Operation Torch: The Invasion of North Africa, Then and Now

Product code:  67966MIL
In 2012 Jean Paul Pallud wrote the After the Battle account of the Desert War; now he completes the story with detailed coverage of the landings of Operation ‘Torch’ in North-West Africa in November 1942. When the western Allies decided to launch a second front in North Africa, they carefully considered the anti-British feeling left in France by the ill-advised attack by the Royal Navy on the French Fleet at Mers el Kébir in July 1940. Consequently, the operation was given an American rather tha...

The G3 Battle Rifle

Product code:  28620MIL
During the Cold War, the G3 was one of the world's pre-eminent battle rifles. Developed in France and Spain after 1945, the rifle was produced by the German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch. Adopted by more than 40 countries and produced on licence by many more, it was widely employed during colonial wars in Africa, insurgencies in Latin America and conflicts in the Middle East, but perhaps its widest use was in the Iran-Iraq War.

Tankcraft (15) Chieftain British Cold War Main Battle Tank

Product code:  41424MIL
The British Chieftain - designed in the late 1950s as the replacement for the Centurion - was perhaps the best main battle tank in service with Nato during the 1960s and 1970s. Its 120mm rifled main gun and advanced armour made it one of the most formidable tanks of its time, and Robert Jackson's book is an authoritative introduction to it. Although it was intended to fight Soviet armour on the plains of northern Germany, it was in the heat and sand of the Middle East that the Chieftain fought i...

Images of War: US Cold War Tanks and Armoured Fighting Vehicles-Rare Photographs from Wartime Archives

Product code:  27213MIL
To counter the Soviet threat and that of their client States during the Cold War years 1949-1991, the American military deployed an impressive range of main battle tanks (MBTs) and armoured fighting vehicles (AFVs). The Patton series of medium MBTs (including the M46, M47 and M48) supplemented by the M103s Heavy Tank initially formed the core of the US tank fleet. In 1960 the M60 MBT with its British designed 105mm gun entered service and, in turn, was replaced by the M1 Abrams in 1980. In supp...

Modern Tanks and AFVs: 1991-Present Armoured Fighting Vehicles

Product code:  47253MIL
According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, there are 60,000 tanks in active service worldwide. With 7,450 tanks, China has by far the most. This is followed by North Korea with 3,500 tanks. Tanks might not have been a huge component in modern warfare in the past two decades, but countries are still ordering new models. Also, nations previously without strong traditions of tank warfare are building up their forces. In recent years, countries in Asia, such as India, Pakistan,...
