5.0 out of 5 stars Probably best tank/AFV book you can get today
This is a compilation of two books by George Forty that was printed before (one about tanks, other about AFVs). If you don't own them, you should go for this book, as it's just excellent. I have got several AFV encyclopedias from various authors, and this it definitely my favourite one of them all - not only the graphical design is very good (what sadly is often not true...

3.0 out of 5 stars Deja Vu !!
This book is nothing more than two earlier books reprinted in a smaller format and joined together under one cover. Don't know if I can identify them here,so it's probably best to "try before you buy". If you don't own the originals,you'll find this a good buy. The content is excellent,and it's great to have everything under one cover in a portable package,although you...

3.0 out of 5 stars Deja Vu !!, 3 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The World Encyclopedia of Tanks and Armoured Vehicles: Features A-Z Catalogues and Fact Boxes for Tanks, ARVs, Tank Destroyers, Command Versions, ... ... and Other AFVs (Illustrated Encyclopedia) (Hardcover)

The content is excellent,and it's great to have everything under one cover in a portable package,although you may need a magnifying glass to read the miniaturised text ! However,if you own the originals as I do,and are expecting something new you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably best tank/AFV book you can get today, 18 Sep 2012
This review is from: The World Encyclopedia of Tanks and Armoured Vehicles: Features A-Z Catalogues and Fact Boxes for Tanks, ARVs, Tank Destroyers, Command Versions, ... ... and Other AFVs (Illustrated Encyclopedia) (Hardcover)
This is a compilation of two books by George Forty that was printed before (one about tanks, other about AFVs). If you don't own them, you should go for this book, as it's just excellent. I have got several AFV encyclopedias from various authors, and this it definitely my favourite one of them all - not only the graphical design is very good (what sadly is often not true when it comes to tank/AFV books), but the number of vehicle depicted in the book as well as the level of detail is superb. And as the author is both military historian, ex-UK tank corps serviceman and a curator at the british Bowington tank museum, he definitely knows the subject a lot.
