Arranged as a photographic album, this book is a fascinating pictorial history of the Czechoslovak Independent Armoured Brigade, an armoured unit of expatriate Czechoslovaks organised and equipped by the United Kingdom during the Second World War. Aside from 12 or so pages of text at the start and end of the book (in both English and Czech), every page of the book is taken up with a total of over 700 black and white photographs showing the men, equipment and vehicles of the Brigade during the war, and each photograph has a very short caption detailing what is shown (this caption is in both Czech and English).

Condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
