At the Forward Edge of Battle: A History of the Pakistan Armoured Corps 1938-2016 Volume 2 is the first illustrated history of the Pakistan Armoured Corps. Written by Maj Gen Syed Ali Hamid, it is based on his own experiences along with research and help from military sources and official documentation. Divided into nine chapters, the book provides a detailed written and illustrated description of the build-up and expansion of the Pakistan Armoured Corps. It also looks at the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 and 1971.

Verdict: With some excellent colour illustrations of armoured vehicles and a range of colour and black and white images and maps, the book gives rare insight into the Pakistan Armoured Corps.
