Review quote

"Typical of the series, there is a history of the development of both tanks as well as their technical specifications and deployments. Crew training and tactics are also part of the story. The two major wars in which the tanks fought each other are covered as well as the lessons learned in each one. In all, a superlative inclusion to this series and one that I know you will find useful." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness"Tells of the M60 and T-62 weapons designed at the height of the Cold War as the superior combat tanks of their day. Their test in Middle East battles makes for a fine survey here, including technical specs and insights." --The Midwest Book Review (November 2010)show more
