There are various ways to approach an all-encompassing subject such as armored warfare. Few authors treat the subject as an entity separate from other issues, and so comprehensive discussions of armored warfare are rare. Typically, armored warfare is most accurately and comprehensively discussed within the context of other, more specific issues such as battles, campaigns, leaders, and wars. Specific studies of a more technical nature, describing the history of individual organizations or the specifics of armored vehicle development, are also important elements of understanding this subject. An aspect of armored warfare that is important to keep in mind when researching the subject is that few if any militaries consider armored warfare a type of warfare. Rather, most modern military forces refer to the very mobile operations of armored vehicles not as “armored warfare,” but rather as “modern combined arms warfare.” This bibliography focuses exclusively on sources available in the English language, which is a significantly large volume of work and addresses most of the major armored-warfare issues.
