Overview

Although, to the casual eye, all British tanks of World War I look much the same, the Mark V is quite outstanding and has a strong claim to be the tank that won the Great War. In this title, renowned tank expert David Fletcher examines the technological developments that made this tank excel where others had failed, and the reasons why it gave the British the upper hand over the Germans on the battlefield and why it was adopted by the US Tank Corps. Accompanied by detailed artwork showing the design changes that allowed the Mark V to breach the widest German trenches, this title is an excellent resource for the study of the armour of World War I.

From the Publisher

“Accompanied by detailed artwork showing the design changes that allowed the MArk V to breach the widest German trenches, this title is an excellent resource for the study of the armor of World War I.” —Model Retailer (July 2011)

“... provides a good overview of what was arguably the most important tank used in World War I. I highly recommend it for both its narrative and for the large variety of the clear photographs.” —Jeff Leiby, IPMS/USA
