As well as describing the improvized weapons and methods used to knock out tanks in World Wars I and II, this work includes discussion of today's sophisticated hand-held anti-tank weapons, anti-tank guns, mobile tank destroyers and anti-armour ordnance used by the tanks themselves.
Anti-tank weapons today are sophisticated items of hardware, but in World Wars I and II, many improvized weapons were used to knock out tanks. This work contains accounts of infantrymen who disabled tanks by pouring petrol over the engine casings and igniting it; pushing graneades down the barrels of tanks; and dropping bombs through open turrets to kill crews. As well as descriptions of hand-held anti-tank weapons, included in the book are anti-tank guns, mobile tank destroyers and anti-armour ordnance used by the tanks themselves. There are also chapters on the aircraft that have been developed and modified since World WQar II to kill tanks, such as the A-10 Thunderbolt and the Russian SU-25 Frogfoot.
