I can tell you right now though that it's not a Swedish book by a Swedish author. It's a Swedish translation of a presumably British book, The Tanks, by a man named Philip Gibbs (most likely this guy). If I Google "Philip Gibbs the tanks" all that comes up is this Swedish translation, which is weird, but presumably the English original should exist somewhere.

 

I could also go look at it in the national archives library (they do have a copy) if you want, but I don't have time to give you a full translation.

Thanks for the info.  It's odd that an English language version does not show up anywhere.  Is it a fiction or non-fiction book?

I don't know but since the guy was a war correspondent and the national archives library has a copy I'd figure it's nonfiction. I'll try to remember to check it out on monday.
