Each entry is covered over four pages including a brief description of the tank's development and history, color artworks showing various view and models, a photograph and a selective specifications table.  Packed with 300 full-color artworks and photographs and written for the non-expert, Top 50 Tanks is a fun and popular guide to the greatest tanks to see combat from 1917 to the present.
