The German 88mm gun, first conceived as Flak artillery in World War I, revealed itself to have a potent anti-tank capability during the 1940 Battle of France. Transposed to the open vistas of the North African desert in 1941, the '88' would challenge the technology and employment of the British and later American tanks that encountered it, forcing them to develop new tactics and technology to deal with this deadly threat. 'German 88mm Gun vs Allied Armour', by David Campbell & David Greentree, tells the story of that evolution and provides an in-depth treatment of this key weapon of World War II.
