Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Main Battle Tank (Hardcover)
This is a penetrating analysis of tank warfare and for anybody remotely interested in military history is a book that must be read. The details of the magnificent Challenger tank and its formidable weaponry are closely researched and the book is made all the better by the clear respect the men have for it and for each other. Because we get to know the real characters, there is a feeling that you are with them not only in Iraq but also in their actions not to mention ordeals.
Most of all there is a wonderful appreciation of what those officers and men went through and of their abundant courage. The author has given us the privilege of an insight into the minds of young eighteen year old raw recruits as well as into those of battle hardened warriors and leaders.
