Here, in one fascinating volume, are the greatest tank battles that changed the course of history. Tom Donnelly and Sean Naylor bring these intense battles to vivid life, revealing the tactics and operations with rare analytical insight. Illustrated with maps and photographs, Clash of Chariots is a definitive reference source on tank warfare--the machinery and men that redefined the strategies of war in the twentieth century. . . . In World War II, the epic-scale arenas of battle saw the rise and dominance of tanks--the frightening efficiency of the German blitzkrieg, the savagery of the four-year campaign between the Germans and the Soviets, and the brilliance of the Allied counteroffensives that won the war. In Israel, tank units overcame disastrous odds to defend their homeland in two brutal desert wars. And, most recently, in the Persian Gulf American-led coalition forces vanquished Iraqi tanks in less than 100 furious hours of ground combat.

Donnelly and Naylor bring us the entire story of these epic struggles, from individual tankers to commanding officers. They analyze a variety of tactics and operations--what worked and what didn't--and look ahead to the future of tank warfare. Clash of Chariots is a monument to the most important battles of this century--and a resource that no military buff should be without.
