2 books with WW I armored cars in them
Permalink   


Here are two books that have some info on WW I armored cars:

 

archive.org has "Prisoners of the Red Desert" on the crew of HMS Tara whose ship was sunk a U-boat and they were held prisoners by the Sessuni until they were rescued by a British armored car unit.

 

"A Sentimetal Journey Memoirs 1917-1922 Victor Shklovsky the memoirs of a writer who served in a Russian Armored car unit during this period. I haven't read the book but on the amazon.com look inside it mentions a Lanchester cannon car.
