Brazilian Stuart M3, M3A1, X1, X1A2 and their Derivatives

Product code:  42592MIL
Somewhat eclipsed by medium and heavy tanks for its secondary role in the European Theatre of Operations during World War II, the Stuart tank was, however, more successful further away in the Pacific Theatre, where it surpassed in efficiency all its Japanese counterparts, albeit later out-performed by the M4 Sherman. It was in the post-war years that it would prove its mettle in Latin America due to its ease of operation and maintenance, allied to its low weight. It turned out to be much more us...

Tanks of the Early IDF - History of the IDF Armoured Corps Vol 1

Product code:  42591MIL
This book looks at examples of the first tank types to enter Israeli service. Modern-day Israel’s fight for independence began at the end of November 1947, after the UN issued its UN Partition Resolution for Palestine and continued well beyond its actual Declaration of Independence in May 1948. Knowing that there was a danger of invasion by multiple neighbouring countries, efforts to obtain weapons spread to various places around the world, plus Jewish forces took advantage of opportunities to ...

Images of War: Tank Wrecks of the Western Front 1940-1945 : Rare Photographs for Wartime Archives

Product code:  41547MIL
Early in the Second World War in Western Europe the German victors regularly photographed and posed with destroyed or abandoned Allied armour. During their invasion of France the Germans left 4,500 smashed French tanks in their wake, and these were a popular subject for their photographs. Then, when the tide of the war turned against them in 1944-5, their wrecked and burnt-out panzers were photographed by the victorious Allies during the key battles for Normandy and the Ardennes.

Panzers on the Vistula : Retreat and Rout in East Prussia 1945

Product code:  34310MIL2
Hans Schaufler fought as the commander of a Jagdpanther tank destroyer in rearguard actions against the Red Army in East Prussia in 1945\. Then, as an infantryman, he took part in the doomed defence of Danzig and made a daring escape across the Baltic in a small boat. This is his story, and it is the story of tens of thousands of soldiers and civilians who were caught up in the chaos and tragedy of the German retreat.

Africa@War 42: Portuguese Dragoons 1966-74 The Return to Horseback

Product code:  66281MIL
Between 1961 and 1974 Portugal fought a war to retain its African colonies of Angola, Guinea-Bissau, and Mozambique. Collectively known as the Campaigns for Africa, the origin of the conflict stems from the post-World War II atmosphere of nationalism and anti-colonial fervour. The Angolan insurgency began in 1961, followed by unrest in Guinea-Bissau in 1963 and Mozambique in 1964. Portugal's initial actions in Angola were based on foot-slogging by infantry, considered the best method of addressi...

Operation Chariot: The St Nazaire Raid 1942

Product code:  07298MIL
At the beginning of 1942, the Tirpitz, the heaviest battleship ever built by a European navy was on the cusp of breaking out into the north Atlantic. The prospect of a huge German battleship patrolling the Atlantic posed a grave threat to the convoys that served as the lifeline for an embattled Britain. After attempted bombing raids failed, a new and far more daring plan was created; to ram a battleship loaded with explosives into St Nazaire.

Product code:  49758MIL
Since its introduction in 1981, at the height of the Cold War, the Abrams main battle tank has been one of the most visible and iconic symbols of American military power, and it is the fascinating subject of this heavily illustrated historical and modelling guide in the TankCraft series by David Grummitt. Designed to meet head-on the massed tank forces of the Warsaw Pact, its combat debut in fact came in a different scenario in 1991 during the First Gulf War. Since then it has served in the peac...
