Tank Author list


Recommended Posts

So I thought it might be a fun project to create a list of authors who have written about tanks and armored warfare for my website.  I was going to limit the list to authors who have been published in English. I was thinking I would categorize them and provide whatever biographical info that I could.  I started going through my book collection and files collecting names.  I am not finished and I already am getting overwhelmed.  I have not included memoirs by armor officers unless they were actual tank commanders. Here is what I have so far, not sorted or organized yet:

      Hi People,
      Richard Ogorkiewicz's new and rather excellent book, 100 years: evolution of the tank, is currently going dirt cheap (99p) on UK Amazon as a Kindle book. 
      Sorry, I don't know the situation in North America or Europe, you will need to check your local Amazon.
