Reseña del editor:

This book features more than 400 tanks and military vehicles, including ARVs, tank destroyers, bridgelayers, mine-clearers and other Funnies; and trucks, artillery tractors, half-tracked vehicles, ambulances, missile transporters and amphibious vehicles. It puts each vehicle into the context of the key battles and campaigns in which they played a role, such as the Somme, Cambrai, Blitzkrieg, El Alamein, Kursk, D-Day, Korea, Vietnam, and the Iran-Iraq, Arab-Israeli and Gulf wars. It includes "Little Willie", Sherman, Panther and Challenger tanks; and the Jeep, DUKW, Kubelwagen, Land Rover and "Humvee". Specification boxes provide complete information about each vehicle's country of origin, date, crew, armament, powerplant, transmission, suspension, brakes, electrical system, dimensions, weight and performance. The two books in this authoritative box set offer a comprehensive guide to tracked and wheeled vehicles. The World Encyclopedia of Tanks features tanks and their derivatives, such as ARVs, tank destroyers, command versions, bridgelayers, mine-clearers and other Funnies. The World Encyclopedia of Military Vehicles covers the cargo/troop-carrying trucks, wreckers, tankers, ambulances, communications vehicles and other specialized types that provide technical support to the front-line troops. With over 1000 photographs from museums and libraries, these books provide enthusiasts, historians and modelmakers with a superb guide to this fascinating subject.
