By Richard Doherty
The aim of this book is the examine the role of the British armoured divisions during the second world war, assessing performance and achievements, especially in light in the problems besetting British tank design.
Eleven armoured divisions were formed, however 2 divisions never saw action. being disbanded in the United Kingdom. while many independent armoured brigades were formed, and frequently assigned to infantry divisions, their role is outside the scope of this book, although some of them will be referred to in the narrative.
Written by a leading military historian this book describes many fascinating aspects of armoured warfare from its uncertain beginnings, through the development of tactics and the evolving tank design. Due to British deficiencies, reliance had to be placed on the US Grants and Sherman with the Comet coming late and the Centurion too late.
The combination of gripping historical narrative and well researched facts make this an invaluable and highly readable work on the contribution of the British Armoured Divisions to victory in the Second World War.
