At last not a WWII book!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Band of Brigands: The First Men in Tanks (Paperback)
Considering that tanks were invented in WWI their story has achieved very little in print compared to that of WWII. This well written book partial address this as it presents the story of early tank development. It is a mixture of politics, battles, technical developments and personal stories, and it manages to get the whole story over in a both informative and interesting way. If you want to know more about the period then this is definitively a must buy. Probably the most interesting thing is the sense of just how haphazard the development was and how it very nearly didn't start at all coupled with how bad the new 'wonder' weapon performed compared to what you expect of a modern tank.
