• First complete illustrated history of France's first armoured vehicles, used in World War I

The monograph tells the story of the French armour beginnings, covering the first and second French tanks ever produced, the Schneider CA and the St. Chamond, and describes their combat use as well as the development of doctrine use on the battlefields of World War I. The monograph includes many photos previously un-published, as well as unique colour profile artwork and line drawings.

About Gun Power
This series focuses on the armour, armoured vehicles and artillery. Every book contains a chapter about the design's history, plenty of drawings in modelling scales, colour plates presenting camouflaging schemes and a modeling chapter. The part covering the design's development history is illustrated by a large number of photographs. We are trying to choose interesting photos, which had been earlier unknown or rarely published. The plans show different variants of the vehicles or guns in several views, all non-standard versions and modifications and depict the details with the highest possible quality. Specifically for the modellers, the included colour profiles are printed in the same scale. A separate, comprehensive modelling chapter goes through the models and accessories sets (foto etched parts, tracks, additional sets of personnel, servicing crews etc.) available in the market.
The books of this series are fully bilingual (Polish/English).

REVIEWS

.... some of the illustrations are in two, three or even five view formats and to 1/35 scale, which makes them ideal for modellers wanting to scratch-build or check the accuracy of existing kits.

This is an excellent book on a more unusual subject, and interesting to have as a reference on these very early tanks, their employment and the lessons that were learned from them as well.
