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:
List of Tank and AFV Authors
Robert J Icks
Michael and Gladys Green
A J Smithers
M P Robinson
Walter J Spielberger
B. T. White
Dr. F. M. von Senger und Etterlin
Lon Nordeen & David Isby
Bruce Quarrie (wehraboo)
Robert Jackson (hack)
M. H. Gillie
Patrick Stansell and Kurt Laughlin
Stephan A Hart
W. J. K. Davies
F Cappellano & PP Battistelli
Ralph Riccio and Nicola Pignato
More to come....
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.
Since I have a new interview with Ken Estes available on my site, I thought I would start a thread on the topic. This is the place to post links to interviews with tankers and/or authors.
