Tank Warfare in the Second World War
An Oral HistoryBook - 1998
The tank is only as good as its crew, who are required to fight in a noisy, jarring, explosive-filled "box," knowing that, at any moment, they could be blown to bits. Lieutenant Colonel George Forty, who himself served for 32 years in Britain's Royal Tank Regiment, has gathered a vast range of firsthand accounts from the crewmen of both Allied and Axis powers, covering every theater of the war. The accounts are sometimes deceptively humorous, typifying the bravado shown by soldiers in the face of danger; almost all are revealing and deeply affecting. Illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs,Tank Warfare in the Second World Waris essential reading for those interested in military history.
