In this book by David Higgins, we get a good look at the development of these vehicles on both sides of the conflict, It is interesting that the brass of both nations were not sure these were a good idea. We are then given an opportunity to see what these tanks were like from a technical stand point and what they were like to operate. We then go into combat with them where these tank's positive and negative traits are discovered. It makes for a fascinating look at these weapon's earliest days and see from whence the modern Main Battle Tank developed. It is another superb title in Osprey's Duel series and a book I know you will enjoy reading. Highly recommended.

...offers military collections a fine account of the first deployment of the Germans' own design, and is a fine recommendation for any military history holding interested in the machines of conflict. The clash at Villers-Bretonneaux showcased two competing designs, the Mark IV and the A7V, and details how they were deployed in battle. The result is a fine recommendation for military libraries strong in not only history, but equipment analysis.
