Format: Paperback
The real strength of this volume is that it makes extensive use of the annals and journals of the Tank Corps to tell the lively story of tanks in action in World War I. For here are to be found, between some handy linking information, many of the original reports of tank commanders from the first action at Flers, through to the relatively rapid advances and retreats of 1918 and the new 'Whippets'. If anybody asks what it was like inside the early tanks, this is just about the best answer you can find between covers. My edition is a well produced hard back, this listing refers to a soft back reprint, both have quite a number of b&w illustrations and deserve to be better known and appreciated.

Easily a four star performance - which only leaves one wishing for a bit more analysis, length and detail. Recommended to anybody with an interest in 1914-1918, or the story of the tank, or for general readers who want to get into a little more depth.

I am reading this book at the moment . I'm a bit disappointed that the impression gained from the cover that this is the first hand accounts of the men who fought in those early tanks is a bit misleading , it's more like extracts from the regimental histories of the units that fought. None the less it's a good read and covers the whole war period with some great illustrations throughout. Highly recommended.

In my eyes David Fletcher is the supremo when it comes to tanks. This book is amazing First hand accounts of WW1 warfare.
How men coop up in a tin box ovens managered is beyond me, This book says it all each battle told and says what happen with the Tanks.
Anything you want to know about tanks this author is your man.and is now a M.B.E and well deserved too
