Cool Book

While browsing the local Half-Priced Books today, I almost missed this lovely gem of a book. By no means an exhaustive look at military vehicles, "Tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles - Visual Encyclopedia" is a nice, handy quick reference book for everything from FT-17s to T-90s and in between. It covers more than just tanks and APCs as well and provides useful quick info on numerous trucks, jeeps, anti-aircraft systems, etc.. All the vehicles within are organized into topics such as "Pre-War Tanks" or "Late Cold War" making it quite useful when trying to track down a vehicle from a particular point in history.

Not a bad grab for under $20 and to think I almost missed it.

Take care,

-Eli

There is also one on aircraft and ships. The ship one is the weakest of the three.

Does the aircraft one cover helicopters?

Eli-

To be honest, I don't remember.
