Haynes Workshop Manuals on Great War Tanks are there 2 books?
Permalink   


From: 
  
I’d bought the Haynes Great War Workshop manual on the Mark IV tank a while back and saw that they also have a title Great War Workshop manual ‘all types 1915-1945’. Not sure why the second title goes beyond 1918. I’d order the ‘all types’ book and today I received the Mark IV book. I checked the ISBN number and the book covering ‘all types’ is the same number as the Mark IV book.  

The ‘all types’ has a Mark V as the cover illustration and the Mark IV book So one would expect has a Mark IV.  

Are there two books - the common ISBN is confusing.

Maybe running until '45, to cover the two wrecks in the Tiergarten?

After buying two books with the Mark V on the cover (and returning both) I’m convinced that Haynes only printed the Mark IV version but released two images for the cover.

Hello,

I've seen Haynes release previous manuals with two different covers.  I think there may be an American and an EU version. 

The "1945" date may be in reference to the Mark IV tank that was reactivated in England during WWII and served as base defense at Whale Island.

MarkV

I guess I’m not surprised that cover designers can’t tell a Mark IV from a Mark V.  It’s just misleading to the ‘serious’ WWI armor enthusiast thinking the volume covered later tanks.  Which still leaves room for a detailed volume in the Mark I thru Mark V*.
