By David Fletcher
PRE-ORDER: Landships, War Cars & Mechanised Force
Out of print for many years, Land Ships, War Cars and Mechanised Force are effectively prequels to David Fletcher’s two-volume history of British Armour in the Second World War
Originally published by HMSO, The Tank Museum has the rights to republish the original text, complete with a 21st Century makeover.
Landships was a pioneering work on British tanks of the First World War. It examines, describes and illustrates every type of tank built for the British Army, against the background of the battles in which they fought.
Alongside it, War Cars examines the British development and use of Armoured Cars in World War One. Unsuited to the Western Front, they fought with great success in almost every other theatre of war.
We’re merging these two volumes into one title, to create a comprehensive history of British Armour in the First World War.
Mechanised Force is a history of the British tank arm from 1919 to 1939, chronicling events and innovations between the wars. It’s the most comprehensive book on the subject, describing every design, prototype and production vehicle.
These books are now available to pre-order as part of a special collector’s edition pack.
The first 500 orders included a certificate signed by the author, David Fletcher. This has been passed.
Copies should be available to ship from late October 2021.
