Synopsis

Synopsis

Step onto the battlefield and immerse yourself in the experience of real historic combat. Designed for the battlefields of Europe at the height of the Cold War, the M60 and T-62 were the premier combat tanks of their day. However, it was in the deserts of the Middle East that they finally met in battle. This new Duel title examines the design and development of these main battle tanks, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, and describing and analyzing their performance on the battlefield during the Yom Kippur War, the Iran-Iraq War, and the first Gulf War. Included are color photographs, cutaway artwork, and original illustrations by Richard Chasemore. It's a must-read for fans of the evolution of armored warfare.
Praise

Praise

"Typical of the series, there is a history of the development of both tanks as well as their technical specifications and  deployments. Crew training and tactics are also part of the story. The two major wars in which the tanks fought each other are covered as well as the lessons learned in each one. In all, a superlative inclusion to this series and one that I know you will find useful." -Scott van Aken, Modeling Madness

"Tells of the M60 and T-62 weapons designed at the height of the Cold War as the superior combat tanks of their day. Their test in Middle East battles makes for a fine survey here, including technical specs and insights." - The Midwest Book Review (November 2010)
