I am an avid collector of books on military equipment and history. I currently have over volumes in my library of which I have over books on tanks and AFV’s. And I can say the two World of Tank books on the T34 and SU are the best, most informative and fact filled of any books I have.   A visual guide to the history of tanks, "Tank" tells the full history of tanks through stunning photography and informative text. From the early Mark Is of World War I to the T of World War II to the cutting-edge M1 Abrams of today, "Tank" showcases the most famous (or infamous) armored fighting vehicles in history/5(9).
