BRITISH TANKS IN GERMAN SERVICE WWI VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2
by Rainer Strasheim, oversize paperbacks, new copies. Tankograd WWI series #1003 and 1004

The birth of the German Panzerwaffe in World War One is for many enthusiasts mostly linked to Germany's own development, the A7V. However, it is hard fact that most of the tanks serving on the German side in the Great War were of British origin. Captured British Mk.IV Beute-Tanks shaped the core of German ambitions towards an own armoured corps. This two-volume publication grants for the first time a truly comprehensive look into the capture and deployment of these vehicles by offering chapters on:

Vol. 1
- A New Weapon of War - Brief History
- To the Green Fields Beyond - Cambrai 1917
- Lumber and Canvas - German Dummy Tanks
- Battlefield Booty - German Tank Recovery
- Towards Captured Tank Detachments
- Bayerischer Armee-Kraftwagen-Park 20
- Beute - The Mk. IV Tank in German Service
- Forming Beute-Abteilungen 11 to 16
- Numbers, Names, Camouflage and Markings
- The French Connection
- The Mark IV in Detail and Colour

Vol. 2
- Beute-Tank Combat Engagements
- The German Plan 1919
- German Anti-Tank Activities in 1918
- Relics - The Fort de la Pompelle
Tank Caper
- Captured Whippets
- Captured Tanks in Freikorps
Service 1919-20
- Scrapping the German Tank Corps

On 192 pages in two volumes this publication is illustrated with 316 black&white photographs and 30 colour photographs. Complete English Text

Be assured, though I may not always have the lowest price, you will not get any cheap bookclub editions from me on ebay. I've been selling books for many many years and I can spot cheap bookclubs a mile away.  Hand me a book and I'll tell you straight off if it's a bookclub edition. Sometimes it can be hard for most booksellers to know if it's a bookclub, like university press books. They don't normally put the price on the jacket for the publisher's edition, but most of them do use full or partial cloth binding, whereas the bookclub edition will be simply cheap board covers. Though let's face it, most of the publisher's editions these days aren't all that great in quality either, the bookclubs are even worse! 

Please look at my ebay store where many similar titles are available.
