Which tank is the most effective? Which can fire the furthest? Which can move most quickly? Compared & Contrasted: Tanks examines armoured fighting vehicles from each period from their introduction during World War I to the present day.

Each spread features a key category (such as operational range, maximum speed, armour protection, engine power and gun calibre) with an easy to follow diagram or chart comparing the strengths of five vehicles.

The book is a wealth of technical data presented in an easily understood format.

Packed with specially created charts, graphs, and artworks and accompanied by an accessible explanation of the key characteristics of each vehicle, Compared & Contrasted: Tanks is a fantastic book for any general reader or military enthusiast.
