This is a decent account covering the formation, development and introduction of the Tank Corp on the Western Front during WW1. It covers all aspects of the first 'tank' and the men who crewed and fought with this weapon during WW1. The book looks at the battles that the Tank took part in and the politics of its use between commanders, politicians and the soldiers. Overall its a decent introduction to early tank warfare and one of few written on the subject ("Tanks & Trenches" and "The Devil's Chariots").
