  1. Hi, Just a head's up of a new book just published by the Tank Museum at Bovington. It is Richard Ogorkiewicz's autobiography which he had just completed before his death and which was brought to publication thorough the determination of David Willey, Curator of the museum. I received the book out of the blue as a gift, through I think, the good offices of Richard's wife. The book is entitled "Observer of Cold War tank development", it is 78 pages long and richly illustrated and is full of interesting facts and personal anecdotes. Once available for general sale, it looks likes it will be a purchase well made. Cheers Marsh
  2. SH_MM once uploaed this piece of image on this thread and I want to know where this is from. Is there anyone who can tell me the name of the book?
  3. This is a thread about dead trees and dead tree substitutes. For example, I just scored this sexy number for only $12: It's a pretty huge book (think coffee table sized) with amazing maps: A brief inspection reveals some idiocy, but it doesn't detract much from the pretty pictures Post your bookshelves itt
  4. 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.

  5. 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. cheers Marsh
  6. About to read a (stolen) copy of Let the games begin!
  7. 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 Steven Zaloga Richard Ogorkiewicz David Fletcher Robert J Icks Kenneth Estes Harry Yeide George Forty Simon Dunstan Kenneth Macksey Pat Ware Thomas Jentz Hillary Doyle Richard Hunnicutt Chris Ellis Peter Chamberlain Michael and Gladys Green Peter Beale A J Smithers Robert Griffin M P Robinson James Loop Walter J Spielberger Uwe Feist Norm Harms Charles Kliment Janusz Magnuski Bruce Culver Peter Brown B.
