Line illustrations by John Batchelor. 160 pages, well illustrations, cloth, fine. 8 by 11 inches.

What was it like to drive an early 10-ton Mae West or command a Sherman in battle? Or knock out a German Tiger with the deadly 90 mm. Gun of a Pershing? Would the war in Europe have been won sooner in Autumn 1944 if Patton had had his way and not Montgomery? The answers to such questions will be found in this book and in the words of the Tank men themselves. All American Tanks are covered in this book from lightweight to medium to heavy. Chapters are devoted to unit organization, early light tanks and combat cars including experimental versions, the M3 General Stuart, M5, M22 Locust, M24 General Chaffee, M3 mediums Generals Lee and Grant, M4 General Sherman and M26 General Pershing. Chapters are also included on the tank destroyers, amphibians and tracked armoured landing vehicles.

Weapons covered include anti-tank guns, filed guns and howitzers, anti-aircraft guns, mortars of 81 mm and over and recoilless weapons. Full data is provided on each: calibre, weight, range of gun, where possible a brief history, a list of countries where the weapon is currently used. Since they are coming back into fashion in the west, multiple-rocket launchers are described, as are some of the tracked prime movers that move the guns. The final part of the book contains information on the accessory equipment that has enabled artillery to become increasingly effective in recent years: included are laser rangefinders, computers and complex fire control systems. Tables of characteristics of self-propelled artillery are provided. The information for the text and over 220 photographs were supplied by manufacturers and governments all over the world. Much of the material and many photographs are published here for the first time." CHS10; 192 pages

The British escaped at Dunkirk, and they and the world wondered how the Germans had won such speedy and complete victories. Eric Grove describes the tactics and the weapons they used. Using fast moving armoured divisions supported by dive bombers and motorised infantry they carved up the static defenses of the Poles and paralysed the French army from its high command to the soldiers on the ground. The Blitzkrieg tactics of deep penetration, which avoided any defended localities and plunged into the vulnerable interior disrupting support units, supplies and communications were the war winning formula of 1939 and 1940.; 72 pages
