Predominantly arranged as a photographic album, this book is a fascinating pictorial history of allied tanks used by the Czechoslovak Independent Armoured Brigade (CIABG), an armoured unit of expatriate Czechoslovaks organised and equipped by the United Kingdom during the Second World War.

Aside from around 6 or so pages of text (with all text in both English and Czech), every page of the book is taken up with over 180 black and white photographs showing vehicles, and each photograph has a short caption detailing what is shown (this caption is in both Czech and English).

From the publishers description: The publication contains an overview of identification numbers for all tanks, which CIABG received in England. When some of them returned to Czechoslovakia, they later received new registration numbers of the post-war Czechoslovak army....

Condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
