Description

In this highly acclaimed cultural history of the wartime juggernaut that changed ground warfare forever, Patrick Wright takes us through war zones and battlefields-from the tank's infancy in the First World War and the Russian Revolution through World War II, the Six Day War, and the Gulf War. More than a conventional work of military history, Tank investigates the enduring symbolism of this icon of brutality and its exploitation as a social and political tool. Wright explores the transformation of ground combat and the drastic alteration of our relationship with the military machine as it is redesigned for the era of digitized warfare.
