David Fletcher, of Britain's Tank Museum, has written numerous books covering British tank development from the First World War through World War Two, rivaling Richard Hunnicutt's chronicle of American armor. However, Mr. Fletcher's series of books for the Tank Museum were largely text, with very few illustrative photos. With this new title, he makes up lost ground, with a very nice selection of large format photos of the desert war against Rommel. Most of the photos are fresh subjects. The reproduction is quite good, and the paper is glossy (though some snapshots of obscure subjects look like, well, snapshots). We can only hope he follows up with additional titles on the campaigns of 1939-40, and 1944-45.
