Brand New Book

From the rear side cover: 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 first part in a two volume set grants for the first time a truly comprehensive look into the capture and deployment of these vehicles by offering chapters on:

A New Weapon of War - Brief History
To the Green Fields Beyond - Cambrai 1917
Lumber and Canvas - German Dummy Tanks
Battlefield Booty - German Tank Recovery
Towards Captured Tank Detachments
Bayerischer Armee-Kraftwagen-Park 20
Beute - The Mk. IV Tank in German Service
Forming Beute-Abteilungen 11 to 16
Numbers, Names, Camouflage and Markings
The French Connection
The Mark IV in Detail and Colour


The book is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs, as well as 6 pages of colour photographs.
