Mark IV vs A7V: Villers-Bretonneux 1918 - David Higgins Though I have long been an avid history buff, I do not have a great comprehensive knowledge of nor interest in tank warfare. Notwithstanding that, I was curious to see what Osprey had to say about the British Mark IV and German A7V tank, both of which engaged each other in the first tank battle at Villers-Bretonneux in April 1918. This book goes into some detail in describing the characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses of both tanks, which was useful in helping me to understand and appreciate the roles they served in combat.
