From the differences that distinguish the various models to the national philosophies that led to particular characteristics, Tanks covers the evolution of tank designers’ efforts to develop the best mobility, armor protection, and firepower for their countries’ ground forces.
The story of how the world’s tanks have developed over the decades does not follow a strict timeline, but is a tapestry in which each design, from the earliest days to modern production, is influenced by the rich history of its predecessors. Tanks illustrates landmark tank designs from every major tank-producing nation via a series of black-and-white and color images from World War I through today.
Featured tanks from around the world and through history include:
· American M4 Sherman and M48 Patton
· American M1 Abrams
· German Panther
· German Tiger E
· Russian T34 and T55
· Russian T72
· British Centurion
· French AMX-13
· Israeli Merkava III
