By Simon Dunstan & The Tank Museum
An insight into the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the British Army's most successful post-war tank.
The Centurion is significant in the history of British armoured fighting vehicles as well as being one of the most important post-war Western tanks. Introduced into British Army service in December 1946, versions of Centurion were still serving with British forces in the Iraq War of 2003, some 58 years later.
The Haynes Centurion Tank Manual is published in association with The Tank Museum and has been written with full access to the museum's Centurion collection.

I bought the 'Owners Worksop Manual' as a gift for a friend and he is delighted with it. I'm looking forward to borrowing it soon so that I too can learn about Centurions.
This is my first Haynes book and I really enjoy reading it, I would recommend this book for anyone who want to learn more about tanks.
Great, could have done with this book in 1956 in BAOR!
Ex REME chap.
A worthy addition to your Haynes Collection, and a great read as well!
Fantastic book, very informative. As a REME veteran I learned things that I had long forgotten!
