Tank (2001 Ed.) - Patrick Wright - softcover - Very Good

Regular price $14.95

Conceived by the British in the First World War as a way of breaking the deadlock on the Western Front, the tank was to become the central components of the Nazi Blitzkreig through Europe in the 1930s. By 1944, however, the tables had turned on Hitler, as the Soviet T34, proving better armoured and more suited to winter warfare, ensured that the Nazis were fatally bogged down in a war on two fronts. Throughout the Cold War, the tank became a symbol of totalitarian oppression - and a focus of opposition to such regimes. Patrick Wright follows the tank's progress through the twentieth century, relating it to philosophy, art, politics and even necromancy to produce a fascinating cultural history.
