I missed this thread earlier.
For a minute, i thought that I had read "Tanks" recently. I was confusing it with The Tank Lords
by David Drake; crossed with a small binge of other Leinster titles from the Baen free elibrary.
The Drake is terrible. A relentless barrage of carnage, without much actual story telling getting in the way.
Leinster's deliciously archaic. Amazon has a kindle version of Tanks
, cheap. I'll have to check that out one of these days. http://www.amazon.com/Tanks-ebook/dp/B003ZK5PNY
