The book follows the general 'Osprey New Vanguard' format in giving a brief overview of the Cromwell cruiser tank and its versions. Following a general background and development section - including the Cavalier versions - the book goes into production, testing, engines, guns, subtypes, difficulties, some limited information on action use. Both wartime and post WW2 versions are explored, too and the book has the standard collection of pictures, colour plates and a collection of further readings.
While a list of foreign operators is included (together with some post WW2 pictures), the book does not really provide any details of the tank's operational use or many on experience in foreign armed forces, even if quite some were used in anger.
Still, a good first overview of the tank's history and development, that will likely give the readers a taste for one of the most solid British WW2 tanks.
