Churchill Tank by David Fletcher
David Fletcher’s title on the Churchill tank has been republished with a 21st Century makeover.
This title was originally published by HMSO in 1983 but have been out of print for many years. The Tank Museum has republished the book as the next step in its programme to make David Fletcher’s early work available to modern standards at a fair price.
This title is primarily based around the Official War Office Handbooks, complete with detailed illustrations and technical drawings and covering every facet of the vehicle from engine, clutch, transmission, turret, ammunition and armament.
David supplements this book with vehicle histories, alongside additional documents and scale diagrams.
In The Churchill Tank, he details the troubled development of a tank which would become a stalwart of the Royal Armoured Corps and participate in some of the hardest fighting of the war.
Cromwell Tank by David Fletcher is also available here.
very helpful good drawings and photos should help with d day models that I am making.
I think this is a beautifully produced little book, which I purchased along with the mini Haynes manual on the same tank. Both books will provide all the reference I need for some upcoming modelling projects. As usual with the Tank Museum the customer service was top notch.
Well written, and the compilation of the “user manuals” place this book at the head of the class. If you are interested in the Churchill tank this book needs to be in your collection.
A very well written and a valuable technical source for those wanting to know more about the workings and maintenance of the Churchill Tank. My only comment would be the Book be on a larger format but this is a another welcome source of information not seen in other books to my knowledge. and my only regret is I wished I had bought it sooner. And thank you for the added discount on my order which I could not submit on the order form.
