FRENCH TANKS OF THE GREAT WAR Development, Tactics and Operations

£25.00 £6.99

This is the first time an English reading audience has an in-depth account of French World War I tank history. While the British beat the French in introducing the first tanks to the battlefield, the importance of the French contribution to early tank development, both technical and doctrinal, should not be forgotten. In terms of technical achievements, the French FT-17 is likely the most important tank design of the war, heralding the transition from sponson carrying armoured boxes to the more modern turreted tank concept. This is an excellent and well documented history.
