Breaks the war into eight periods and declares Tanker's Choice and Commander's Choice for each
Champions includes the German Panzer IV and Tiger, Soviet T-34, American Pershing, and a few surprises. It also compares tanks' firepower, armor protection, and mobility as well as dependability, affordability, tactics, training, and overall combat performance.
