The Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) played a major role in World War II. The artillery found it necessary to mechanise some of its field pieces. Armoured cars were called upon to carry out tasks in addition to reonnaissance. Tank destroyers were designed to seek, and destroy enemy armour. Add to this fascinating array such oddities as spedy oversnow Aerosans (armoured, fast sledges) deployed by the Red Army, to enormous siege guns weighing over 100 tons, to small remotely controlled and tracked demolition vehicles, only six feet in length, to the massive and powerfully equipped armoured trains deployed by the Soviet Union and Germany.

From the Publisher:

This comprehensive guide to military history throughout the ages is suresly a must for military history enthusiasts everywhere.

Review:

It has detailed historical development of armoured fighting vehicles & SPG of individual countries in World War Two. Ranges from the most primitive design of small armoured cars to advanced armoured command cars by end of war. It contains over 200 b/w & coloured photos of: armoured cars, commander vehicles, amphibious vehicle, tracked & vehicle mounted self-propelled guns, railway guns, etc. Some of them are rarely seen from other sources. I like the part of AFVs of Italian, Japanese, & smaller countries. Another good armour reference from George Forty. --By A Customer
