First seen during the American Civil War and later appearing in the Franco-Prussian War and the Anglo-Boer Wars, the armored train came to prominence on the Eastern Front during World War I. It was also deployed during the Russian Civil War and the technology traveled east into the Chinese Civil War, and the subsequent war with Japan. It saw service on the Russian Front in World War II, but was increasingly sidelined because of its vulnerability to air attack. Steven J Zaloga examines the origins and development of the armored train, focusing equally on the technical detail and on the fascinating story of how armored trains were actually used in combat. This title will appeal to armor, military history and railroad enthusiasts alike.

The military was quick to see the advantages of railways in warfare, whether for the rapid deployment of men or the movement of heavy equipment like artillery. From here it was a short step to making the train a potent weapon in its own right a mobile fort or a battleship on rails. Armed and armored, they became the first practical self-propelled war machines, which by the time of the American Civil War were able to make a significant contribution to battlefield success. Thereafter, almost every belligerent nation with a railway system made some use of armored rolling stock, ranging from low-intensity colonial policing to the massive employment of armored trains during the Russian Civil War. And although they were somewhat eclipsed as frontline weapons by the development of the tank and other AFVs, armoured trains retained a role as late as the civil wars in the former republic of Yugoslavia.This truly encyclopedic book covers, country by country, the huge range of fighting equipment that rode the rails over nearly two centuries. While it outlines the place of armored trains in the evolution of warfare, it concentrates on details of their design through a vast array of photographs and the authors meticulous drawings. Published in French in 1989, this highly regarded work has been completely revised and expanded for this English edition. It remains the last word on the subject.

Excerpt: Armored Trains are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Armored Trains display greater intelligence, and certain Armored Trains directly pursue Link, rather than traveling along patrol paths. They are also capable of turning around at any time. Armored Trains can be momentarily stunned by the cannon but cannot be defeated in this fashion. Being rammed by an Armored Train instantly destroys the Spirit Train. However, for their intelligence and extra armor, they are slower than their cousins, the Dark Trains. Armored Trains first appear in the Ocean Realm, on the underwater tracks leading to the Ocean Temple. A lone Armored Train attempts to pursue Link and must be outwitted in order to reach the Ocean Temple, though if Link takes too long getting to the temple, another one will appear. After that, an Armored Train will regularly patrol the maze of tracks east of the Snow Temple in the Snow Realm. Later, after Link acquires enough Force Gems to energize the Forest Realm, one will appear next to the Dark Trains. An Armored Train changing course Armos are recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series. They typically pose as a statue or suit of armor, that attack when touched or approached. In most games, they appear to be animated statues or suits of armor that are not actually living beings. Armos appear mainly near D...
