Riassunto: A fantastic new addition to the Gun Powder series, Churchill is the first of three volumes describing the British infantry tank Churchill. Production of the Churchill began in 1941 with the development of the A20 tank by Harland & Wolff. As the war progressed the A20 was adapted and improved by Vauxhall and became the A22. The Churchill, known for its heavy armour and versatility on the battlefield, was named after Winston Churchill who had spent time during World War I developing the tank. Churchill looks at the history, design and development of the tank and deals extensively with the special variants of the vehicle including flame throwers, combat engineers versions, engineering and recovery vehicles. Included are plans and CAD illustrations of the Mk.I/II and III gun tanks. The book also includes an array of detailed images from 3D graphics to photographs and drawings. This is a comprehensive and valuable book for the modeller and historian alike.
