The Universal Tank
By David Fletcher
David Fletcher’s definitive The Universal Tank has been re-printed for the first time since publication in 1989.
This rare and highly collectable title has been out of print for many years, but it's significance, insight and importance remain. It offers a critique of the military authorities, industry and government, all presented in David’s unique and witty style.
In The Universal Tank, he examines the lessons learned from combat, which ultimately gave rise to one of the most successful tank designs ever: the Centurion.

Bought as a companion to 1st volume, sadly not read any yet due to reading some good books about AFVs.
Looks good and very informative from a master of AFV history and development.
