This is the 23rd book in the Tank Craft series which details tanks and also covers model kits and accessories to build the tanks covered in the book. This book covers the British Main Battle tank of the Gulf War - Challenger 2.

I found this book a fountain of information and rare pictures of the tanks. The Profile pictures are a favorite and awesome source for modelling.

Of particular interest was the in action and variants chapters which gave me a lot of information that I had not seen before.

The chapters on the different model builds and kits are of great interest and will provide a good resource when modelling these two tanks. There is a lot of suggestions of kit improvements and helpful details of a few great full builds

I was impressed at the amount of information and history found in the pages of this extremely enjoyable book. The pictures along are worth the cost of the book. I will find this book indispensable in my library of armor books.

I recommend this book to everyone with an interest in armor and modelling armor. I very much look forward to other releases in this book series and any by Rob Giffin.

Thanks go to Casemate Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them
