Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Recommended: For Connoisseurs of Tank Warfare: The British Mark I Vs. a 21st Century Tank

A couple of caveats for readers—

1.  This seven-page article which is a PDF format discussed the nitty-gritty details of tank design and operation, including the propulsion system, armor, weaponry, and operational issues, then and now.

2.  The 21st-century tank is the recently developed Turkish Altay Main Battle Tank produced by the Turkish controlled BMC company with technical input by Hyundai of South Korea.

Nevertheless, if you love tanks, this article will give you a great ride in explaining how tanks and tank warfare have evolved over the past century and how many things are still the same.

  1. This is too hard to print and still read it conveniently. The type is too small to really read and the format gets all screwed up when I try to enlarge it. Tom Morgan
