Cromwell Cruiser Tank 1942-50 by David Fletcher

Book Description

For most of World War II, British tank development remained faithful to the design philosophy inaugurated during World War I. Experiences in North Africa highlighted flaws in this basic design, however, and the General Staff identified the need for a new heavy cruiser that could combine speed and manoeuvrability with increased armour and armament. The Cromwell Cruiser tank was designed as a result, and soon proved itself one of the fastest and most successful tanks deployed by the Allies during World War 2. This book details the design and development of the Cromwell and its many variants, from its introduction at D-Day, through its many successes in the final year of World War 2 and beyond.

A-Z of Stuff by David Fletcher A-Z of Stuff, Paperback (November 2016)

Life is full of trivia. More and more, it seems, every waking minute of our lives is spoken for - by the inconsequential, the irrelevant, the incidental, the positively wasteful, and by a whole host of other 'stuff' that serves no purpose whatsoever other than to distract us from what is really important.

British Battle Tanks by David Fletcher British Battle Tanks, Hardback (August 2016)

A highly illustrated history of the development and operation of the first British tanks, published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of their introduction, during World War I.

First Choose Your Congo by David Fletcher First Choose Your Congo, Paperback (April 2016)

'The Congo' is something of an enigma, not least because there are actually two Congos: the Republic of Congo and the Democratic Republic of Congo. So, if one is planning to visit 'the Congo', it is only sensible that one adopts the essential advice to 'first choose your Congo'. This is what Brian and his wife did, and this is what happened.
