TANK TRACKS TO RANGOON The Story of British Armour in Burma

TANK TRACKS TO RANGOON
The Story of British Armour in Burma  

RRP: £14.99
OUR PRICE: £3.99  

The jungles of Burma are not ideal tank country, but as this book amply shows, the 7th Armoured Brigade, fighting with Bill Slim's 14th Army in the Second World War were massively effective, giving the Japanese a taste of mechanised warfare from which they would never recover.
Fighting in a somewhat forgotten corner of Empire during the Second World War, the British and Indian armoured regiments called upon to harness the power of tank warfare to extreme new levels did so in an effort to outwit an enemy until then considered invincible - the Imperial Japanese Army. Their collective efforts were heroic and massively effective, giving the Japanese a taste of mechanised warfare from which they never recovered. Bryan Perrett describes the full course of the armoured units' efforts, illustrating the importance of the mighty 7th Armoured Brigade; a 'magnificent formation' in General Bill Slim's estimation. In a conflict that saw much development in the field of tank design and production, Perrett illustrates the practical repercussions of such advances in this most extreme of wartime environments. Detailed research has produced hard evidence of the Japanese use of gas against British tanks, and countless instances of Japan's human-bomb anti-tank technique. Above all, this book shows to what extent the tank can prove a decisive weapon in the unlikeliest areas.
