This is a high uality product outlining in great detail the design and development of these impressive vehicles I was unaware of just how much we had learned in WW2 that as a conseuence made the Centurion arguably the best tank in the world for the next 20 years or Certainly the Israelis loved it and it put up a tremendous performance against later Soviet built Arab tanks in 1967 and especially in 1973 on the massive engagements on the Golan Heights where the so called Cal Shot Centurions wrought havoc on Syrian adversaries The subseuent Chieftain and Challenger 1 in service failings are described in detail This is perhaps the most complete history of British postwar tank development yet It also covers the Conueror heavy tank built in the 1950s in limited numbers in response to the Soviet IS 3 shown in Red Suare in 1945 to the consternation of Western observers which ironically turned out to be a total failure in service due to multiple and ultimately irreparable faults At 68 tons the Conueror was the heaviest British tank ever to see service between 1955 66 The much lighter Vickers tanks built in some considerable numbers mainly for export for primarily the Indian Army under license in the 1960s are also covered here These latter two tanks I was only vaguely aware of before buying this book This has my highest recommendation

Typical Osprey publishing presentation Good detail photos and drawingsThought Conueror could have had its own chapterFound the section on CAT1987 very interesting I had heard of this fiasco but never knew the detail as explained in the bookCould have information on service with overseas customers I was hoping for greater detail on the sale of Chieftains to Iran by IMS and service in the IraIran warIf you interested in this subject then it gives a good overview of British tank development post1945
