Tankograd No.1004 - Beute Tanks British Tanks in German Service - Volume 2
by Rainer Strasheim
The birth of the German Panzerwaffe in World War One is for many enthusiasts mostly linked to Germany’s own development, the A7V. However, it is hard fact that most of the tanks serving on the German side in the Great War were of British origin. Captured British Mk.IV Beute-Tanks shaped the core of German ambitions towards an own armoured corps. This two-volume publication grants for the first time a truly comprehensive look into the capture and deployment of these vehicles by offering chapters on:
Volume 2 – Beute-Tank Combat Engagements – The German Plan 1919 – German Anti-Tank Activities in 1918 – Relics – The Fort de la Pompelle Tank Caper – Captured Whippets – Captured Tanks in Freikorps Service 1919-20 – Scrapping the German Tank Corps
On 192 pages in two volumes this publication is illustrated with 316 black & white photographs and 30 colour photographs. Complete English Text.
