Tanks and other Armoured Fighting Vehicles of World War II

By: B T White (891/35874)
Publisher: Peerage Books ISBN: 0907408354
(From the John Laffin Collection

This unique single volume combination of two of the best-selling works on tanks and armoured fighting vehicles covers the years 1939-45, which was the most momentous period in the history of the tank.

From Hitler's devastating 'Blitzkrieg' assaults on Poland, the Low Countries and France in the early part of the war, to the great tank battles of North Africa and the Russian Front, the tank was without a doubt the most significant tactical land weapon of the war. This lively and informative book includes 160 pages of magnificent coloured drawings of such formidable tanks as the German Tiger, the American Sherman, and the British Churchill, as well as many of the other varied, and sometimes bizarre, armoured fighting vehicles which took part in World War II. B.T. White's factual, authoritative text describes each vehicle in a concise and lively style.

This book is divided into two sections, Book I dealing with the 'Blitzkrieg Era' of 1939-41, and Book II covering the years 1942-45, in which some of the greatest tank battles of all time took place.

B.T. White is internationally known as an expert and author on armoured fighting vehicles.
