              German Anti-Tank Warfare
                

              German Anti-Tank Warfare (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This short study follows German Anti-Tank Warfare from 1916 to 1945. During its early days in the Great War German Anti-Tank Warfare quickly achieved a surprising degree of sophistication but throughout most of the inter-war period it was largely ignored. As the Second World War ...approached it was regarded as a matter for specialist teams but as it progressed though the desert campaigns it became a matter for AT guns, with mines increasingly important. In its final stage in Europe every soldier was expected to play his part, with mines and Panzerfausts, in the fight against tanks. The book looks at the equipment available, particularly self-propelled guns, and at trends in permanent fortification. In particular it considers the Mareth Line and the Siegfried Line and the British and American assaults of these Lines. The book is not long, being 55,000 words. As with any subject as vast as the subject of this study, it is impossible to guarantee a proper balance and proportion in the way it is described, but an attempt has been made and it is hoped that the reader will find this study informative and useful. Although this book has been written to stand alone, it also forms a companion piece to the author's 'British Anti-Tank Warfare' and a kind of counterpoise to some of his other books about tanks.

              British Anti-Tank Warfare

              This book is an attempt to describe the British army's approach to Anti-Tank Warfare from its inception during the Great War until 1945. During the Great War the army found little reason to study anti-tank warfare and after the war what little anti-tank awareness there was slowly... faded away. This was inevitable because of the 'ten year rule' which proclaimed that there would be no major war in that period, and it was only in the second half of the thirties that the British army started to take the subject seriously. In 1939 the British anti-tank armament and tactics were inadequate, this became a major worry after Dunkirk and this book gives particular emphasis to the anti-tank defences built in England against the expected German invasion. Under the pressure of necessity tactics and equipment improved reaching a high point of effectiveness at Medenine in 1943. After that, although equipment improved slightly, the threat was never again so great and the British army could confidently handle whatever Axis armour came its way. There must be some doubt if anti-tank warfare should be regarded as a subject in its own right, mostly because it is purely a reaction to the invention and progress of the tank. The writer of this book believes it should be, and this book should support this view.

              Cruiser Tank Warfare
                

              Cruiser Tank Warfare (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Cruiser Tank Warfare is a term used to describe the British concept of armoured warfare based on fast, thinly armoured tanks. The book traces the history of this concept from the publication of 'Mechanised and Armoured Formations' in 1929 up to the end of the war. It does this by... following the British understanding of the subject in manuals, 'Modern Formations' being extensively quoted, by considering the development of Cruiser tank design, and by looking at the major actions that Cruisers were involved in. The conclusion drawn is that the Cruiser Tank Warfare concept was fundamentally flawed. It is important to note that the book restricts itself to a detailed investigation of the British experience of tank warfare, only occasionally referring to foreign armies and then purely for comparison. It is confidently planned to publish a companion volume titled 'Infantry Tank Warfare'.
