"Mephisto: Technology, War and Remembrance" is the latest addition to The Queensland Museum Discovery Guide series. “The bloody battles of the First World War were fought with many new and increasingly destructive weapons. One of the most significant of these was the tank. Only a single type of German tank was used in action, the A7V Sturmpanzerwagen, and it was a formidable opponent for the Allied forces. 506 Mephisto, the world’s sole surviving A7V, was captured on the battlefields of France in 1918. Under cover of darkness, with gas shells falling around them, a small group of soldiers — Queenslanders and Tasmanians of the 26th Battalion — retrieved the tank from within sight of the German lines. This book tells the story of 506 Mephisto against a backdrop of conflict, technological change and the heroism of ordinary men.”

Our iconic A7V Mephisto tank, the last of its kind in existence, is back on display in our new "Anzac Legacy Gallery".
