By David Fletcher
Out of print for many years, Mechanised Force along with Land Ships, War Cars are effectively prequels to David Fletcher’s two-volume history of British Armour in the Second World War
Originally published by HMSO, The Tank Museum has the rights to republish the original text, complete with a 21st Century makeover.
Mechanised Force is a history of the British tank arm from 1919 to 1939, chronicling events and innovations between the wars. It’s the most comprehensive book on the subject, describing every design, prototype and production vehicle.
This book gave me a clear insight into how tank development in the UK progressed... or did not progress during the inter-war years.
