Reviews

In this book on the history of the tank during that war, the author covers not only the British developments of the tank, but also the German and French and American tank developments... Overall, this is a superb look at these vehicles, their development and their deployment. An excellent primer on the type and one that will augment any military library. A most enjoyable read and one I can easily recommend to you. "Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness, www.modelingmadness.com (July 2009)"

Bartholomew does an excellent job of summarizing the design, development, and proliferation of tanks. Although the tanks initial use in combat in the Battle of the Somme was less than ideal, they soon proved their worth in the Battle of Cambrai. In addition to describing the technical aspects of the first tanks, Bartholomew includes a brief summary of the battles that the tanks participated in -- from both sides of the war. Finally, the includes several photographs of the various tanks in production and action. "Jeff Grim, Collected Miscellany, www.collectedmiscellany.com""
