Tank Attack at Monte Cassino: The Cavenish Road Operation 1944

Product code:  64904MIL
Early morning, 19 March 1944. Tanks manned by New Zealanders, Indians and Americans launch a daring attack along a narrow mountain track on German positions north of Monte Cassino. So began one of the most audacious Allied attempts to break through the Gustav Line and advance on Rome - and it almost succeeded. Yet the extraordinary story has seldom been told, and it has never been told before in the vivid detail Jeffrey Plowman brings to this new account. Using operational orders, combat report...

Tank Warfare on the Eastern Front 1941-42: Schwerpunkt

Product code:  81543MIL
The German panzer armies that swept into the Soviet Union in 1941 were an undefeated force that had honed their skill in combined arms warfare to a fine edge. The Germans focused their panzers and tactical air support at points on the battlefield defined as Schwerpunkt - main effort - to smash through any defensive line and then advance to envelope their adversaries. Initially, these methods worked well in the early days of Operation Barbarossa and the tank forces of the Red Army suffered defeat...

Product code:  12360MIL
This book is the fifth in a series about the Leopard tank and its derivatives used by the Belgian Army. Previous books have looked at the Bergepanzer 2 and 2000 recovery vehicles, the Pionierpanzer engineer vehicle and the Leguan bridgelayer. Belgium was the first export customer for Leopard 1.

Here, in Part 2 we conclude the story with a thorough look at Belgium’s very l...

Chieftain Down Range

Product code:  12359MIL
The British Chieftain main battle tank was, without doubt, the master of the battlefield during its time. Today, it still serves on the ‘Battlefield’, but only as a target, helping to train the current generation of tank crews. In this book, our search for Chieftain on live firing ranges does not just cover the United Kingdom but also crosses the Atlantic, visits a Mediterranean island, and also one of its former users in the Middle East. The images in this book deal with one vehicle type – the ...

Leopard AS1 - Leopard in Australian Service

Product code:  12358MIL
The first modern tank acquired by the Australian Army in the post-Second World War era was the Centurion, which began arriving in late 1951. The Centurion was a very formidable vehicle and was to remain in service for twenty-six years. Many were deployed operationally in South Vietnam from 1968 to 1971, where their firepower and armour undoubtedly helped in saving many Australian lives. By the early 1970s, however, the Centurions were becoming increasingly difficult to maintain in battle-worthy ...

The Leopard 1 in Danish Service

Product code:  12357MIL
This is a major 340-page work looking back over the whole career of the Leopard 1 from beginning to very near the end (some versions are still in service). It has been written by a former Danish Leopard 1 tank commander and an active officer of the Jutland Dragoon’s Regiment. In 1953, the Centurion Mk.V tank became the standard main battle tank of the Danish tank squadrons. At that time, it was a modern tank, but in the middle of the 1960s the development of tanks had moved on, both in NATO and ...

U.S. Army Chevrolet Trucks in World War II

Product code:  08639MIL
Between 1940 and 1945, large numbers of trucks of all categories were delivered to the U.S. Army by the Chevrolet Motor Division of General Motors. Over 160,000 of these trucks were the G-506 light four-wheel drive trucks - which became the standard 1 1/2-ton, 4x4 truck for both the U.S. Army and Army Air Corps during the war. In addition, many more thousands were delivered to Allied forces as part of the Lend-Lease program, including nearly 50,000 delivered to the Soviet Union. Tough, well-buil...

The Browning High-Power Pistol

Product code:  38094MIL
Making its debut in 1935, the Browning High-Power was the world's most widely used military pistol for much of the 20th century. Military and law-enforcement agencies in more than 90 countries have issued the High-Power and it has seen combat in conflicts from World War II through to the 'War on Terror'. After conquering Belgium, Nazi Germany produced more than 300,000 High-Powers for use by the Waffen-SS, Fallschirmjager and others, and after 1945 the High-Power became standard for most NATO-ar...
