Description - The 25-pounder Field Gun 1939-72 by Chris Henry

Of all the British guns in use during World War II, the 25 pounder is the gun that best represents Britain's armed forces. It was adaptable, it packed a powerful punch, and above all it was reliable. These guns were used in the BEF battles in northern France and Belgium, but were lost during the battle for France and the Dunkirk evacuation. This book provides a full combat history of a gun that was used in every theatre of World War II and saw extensive service in the post war years, particularly in Korea and during the Malaysian emergency. The last 25 pounder gun was used in action by SAS troops at Mirbat, Oman in 1972.
