ISBN 0-304-35128-8 Published by Cassell Military Paperbacks 1995 209 pages not counting bibliography etc. The blurb states the book is on the evolution of armoured warfare from World War 1 onwards. It is not so much an evolution as a series of excerpts of individual actions or battles with a token description of armoured tactics, strategy and use. The accounts of battles/actions are quite good with focus on individual performances as well as overall goals. The book ends with the Gulf War of 1991 and also covers actions in Korea and Vietnam. The Australian detachments in Vietnam get a mention. Interestingly a chapter ( a small one) is devoted to the Japanese officer and his sword, who climbed into a Grant intending to take it out and the resulting fight in the turret. (remember that thread? - so not only do we have Merlins letter, we have it in a book) Overall I'd call it light reading, though the print is small :wink: As I don't intend keeping it I'm happy to mail it to any member interested.
