Product description

Review

.,."aside from having a basic "one-stop" history of these British units in an economical form, those modelers of British wheeled AFVs should find much of interest between these covers. This is especially so, considering the imminent release of two new Staghound armored cars and two new Humber scout cars as injection-molded styrene kits. Recommended." -Frank DeSisto, "missing-lynx.com"
"Thanks to a superb choice of images, most of which are shown here for the first time, and the excellent illustrations of Rob Chapman, we get a look at these men and how they appeared during their long years of war. It is another fascinating Osprey title about a little-known portion of WWII and one that you will enjoy reading as much as I did." -Scott Van Aken, "modelingmadness.com
""It isn't a book about British Armored cars but it is a very interesting book. It has got considerable value for the modeller but that isn't its primary aim. Personally, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the area as an excellent introduction to a disgracefully documented subject." -Jim Rae, "Aeroscale "(March 2007)
