These are the war stories few can tell, the harrowing firsthand accounts of armored combat, from the days of the centurys first tanks to the latest encounter on the streets of Baghdad. Here are the still-vivid impressions of the brave young men who fought in the mud and trenches of no-mans land during World War I.

Here are the stories of green American tankers taking on massive and well-armored German Tigers or fighting through a screaming sea of Red Chinese soldiers in Korea. And here are the personal tales of American tankers defending Western Europe from the threat of Soviet tanks during the Cold War.

From the American boys who pitted their tanks against the Viet Cong in the jungles of Southeast Asia to the soldiers who put their lives on the line every day in Iraq, these are the heroes of our time, taking that rare moment to tell us what it is like to face the enemy in tank warfare.
