I first read this book 13 years ago, as a Cavalry Officer, I thought it was a great book then. After losing that copy and now buying another one I still think its one of the best of its kind. Not too big but with everything you want to know about the development of the tank and armoured warfare since the tank first appeared on the battlefield nearly one hundred years ago.
The book is fully illustrated with photographs, cutaway drawings, maps, diagrams and unique panoramas which depict vital moments on the battlefield.
However the highlight, for me, in this book is the Gun versus Armour tables that appear through the book. These tables compare the main armament of tanks against the armour of opposing tanks and vice-versa from the same era.
All up a very good book which is still current and I highly recommend it to new and old armoured warfare enthusiasts alike.

This book, maybe based in a good idea, shows a good example of those war history books that base all their references in Western and, specially, nazy bibliography. The WWII, which occupies more than half of the book, shows an ideallistic idea of the panzerdivisionen, only defeated by number by the allies. In the North African and Italian campaigns, Montgomery is showed as a new Nelson, and the American contribution appears as a just industrial one. Names such as Patton doesn't ever appear.
In the Eastern Front, the situation is even worse. It shows the T-34 (really the best medium tank of the war) as a very inferior machine as it really was, and the soviet victory appears severely minimized in numbers and technical and tactical successes. Clearly the author has just readed the nazi version to read this book, and show also a heavy British chauvinism.
