A decent enough book but unexceptional (a bit like the tank, really)
on 15 November 2011
The book does contain a number of facts and relevant figures, which is a good thing.
It gives an idea of the lunacy behind some of the decisions regarding adoption of British tanks in WW2 but it offers very little in the way of any combat evidence and for that, the book only gets 3 stars. Good for fact hunters and modellers but for those who want to see some proper opinions on the tank's actual intended role, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere. I'd have expected, at least, some mention of the 4th CLY and there is. It's a one liner.
