I ordered this book knowing almost nothing about it. I have the 1990 reprint of the 1987 3rd edition, and it's a physically small guidebook that covers 88 modern (in 1987) armored fighting vehicles (tanks, armored cars, and self-propelled guns).

Each vehicle gets 2 pages with:
- one black and white photo
- "Role"
- "History"
- "Employment"
- "Vehicle data"
- "Special characteristics"
- "Variants"
- "Manufacturer"
- front and side silhouette drawings

The books does what it sets out to do, providing an "observer's" guide to tanks and other AFVs. I have so many other, more detailed, books that I would not have purchased it had I known what it was. However, I'm giving it 4 stars for accomplishing what it set out to do and for the pretty good silhouettes.

This book gives great detail about the history of tanks, their uses in the past, present and in the future. It is factual as well as interesting
