The Churchill tank has a strong case to be acclaimed the best British tank of World War II. Centrepiece of this manual is the restoration of a troop of three Churchill tanks to full running order by the Churchill Tank Project. The first to be restored was put through its paces at The Tank Museum in the UK, next to a Tiger tank that was originally knocked out by an identical Churchill. Author Nigel Montgomery, who owns and restores Churchills, looks at the tank's development, construction and war record, and gives a superbly illustrated insight into the fighting history of Churchills and what it is like to restore and drive them.
Insights into the construction, operation and maintenance of Britain's best infantry tank of World War II. Restored with the help of the Tank Museum, Bovington. One of only a handful of Churchills in running order worldwide. Author has an ongoing restoration project with two other Churchill tanks. Partner volume to Haynes Manuals on Tiger, Sherman and Great War tanks.
