What are some good books for a relatively normal person to comprehend concerning what mech warfare will look like in the next five years?

I understand that technology has important role to play in it, but who can present it in a way I can understand.

Also, different approach at same topic, who has written good accounts of tank warfare from Desert Storm to now?

Much thanks for suggestions!

By mech you mean mechanised? Or do you mean Voltron?

Atkinson's "Crusade" is a good lay person account of Desert Storm.

You could try the professional US Army magazine "Armor".

Thank you for suggestion. Atkinson looks good:
any thoughts on his "In the Company of Soldiers"?
I assume the 101st had armor support somewhere along the way?

No idea I'm afraid, haven't read that one.
The Fort Lavenworth papers contain some solid monographs on later C20th armor, but on a mobile so no links. Most of the material I've discovered regarding contempoary/present day involves drones more than anything else.
