U.S.A.: Scribner. Cloth.  Book club editionThere have been many books about war and the effects of Combat Vehicles upon it, but this study by a military historian and former tank officer, Kenneth Macksey, and a technical artist, John Batchelor, and is unique in its field. By combining Macksey"s knowledge of the history of mobile warfare and tank technology with Batchelor"s well-known talent for reproducing drawings of machines both accurately and dramatically, something emerges which is much more than a simple anthology of facts, figures, opinions and pictures. This book is a comprehensive, illustrated examination of the underlying reasons why fighting vehicles dominate the battlefield. It gives the tactical, technological, and economic causes for their development from the Third Millennium to the present day. Extremely authoritative yet attractively presented, "Tank" is a serious study of the fundamental aspects of mechanized warfare presented so as to be easily comprehensible to members of the general public as well as to experts. a bit of bumping to boards and some shelf wear,some age staining to dust jacket and pages, otherwise clean, with chips and several moderate tears to the jacket.  Good.+ 1970.
