New book, 64 pages, ELI124. The battlefield interaction between infantry and tanks was central to combat on most fronts in World War II. The first ‘Blitzkrieg’ campaigns saw the tank achieve a new dominance. New infantry tactics and weapons some of them desperately dangerous had to be adopted, while the armies raced to develop more powerful anti-tank guns and new light weapons. By 1945, a new generation of revolutionary shoulder-fired AT weapons was in widespread use. This book explains in detail the shifting patterns of anti-tank combat, illustrated with photographs, diagrams and colour plates showing how weapons were actually employed on the battlefield.
