Synopsis: A century of the weapon that changed modern warfare.
In 1916, for the very first time, the tank entered the military arsenals at a small engagement on the Somme. And despite its shortcomings, it altered the course of World War I. Tanks charts the weapon’s first century, from its early stumbling attempts to the lethal killing machines of today: the technical developments, the various types and models, the tacticians who used it best, and the famous battles where they played a role. The book also contains 20 removable documents from the archives of the museum, including diaries from tank soldiers, blueprints, instruction manuals, and handbooks.

About the Author: Robin Cross specializes in military history. He has written over 30 books, including The Battle of Kursk (Penguin) and VE Day (Sidgwick & Jackson Ltd). He has contributed to over 150 television documentaries.

David Willey is the curator of The Tank Museum in Dorset. He has contributed to many Haynes manuals on tanks.

The Tank Museum receives 170,000 visitors per year. It holds the biggest and best collection of tanks and military vehicles from around the world. It is located where the first tank training took place prior to the first use of tanks on the Somme. The land is owned by the Ministry of Defence and the museum is used as part of tank-crew training by the MoD. The museum has strong links to the hugely successful World of Tanks game.
