This is the 5th 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 tanks - Cromwell and Centaur which were Cruiser type tanks. The Cromwell being one of the most successful Cruiser tanks used by the Allies during World War II.

I found this book to be a fountain of information and rare pictures of both tanks. The profile pictures are a particular favorite and awesome source for modelling.

The chapters on the different model builds and kits are of great interest and will provide a good resource when modelling these two tanks.

I was impressed at the amount of information and history found in the pages of this extremely enjoyable book. The pictures alone are worth the cost of the book. I will find this book indispensible 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 Dennis Oliver.

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