TREAT EM ROUGH The Birth of American Armor 1917–20


The author brings these early days of the Tank Corps to life. Using eyewitness accounts from the archives at the Army War College and elsewhere, he details the design and building of the first tanks, the training of crews, the monstrous problem of transport in an age when roads were built for horse-drawn carriages, the evolution of armoured combat doctrine and the three great battles in which tanks revolutionised modern warfare: St Mihiel, Meuse-Argonne, and St. Quentin. This book is well written, organised, and very informative.
