About this product
- DescriptionThe scale of the French tanks' failure in their first engagement in 1917, lead to rumours that the Artillerie Speciale was in danger of being disbanded, yet, by the end of the war it was the world's largest and most technologically advanced tank force. This work examines this important facet of the French army's performance in the First World War.
- Author BiographyDr Tim Gale undertook his doctoral research on the French tank service (the Artillerie Speciale) at the Department of War Studies, King's College, under the supervision of Professor William Philpott. His interests continue to be the Artillerie Speciale and other aspects of French Army in the Great War. His current research is on the wartime career of one of France's most controversial generals, Charles Mangin. He is a member of the First World War Tactics and Operations Group (KCL) and is the Honorary Treasurer of the British Commission for Military History. Forthcoming work includes chapters on the development of French tank doctrine in the Great War, General Charles Mangin, General Estienne of the Artillerie Speciale, as well as one about the post-war life of the Renault light tank.
