Review:
Dorling Kindersley's blow-up cross sections - whether of hotels or ocean liners or racing cars or vehicles of war - are miracles of draftsmanship and sources of unending fascination. Here, in historical sequence, are thirteen fascinating armored vehicles, including sea-worthy behemoths and brontosauran machines flailing chains to set off land mines. Even the non-mechanically inclined must admire, if they take time to study these singular volumes.
