Tank technology had remained virtually unchanged since World War I, but conditions in North Africa revealed the need for a faster, more maneuverable machine with increased armor and armament - and the Cormwell Cruiser was born. This book examines the design and development of the Cromwell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Osprey does its usual wonderful job I have always been a fan of Osprey's work. Here they do a great job of describing the development of the Cromwell tank 'family', it's technical specifications and its service history within the context of the overall history of British tank development during the Second World War. Also includes a good array of illustrations and photographs, which as well telling the story of the Cromwell tanks, are excellent for model makers.
