At the Forward Edge of Battle – A History of the Pakistan Armored Corps 1938-2016, Volume 2

At the Forward Edge of Battle

At the Forward Edge of Battle is the first-ever illustrated history of the Pakistan Armored Corps. The Pakistan Armored Corps is based on a unique blend of values and traditions inherited from its predecessors, and those of the post-Independence national army. The origins of this force can be traced back to the time when the cavalry units of the British India Army were mechanized, in the late 1930s. They were worked up and then deployed extensively during the Second World War, and further molded during the post-independence period and two wars with India between 1948-1971.

By the 1990s, the Pakistan Armored Corps had evolved into a modern fighting force in thought, organization and equipment. Based on decades of the author's first-hand experiences, as well as extensive research with the help of authentic sources and official documentation, this book provides a detailed and richly illustrated description of the build-up and expansion of the Pakistan Armored Corps, its culture, organization, doctrine, equipment, bases, a myriad of events and personalities, and combat operations that shaped it over the last 95 years. At the Forward Edge of Battle, Volume 2 is illustrated with over 100 rare and authentic photographs, 15 color profiles, and a similar number of maps.
