By Michael K. Cecil and Michael Shackleton

An insight into the design, construction, operation and maintenance of Germany's first post- war armoured fighting vehicle. 

The Leopard 1 family of vehicles became the first fully-German developed series of armoured combat vehicles to be built since the end of the Second World War. Using the German-built version of the British L7 105mm gun the Leopard focused on firepower and with its impressive cross-country performance it was unmatched by most other tank designs of the era. Michael Shackleton and Mike Cecil consider the design, development, anatomy and operational service of the Leopard 1 in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Croatia, Kosova and Somalia.

Leopard German Tank

Once again a beautifully presented and printed book in the Haynes Series. Worth reading for the thought processes regarding the Tanks size and armament. Started as a common project with the French and then with de Gaulle in power went their own way, The French with the AMX30. Both decided on smaller, lighter, more agile tanks as against the British heavier more heavily armoured tanks. They both had to take on board the lessons the Israelis learnt to up- armour them against the newer Russian Tanks and missiles.

Very good

It's a very good book, I bought it mostly to learn the developmental history of the Leopard and the difference between its models/variants and it did not disappoint. Great value for the price.
