John Taylor's DEBORAH AND THE WAR OF THE TANKS - 'A great achievement' - Dan Snow

September 5, 2016

 

Published 5 September 2016, by Pen and Sword Books.  

Deborah, a British First World War tank played a leading role in the first successful massed tank attack at Cambrai.  Eighty years later, in a remarkable feat of archaeology, the tank’s buried remains were rediscovered and excavated, and are now preserved as a memorial to the battle and to the men who fought in it. John Taylor’s book tells the tale of the tank and her crew and tracks down their descendants to uncover a human story every bit as compelling as the military one.
