All the principal tanks are represented – Renaults, Matildas, Churchills, Shermans, Panzer IVs, Panthers and Tigers along with many others – so the book gives an insight into the rapid development of tank design during the war. It also shows how vulnerable these armored vehicles were – and how lethal they could be for their crews – when they were hit by antitank guns and air attacks.
Tanks Wrecks of the Western Front will be absorbing reading and reference for anyone who is interested in the history of armored warfare, and it will be a useful visual guide for modelers.
"...Anthony Tucker-Jones has selected a fascinating visual guide to the fate of the numerous types of tank employed by the American, British, French and German armies throughout the conflict." ~AMPS Indianapolis
"The book also has more text than usual, with nice encapsulations of the different models." ~Historical Miniatures Gaming Society
"Many of the included images could be the basis for and number of dioramas, with partially burnt-out tank hulls, completely destroyed tanks, or tanks laying on their backs." ~IPMS/USA
I really can recommend this series of books but not only do you have the pictures the text and
information around the photos are so good stories. ~The UK Historian
