Book Description

1 Jan 2012
The second volume of the only encyclopaedia to bring together the technical, historic, and operational aspects of the tank in the 21st century Now at the very start of the 21st Century, the latest combat tanks are being designed and manufactured in the emerging countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. In this second volume of an important series on modern tanks, the history of these new participants is recounted within the context of the long lineage of the Russian tanks. Numerous technical details are provided here for the first time in print, giving the reader a complete understanding of the technologies utilised in tank development. Both volumes on the modern combat tank represent the only encyclopaedia to bring together the technical, historic, and operational aspects of the tank in the 21st century.

1.0 out of 5 stars This must be published in English! 10 Nov 2013
I do not own this book, but have seen it at model shows, and it is an excellent book, but only if you read French. I have deliberately given it a low rating to try and persuade H&C that they should still do an English-language edition (which was actually originally announced, and which I had ordered through Amazon) of both this and the companion volume.

It is sheer stupidity to do a book that contains information on British tanks and not do an English-language edition! In fact, as an encyclopedia, it should have been done in English anyway. H&C needs to realize that, on a worldwide basis, they are likely to sell far more books in English than in French. They continue to make peculiar decisions as to which books to do in English. Books on entirely French subjects can be done only in French, but any volume with international appeal should also be done in English.
