BRITISH BATTLE TANKS: BRITISH-MADE TANKS OF WORLD WAR II.

FLETCHER (D.)

L005

£25.00

280pp., illus. 2017. Covers the development and use of the Matilda, Crusader, and Valentine tanks that pushed back the Axis in North Africa, the much-improved Churchill that fought with distinction from North Africa to Normandy, and the excellent Cromwell tank of 1944-45. It also looks at Britain’s super-heavy tank projects, the TOG1 and TOG2, and the Tortoise heavy assault tank, designed to smash through the toughest of battlefield conditions, but never put into production.
