Crusader and Covenanter Cruiser Tanks 1939-45 by David Fletcher

Book Description

The Covenanter (which never saw active service) and Crusader Cruiser tanks were developed between 1939 and 1940. The Crusader first saw action in the North African desert in June 1941: its speed and sleek design made it a hard target to hit, and the tank was well-respected by the Afrikakorps for its velocity in combat. But its hurried development prior to World War II also made it prone to mechanical failure. This book examines the Covenanter and the many variants of the Crusader tank, detailing the designs, developments and disappointments of these infamous World War II tanks.

Life is full of trivia.

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.
