Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
Since the development of tanks by the British helped bring an end to World War I, tanks have been an instrumental part of every ensuing ground battle. These essential military vehicles have come a long way since the British Mark A Whippet in 1918 and remain a big part of today's missions in Iraq and elsewhere. Providing an equal balance between text and photo, this book describes both the tank and tank operators of today's British and American armies. Did you know, for example, that Britain's Challenger 2 tank costs more than 10 million dollars each and weighs 62 metric tons? Or that a tank crew consists of four members, all of whom must eat, sleep and work together for days at a time? This book details this and more, providing technical and logistical information about everything from the soldiers who operate the tanks to the strategies employed by the enemy to stop them. Destined to appeal to those readers with an interest in military history and development, this book certainly will not disappoint. The text includes a glossary, index, and guide to online resources. For those using this system, the publishers rate the text at guided reading level M. Reviewer: Kris Sauer
