This is the second of a two volume work. This volume focuses on the operational employment of French tanks in World War I, picking up with the operations of July 1918 and the “turning point” of the war. Every (and I mean every) action where French tanks were engaged is discussed, with supporting maps, identification of the armor units involved, most of the associated infantry units involved with those attacks are identified, and the objectives involved are identified. This last volume also provides a discussion of German attitudes towards the tank attacks made against them and the counter measures they took.
