Publisher's Summary

As Anthony Tucker-Jones shows in this wide-ranging history, for most of the Cold War the tank retained its preeminence on the battlefield. The Arab-Israeli wars witnessed some of the biggest tank battles of all time, and tanks played key roles in conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan as well as in the Iran-Iraq War and the wars fought between India and Pakistan. But then in the mid-1960s anti-tank weapons became ever deadlier, and the Mechanized Infantry Fighting Vehicle (MIFV), which was designed to support infantry and fight tanks, emerged and the heyday of the tank was over.

Chapters cover each major phase in the evolution of the tank and of tank warfare during the period, from the battles fought in the late 1940s and 1950s with World War II armored vehicles like the T-34 and the Sherman, through to the designs common in the 1960s and 1970s like the T-55, Centurion, Challenger, and M60 Patton, to the confrontation between the M1 Abrams and the T-72 during the Gulf War in 1991.

A good overview of the subject

Very good.
A good overview and less dry than most other books in the genre.
