Overview

This is a detailed look at 42 individual low-level battles spanning 80 years of armored warfare, chosen from as many different scenarios as possible, so that details of less well-known actions are not overshadowed by the more famous. Emphasis is given to the individual tank commanders involved, but without the crew he is unable to engage and destroy the enemy. Supported by a vast array of photographs, maps, and line drawings, here is a comprehensive and carefully crafted evocation of life at the sharp end of tank warfare, as seen from the dramatic perspective of the tank crews themselves.
