9781472813756: Valentine Infantry Tank 1938–45 (New Vanguard)

The Valentine was Britain's most produced and most widely used tank of the Second World War. Having the strange distinction of falling somewhere between an infantry tank and a cruiser tank, the Valentine first saw combat during Operation Compass in November 1941 and remained one of the main medium-size tanks in British service into 1943. As the Churchill tank became more prevalent, the Valentine was relegated to specialist variants like amphibious and bridge-layer tanks, which would remain in service in the Far East up until the end of the war.
This book describes the evolution of the Valentine design and weighs up its impact on the battlefield. Widely regarded today as one of the weaker tanks to be fielded during the war, it was exceptionally numerous--more Valentines were produced than any other British tank and accounted for 25 percent of the tanks produced in Britain during the war.

Review :

"Osprey has collected a staff of excellent writers and researchers to bring readers insights on many historic military vehicles. Both Osprey and author Newsome continue this tradition in a concise affordable volumn. The story of the Valentine Infantry Tank covers several derivatives that were antecedents to future vehicles and some that were dead ends. The variety in this book makes for interesting reading." - AMPS

"This volume will be of great use to the armor and diorama modeler as well as the World War II enthusiast and historian." - Armorama.com
