British Cruiser Tanks A9 & A10
By Peter Brown
Number five in the ‘Armor PhotoHistory’ series, this expanded version of this high quality publication takes a look at the popular Cruiser A9 and A10 tank. I was initially quite alarmed when I saw the retail price but once you have viewed the superb 124 photographs, 30 colour profiles and 64 line drawings, alarm quickly turns to wow! A large number of the images are credited to the Imperial War Museum which gives an immediate indication that little expense was spared in the making of this book. Pages 3 to 26 cover the development, production and service history of the Cruiser followed by a large ‘PhotoGallery’ section; each image being supported by a useful caption and credit. A batch of 1/35 scale line multi-view drawings is next featuring the Mk.I Cruiser ICS, Mk.I , Mk.IA Cruiser Mk.IIA and the Mk.IA Cruiser Mk.IIS. These are backed up by a number of technical drawings (six to a page) with the excellent colour profiles bring up the rear.
A book for serious military modellers – highly recommended. Thanks to Tom Bonnington at Casemate for our review copy which is available from www.casematepublishers.co.uk.
