David Fletcher takes a detailed look at Marks I to V of The Matilda Infantry Tank
The Matilda was the principal British infantry tank in the early years of World War II. It served with the BEF in France and later in North Africa, where it earned the title 'Queen of the Desert'. Outclassed by increasingly powerful German anti-tank weapons, it still remained a power in the South-East Pacific, and was kept in service until the end of the war by Australian forces. Development and operational history are discussed, along with service in other countries, including Germany and Russia. Numerous variants are also covered, including the prototype 'Hedgehog' bunker-busting weapon.
The style of this book is great, excellent info imparted in a easy to access manor, technical details included but not bogged down with them. Use, arenas and who used the tanks very helpful. Excellent reading material for war gamers and model makers alike
