New book, 358 pages, hundreds of period photos and illustrations, plus 74 modern colour photos of Mephisto exterior and interior. The bloody battles of the First World War were fought with many new and increasingly destructive weapons. One of the most significant of these was the tank. Only a single type of German tank was used in action, the A7V Sturmpanzerwagen, and it was a formidable opponent for the Allied forces. 506 Mephisto, the world’s sole surviving A7V, was captured on the battlefields of France in 1918. Under cover of darkness, with gas shells falling around them, a small group of soldiers - Queenslanders and Tasmanians of the 26th Battalion - retrieved the tank from within sight of the German lines. This book tells the story of 506 Mephisto against a backdrop of conflict, technological change and the heroism of ordinary men. Contents: - The First World War; The Western Front; Killer Inventions; A New War Machine; The German A7V; Tanks at War; First Blood; Villers-Bretonneux; Mephisto Captured; Aftermath and Legacy; Mephisto Revealed.
