The World's Great Tanks

From 1916 to the Present Day


This book gives a good history of the tank and the configurations of various tanks from the very beginning of the tank to present day. The book is broken apart by WWI, between WWI and WWII, WWII and after WWII. It also describes various modifications different countries did to the basic tank design. I found it interesting that the term tank came from British code name for it (referring to a tank that would hold liquids). This book made me realize that the tank really hasn't been around in the world for very long and how quickly it has developed since 1916.
