TANK MEN is the gripping first-hand story of the men and women who fought in tanks by a top military historian.
The First World War saw the birth of an extraordinary fighting machine that has fascinated three generations: the tank.
In Tank Men, ex-soldier and military historian Robert Kershaw brings to life the grime, the grease and the fury of a tank battle through the voices of ordinary men and women who lived and fought in those fearsome machines.
Drawing on vivid, newly researched personal testimony from the crucial battles of the First and Second World Wars, this is military history at its very best.
A highly original and valuable piece of military history. It ought to transform our idea of the Second World War, it has mine...a marvellous and origninal book based on the most detailed research. - Sir John Keegan
I thought TANK MEN was a triumph ... it is a really fine piece of work - Richard Holmes
Some of the eye witness accounts Kershaw has collected for this comprehensive review of tank warfare have the power to chill the reader to the bone. This is warfare at the sharp end. - Nottingham Evenong Post
Very well written, with excellent photographs, it's an indispensable addition to the body of knowledge about modern warfare. - South Wales Argus
