From the publisher:
Great Britain. which had introduced the tank to the world during World War I and maintained its lead in armored warfare with the “Experimental Mechanised Force” during the late 1920s, was watched with interest by German advocates of blitzkrieg. Despite successes, the Experimental Mechanised Force was disbanded in the 1930s, leaving Britain relatively unprepared for World War II in terms of armored doctrine and equipment.

This new study of the men who crewed the tanks of Britain’s armored forces during WWII looks at the recruitment and training of the vast numbers of men required, their equipment, appearance, and combat experience in every theatre of the war as the British sought to catch up with the German panzers.


FSM says:
If your British tank kit comes with figures, you’ll appreciate this reference for clothing and equipment of British tankers — including color guidance.
