Armored Trains
Zaloga, Stephen J.
ISBN: 9781846032424
Osprey Pub Co  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG140. First seen during the American Civil War and later appearing in the Franco-Prussian War and the Boer Wars, the military use of the armoured train only came to the fore during World War I, reigning supreme on the Eastern Front. Deployed widely during Russian Civil War the technology spilt over into the Chinese Civil War, and the subsequent war with Japan, the armoured train has played a major role in conflicts during the 20th century, being used during World War II and surviving to the present day -although more as a technological curiosity than a significant weapon. Steven J Zaloga examines the origins and technical development of armoured trains. But rather than provide an encyclopaedic treatment of the many trains, it instead focuses on the more important and fascinating issue of how armoured trains were actually used in combat.  As New

British Mark I Tank 1916
Fletcher, David
ISBN: 1841766895
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2004 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG100. In 1915 a machine christened Little Willie changed the way that wars were fought. Little Willie was a fully tracked armoured vehicle that could break a trench system. Its development was completed in December 1915, but by then it had already been superseded by an improved design, Mother. This was the first rhomboid tank, and the prototype for the Mark 1 which would influence a whole generation of tank building. This book details the development of the Mark I, and its surprise arrival in France in the middle of 1916 during the closing weeks of the battles of the Somme.   As New

German Panzers 1914-18
Zaloga, Steven
ISBN: 1841769452
Osprey Pub Co Oxford, United Kingdom 2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG127. Panzer warfare is synonymous with the Wehrmacht of World War II. This book examines the story of the Panzer’s more mysterious ancestors, the little-known panzers of the Great War. Germany was very slow to develop armored vehicles compared to Britain and France. Efforts to catch-up proved difficult, and only a few dozen German A7V tanks were completed in time to take part in the final campaigns of 1918. As a result, the majority of German panzer units actually used captured British tanks, the Beutepanzer. This book will trace the development of German panzers of the World War One, including the A7V and its intended but unfinished stablemates. Contents: Introduction; Early Roots; The Early Tank Program; The Cambrai Shock; A7V Variants; Panzers in Training; Into Combat; Rebuilding the Tank Units; German Armored Cars in Combat; Final Tank Battles; Plan 1919; Further Reading; Color Plate Commentary; Index.  As New

Mark V Tank
Fletcher, David
ISBN: 9781849083515
Osprey Pub Co  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG178. Although, to the casual eye, all British tanks of World War I look much the same, the Mark V is quite outstanding and has a strong claim to be the tank that won the Great War. In this title, renowned tank expert David Fletcher examines the technological developments that made this tank excel where others had failed, and the reasons why it gave the British the upper hand over the Germans on the battlefield and why it was adopted by the US Tank Corps. Accompanied by detailed artwork showing the design changes that allowed the Mark V to breach the widest German trenches, this title is an excellent resource for the study of the armour of World War I.  As New

Medium Mark A Whippet
Fletcher, David
ISBN: 9781782003984
Osprey Pub Co  2014 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG207. This title looks at the Medium Mark A Whippet, one of the most successful British tanks of World War I and, when placed alongside existing titles covering the Mark I, Mark IV and Mark V, completes the New Vanguard series' coverage of the major British tanks of the war. The evolution of the Whippet is examined in detail, from design and development to mechanical details and crew duties, and information on the operational use of the vehicle is drawn from war diaries and battalion records. The Whippet was involved in several well-known incidents that will be presented in this volume, including the clash at Cachy on April 24, 1918, the actions of the 6th Battalion tank known as "Musical Box" on August 8, 1918, and Sewell's Victoria Cross-winning exploits with the 3rd Battalion on August 29, 1918. Mention will also be made of the Whippet's involvement with the Tank Corps' expedition to Russia. In addition to this examination of the Mark A Whippet is a study of the other Medium tanks up to the end of the war: the Medium B, Medium C, Medium D and the experimental American Studebaker tank.  As New

Mephisto: Technology War and Remembrance
Czechura, Gregory; Hopkins-Weise, Jeff
ISBN: 9780648094425
Queensland Museum  2018 
 Soft Cover New book, 358 pages, hundreds of period photos and illustrations, plus 74 modern colour photos of Mephisto exterior and interior. The bloody battles of the First World War were fought with many new and increasingly destructive weapons. One of the most significant of these was the tank. Only a single type of German tank was used in action, the A7V Sturmpanzerwagen, and it was a formidable opponent for the Allied forces. 506 Mephisto, the world’s sole surviving A7V, was captured on the battlefields of France in 1918. Under cover of darkness, with gas shells falling around them, a small group of soldiers - Queenslanders and Tasmanians of the 26th Battalion - retrieved the tank from within sight of the German lines. This book tells the story of 506 Mephisto against a backdrop of conflict, technological change and the heroism of ordinary men. Contents: - The First World War; The Western Front; Killer Inventions; A New War Machine; The German A7V; Tanks at War; First Blood; Villers-Bretonneux; Mephisto Captured; Aftermath and Legacy; Mephisto Revealed.  As New

Only a single type of German tank was used in action, the A7V Sturmpanzerwagen, and it was a formidable opponent for the Allied forces. 506 Mephisto, the world’s sole surviving A7V, was captured on the battlefields of France in 1918. Under cover of darkness, with gas shells falling around them, a small group of soldiers - Queenslanders and Tasmanians of the 26th Battalion - retrieved the tank from within sight of the German lines. This book tells the story of 506 Mephisto against a backdrop of conflict, technological change and the heroism of ordinary men. Contents: - The First World War; The Western Front; Killer Inventions; A New War Machine; The German A7V; Tanks at War; First Blood; Villers-Bretonneux; Mephisto Captured; Aftermath and Legacy; Mephisto Revealed.  As New
