Icks was a pioneer in the writing and researching of tanks and armored warfare, writing numerous books on the topic starting in the 1920's up through to the 1970's. In the course of his research on tanks, Icks carried on a correspondence with British journalist, historian and military theorist Basil Liddell Hart. Widely credited as one of the prophets of modern mechanized warfare, Liddell Hart was one of the most prolific writers on military matters in the 20th century. A major portion of the book is devoted to World War II when the tank was used effectively in North Africa, Europe, Russia and the Pacific, and the record of that conflict is highlighted by the accounts of armored units under the command of such men as Patton and Rommel who raised tank warfare to unprecedented levels of sophistication.
