TANK BATTLES OF WORLD WAR I
Describes the early tank actions in vivid detail, with many eyewitness accounts explaining the courage and endurance of the crews not just in battle but in the appalling conditions in which they had to use their primitive vehicles. Scalded, scorched, and poisoned with exhaust fumes, constantly threatened with being burned to death, these crews eventually laid the foundation for the Allied Victory in World War I, although the slaughter of the Somme, Passchendaele, and Ypres salient had to be endured before accepted conventional methods were abandoned and the tank given a chance. The book is well illustrated with many original photographs.
