4.0 out of 5 stars Montys men, 22 Dec. 2013

I found this book very interesting. It highlighted the difference that generals like Montgomery and Slim made to the conduct of operations. They made sure that the men at the sharp end were properly trained, eqiupped and supported.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good account of the battles in Northwest Europe, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best books I have read about the campaigns in France and Germany.
Very well written and highlights the very close comradeship of tank crews at times of
great stress.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story of courage and endurance, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a very good read and brought home to the reader the extremely harsh conditions which tank crews had to endure.
Notwithstanding the fact that they were fighting an enemy that was for the most part better equipped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tank Men by Robert Kershaw, 27 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tank Men (Paperback)
I found the book interesting to read especially the parts dealing with the actions in Russia.
However I found one glaring error and that was on Page 314 and author was describing the Crocodile
flame-thrower tank, he said "a Churchill flame-thower tank towing four hundred gallon of viscous flame fuel
in a trailer behind. Liquid was projected through the 75mm gun nozzle...."

The flame-throwing fuel (naphthelene) was not projected through the main armament but through a flame-gun
mounted in a swivelmounting in front of the co-driver and was fired by the co-driver. In a normal Churchill
tank the co-driver would have used a 7.62mm. Besa macine gun in swivel mounting.

Also the tender towed contained 40 gallons of naphthalene (not 400 gallons) if my memory serves me correctly.
