(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) This splendid book covers the full history of the Royal Australian Armoured Corps, from the late 1920s when a small number of British Vickers Medium and Light Tanks were used. The outbreak of WWII led to Australian armoured units seeing action in North Africa, Syria and Greece, and closer to home on the Pacific Islands against the Japanese. The book is illustrated with photos, maps and scale plans of various marks of Stuart, Grant and Matildas, plus notes on colour and markings. Also includes summaries of vehicle strengths, glossary of terms and abbreviations plus a full bibliography (Published: 2003) (Publisher: RAAC Tank Museum) (ISBN: 1876439750) (Pagination: 199pp, 88 b/w photos, 6 maps, 9 ills) (Condition: Mint in pictorial boards) UL-XXXXXX.
