Tank Warfare in the Second World War : An Oral History by George Forty( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The tank is only as good as its crew, who are required to fight in a noisy, jarring, explosive-filled "box," knowing that, at any moment, they could be blown to bits. Lieutenant Colonel George Forty, who himself served for 32 years in Britain's Royal Tank Regiment, has gathered a vast range of firsthand accounts from the crewmen of both Allied and Axis powers, covering every theater of the war. The accounts are sometimes deceptively humorous, typifying the bravado shown by soldiers in the face of danger; almost all are revealing and deeply affecting. Illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs, Tank Warfare in the Second World War is essential reading for those interested in military history
