Book Summary:

Panzer warfare is synonymous with the Wehrmacht of World War II. This book examines the story of the Panzer's more mysterious ancestors, the little-known panzers of the Great War. Germany was very slow to develop armored vehicles compared to Britain and France. Efforts to catch-up proved difficult, and only a few dozen German A7V tanks were completed in time to take part in the final campaigns of 1918. As a result, the majority of German panzer units actually used captured British tanks, the Beutepanzer. This book will trace the development of German panzers of the World War One, including the A7V and its intended but unfinished stablemates.

Excerpt: This article deals with the history of tanks of the German Army from World War I, the Interwar, and the Panzers of German Wehrmacht during the Second World War, and into the Cold War and current tanks. A German Tiger I tank. The development of tanks in World War I began as a solution to the stalemate which trench warfare had brought to the western front. While the British took the lead in tank development, the French were not far behind and fielded their first tanks in 1917. The Germans, on the other hand, were slower to develop tanks, concentrating on anti-tank weapons. The German response to the initial successes of the British tanks forces on the Western Front in 1916 was the A7V tank and like several other tanks of the period, it was based on the American Holt Tractor, which provided the tracks. Despite suffering from many obvious flaws, the German general staff was aware that they did not have time to produce an improved design, and at the end of 1917 ordered 100 but only one third were ever produced, so did not have a great effect before the war ended. German demonstration against the Treaty of Versailles in front of the Reichstag buildingA political event that has to taken into account in the German history is when on 30 January 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany. Although he initially headed a coalition government, he quickly eliminated his government partners and more importantly the restrictions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles (1919), between Germany and the Allied Powers. The Nazi Party claimed that through the Treaty, the Weimar Republic's liberal democracy, the traitorous "November criminals" had surrendered Germany's national pride, and explaining the German military failure in World War I....

Book Summary:

Amongst the first ever mass-produced tanks in history, the British Mk IV has been classified as one of the most successful heavy tanks to have fought in World War I. Mechanically similar to its predecessors, the Mark IV embodied various improvements, suggested by experience with earlier variants, including better armour, improved weapons and easier transportation. It proved its worth at the landmark battle of Cambrai in November 1917, when 460 Mark IVs were deployed for the first time against the enemy with great effect. Arguably changing the nature of war on the Western Front, the Mark IV was one of the first vehicles in the world to partake in a tank duel when, in 1918, it met the German A7V in combat. Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished photographs and new information on its operational abilities, this fascinating exploration of the British Mk IV includes detailed descriptions of the tank and its variants, such as the mine-clearing tank, the Tadpole tail device, and the tank created for towing airships, to complete the picture of this crucial vehicle and its deployment on the Western Front.
