The Universal Tank: British Armour in the Second World War

£39.99

Product description

The Universal Tank: British Armour in the Second World War

Part 2

David Fletcher

HMSO, London, 1993.

Soft-bound; 220 x 275 mm; vi & 125 pages; illustrations within text. Printed on good quality glossy paper. No dust jacket.

The book is in good condition. The binding is sound and tight. A little page end grubbiness, and a small yellow stain affecting the inside fore edges of some pages.

“Picking up from where ‘The Great Tank Scandal’ left off, in the winter of 1942/43, ‘The Universal Tank’ carries the story of British and Commonwealth Armoured Fighting Vehicles forward to 1945. The ideal of a universal tank was first discussed when Montgomery took command of the Eighth Army. He could see that if one tank could be designed which would fulfil most roles, it would simplify matters considerably. As well as superb photographic material, the author uses original sources to illustrate the story. For this volume, access to the Regimental War Diaries of the Royal Armoured Corps for the entire period has enabled him to get even closer to the subject.”
