About the Author

Charles Messenger is a widely recognised military historian, who served for 19 years as a Regular officer and for 13 years as a Territorial in the Royal Tank Regiment. His service took him to Libya, Germany, the USA and Northern Ireland. He is the author of more than 40 books on military history and defence matters, and they range from campaign studies through to biographies and regimental histories. He has also carried numerous historical studies for the Ministry of Defence and has written and helped to direct a number of TV documentaries. He lectures widely, peer reviews for publishers and is also an occasional battlefield guide.


There is probably nothing you could find out about the regiment in this timeframe that hasn't been addressed here by Charles Messenger. * Classic Military Vehicle Magazine * Meticulously researched and supplemented with maps and images, the book is a testament to the formation's versatility in the face of great change. * Soldier Magazine * Time and time again we see in this book, the Government cut backs on spending, the Regiment then has to shrink down and survive with limited spares, to be promptly asked to go and fight another war, all the time with a reduction in manpower and spares excellent read and a must for any one interested in AFVs or the History of the RTR. 5 stars. * Army Rumour Service * Members of this most illustrious Regiment both past and present will treasure this volume. Those with no connection to the RTR will come away full of admiration for those that choose to go into battle in a metal box. This is a marvellous read and highly recommended for all interested in military matters. * Tankette *
