Summary: The tank revolutionized the battlefield in World War II. In the years since, additional technological developments--including nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, computer assisted firing, and satellite navigation--have continued to transform the face of combat. The only complete history of U.S. armed forces from the advent of the tank in battle during World War I to the campaign to drive Iraq out of Kuwait in 1991, Camp Colt to Desert Storm traces the development of
doctrine for operations at the tactical and operational levels of war and translates this fighting doctrine into the development of equipment.
"The richest available store of information and interpretation on the history of American armored warfare both in theory and practice." ~Russell F. Weigley, Temple University
"An extensive yet quite readable study of the development and use of the tank by the American military. . . . Here we find not just military history but an expert study of how a weapon of war, the tank, has interacted with political and other forces and evolved into its present form. . . . All chapters combine into a cohesive and educational study." ~Library Journal
