Part of a "trilogy" about these early tanks, the MK IV was the most produced version used during the war. Full of information as to the updates from the Mk I-III and the differences found between where the vehicle was manufactured it is also a great basic history of the Tank Corps and the use of the tank by the BEF. I also really liked the main color illustration of a vehicle under construction which shows much more detail than just an exterior view with cutaway.
