The greatest tank battles of history from the Great War to the Gulf, examined by one of Britain’s bestselling military writers.

The story of the evolution of armoured warfare in the 20th century, which has seen tanks and other armoured vehicles develop from lumbering, primitive and vulnerable Goliaths to the immensely potent and manoeuvrable agents of lightning battlefield success. This is a collection of the greatest moments of armoured history from the conception of the tank as a means to break the stalemate of the Western Front to Blitzkreig, the great tank battles of the Second World War and the ‘mother of all battles’ in the Gulf in 1991.
