 Sherman (1942); American M26 Pershing (1945); Russian T-72 MBT (1973); American M113 Armored Personnel Carrier (1961); Israeli Merkava MBT (1980); and 30 more.
Detailed informative captions accompany each illustration in a book sure to be enjoyed by military buffs and colorists alike.
