Overview


The British invention of the Tank during World War I revolutionized land warfare. Twenty years later, tanks and other armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) played a key role in the major theatres of World War II. The German Tiger, the American Sherman and the British Churchill - all are names that have become legendary - but there were also many other key vehicles used by the land armies as they fought for supremacy in two hemispheres. Bren Gun Carriers, Armored Personnel Carriers and many other combinations of gun and mobility were invented to fight in different terrain. The desert of North Africa, the frozen plains of Russia and the rolling countryside of central Europe all presented different challenges. This book provides an introduction to the most famous weapons and gives technical specifications of armor, engine and ammunition, together with performance figures for each vehicle featured.
