4.0 out of 5 stars Universal Carrier 1936-48, 8 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A decent and knowledgable read that gives a decent overview of one of the 20th century's most quirky yet popular armoured vehicles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview and general read, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you only wanted to buy one book on the subject, this publication is probably sufficient. It is a good general read with several pages of coloured artwork. The balance is towards giving working examples of carriers with particular units, for which a good working knowledge of armies' structures is probably needed. This probably suits many readers who will also presumably be model-makers and will enjoy having the individual unit details provided to consider or use for making models of carriers. The reader also needs to have a good working knowledge of theatres, campaigns and battle outcomes but that is probably a given.

The book is not strong on design, construction, or the manufacturing in quantity by various manufacturers, which must have been a considerable task? How well did the Ford V8 perform between any services or was it a case of replace rather than repair? Some more personal recollections of carrier drivers, even if only a couple of paragraphs would have amplified the driving experience, particularly about turning a carrier about which I found the text a bit brief.
