Having been on this Forum over a year now I am starting to keenly feel my lack of knowledge regarding most things "Tanky". I've read Len Deighton's "Blitzkreig" and enjoyed it, but I was wondering what other good general reference books there are out there? The criteria for me would be that I would like any recommendations to cover Tanks and Armoured warfare as a whole rather than specific tanks, although books covering camapigns or particular battles would also be of interest. Not too expensive, I don't want to find myself paying £100's of pounds for the best book going, £10 for a good book would be better. I'd also like it to be reasonably accessable to the layman, I have a reasonable grasp of what makes up a tank but until recently didn't know what a Glacis Plate or Mantel was for example (...and would probably still get it wrong if someone asked for a definition!), so nothing too technical. Must be in English, like most English people my grasp of foreign languages extends no further than talking loudly in English and pointing! :lol: However good they are, foreign books would be no good to me. Your recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks, Simon.
