Arranged as a photographic album, this book is a fascinating pictorial history of Czechoslovak tanks between 1930 and 1945, a period that covered the Second World War. Aside from 4 or so pages of text at the start of the book (with all text in both English and Czech), every page of the book is taken up with a total of over 400 black and white photographs showing vehicles, and each photograph has a very short caption detailing what is shown (this caption is in both Czech and English).
From the publishers description: This book explores the progress and construction of each type of tank made in Czechoslovakia between the years 1930-1945. There are around 420 period photographs, covering prototypes, Tankettes (small tracked AFV's), Light Tanks and Medium Tanks, and all of which were manufactured by the two main manufacturers of the period - ČKD and Škoda. There are some never before published photographs, including some of tanks built for service in the German Army, including the Light Tank 35 Pz.Kpfw. 35(t)
