About this title


The tank revolutionized the battlefield in World War II. In the years since, additional technological developments―including nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, computer assisted firing, and satellite navigation―have continued to transform the face of combat. The only complete history of U.S. armed forces from the advent of the tank in battle during World War I to the campaign to drive Iraq out of Kuwait in 1991, Camp Colt to Desert Storm traces the development of doctrine for operations at the tactical and operational levels of war and translates this fighting doctrine into the development of equipment.
