Dr. Thomas Bruce completed his PhD in Mechanical and Material Engineering with a focus on continuous fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite materials at the University of Western Ontario. Dr. Bruce continues to work closely with the staff of Western University on numerous composite material related testing projects.

As well Dr. Bruce has worked for 30 years at General Dynamics Land Systems–Canada, where he is engaged in the design and testing of vehicle level protection systems for armoured vehicles which make extensive use of composite materials. His career ha involved the researching, designing, and live-fire testing of Armored Fighting Vehicle armor protection systems, including protection against ballistic, shaped-charge warhead, buried and elevated blast, explosively formed penetrators (EFP’s), fragmentation warheads (artillery shells) and improvised explosive devices (IED’s).

In addition Dr. Bruce operates an independent engineering consulting company, Fort-Bruce Testing Inc, which offers extensive services with regards to the design and testing of materials and components, with a particular focus on composite materials for the marine industry. Dr. Bruce can be contacted for more information regarding the services offered by Fort-Bruce Testing Inc by visiting the company website at, and selecting the ‘Contact Us’ tab.

Dr. Bruce writes his books for the educated reader who seeks a concise review of the significant aspects of the subject matter discussed. Rather than attempting to produce a voluminous academic study, the intent of each book is to offer the reader an opportunity to both enjoy and understand the fundamental concepts of the subject without being inundated by excessive content. Additionally, each book attempts to cover the subject matter from a novel perspective, reviewing key aspects that are not generally considered in other sources.

3.0 out of 5 stars Large letters make many pages
Reviewed in Germany on 21 May 2019
The book contains a lot of useful information, especially about newer tanks, but the format is a disaster. The letters are huge, as if they had been written for children. In addition, page layout and image placement are a disaster. If the font size were 4 units smaller and the image formatting better you could easily save 200 pages. So the book has been inflated to over 500 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly detailed book!
Reviewed in the United States on 10 December 2018
I've had the privilege of working with Dr. Bruce on several projects over the years and was excited to get my hands on this, his latest book. To say that he "knows his stuff" would be a dramatic understatement. Not only is he is a wealth of knowledge, but he's able to clearly explain complex topics in simple, interesting terms, ensuring you understand not just the "why", but the "how" as well.

His unique professional experience makes this (and his other works) a distinctly authoritative reference for anyone interested in modern fighting vehicles or military history. Definitely worth checking out! We bought several copies for our engineering staff to study and they all enjoyed it. Highly recommended read!
