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 second 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:

Beute-Tank Combat Engagements
The German Plan 1919
German Anti-Tank Activities in 1918
Relics - The Fort de la Pompelle Tank Caper
Captured Whippets
Captured Tanks in Freikorps Service 1919-20
Scrapping the German Tank Corps


The book is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs
