A7V: The German Tank Offensive 1918

A7V: The German Tank Offensive 1918


A7V covers the only German tank attack at Villers-Bretonneux in 1918. It was a dramatic battle for it also became the first tank versus tank combat in history and WW1. Like what was to happen in WW2, the A7V tanks outpaced their infantry support early on and startled the British defenders. The A7V tank was an entirely different design having a main gun and many HMG, and faired well when the British MkV tanks appeared in the battle!  In the initial stages, gas was used again and a static battlefield suddenly became fluid. The promise of the German offensive only lacked more tanks for a breathrough. In the game, there are different scenarios showing what could occur had these extra MkV tanks that the Germans had captured, been used. The maximum effeort scenario truly is fascinating.

Game scale is 400 ydshex, with individual tanks and company sized units in a operational setting. The game comes with rules, playing aids and 280 counters.

Product Information
File Size:
0.79 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
