TANK BATTLES IN MINIATURE: #4 Med Campaigns 1943-45
Part of a set of five books by several authors.
Following the same format as the others in the series (on the Western Desert, Russian, and D-Day campaigns) the book includes an introduction to recreating tank battles in miniature; in particular, for simulating the conditions of the rugged Tunisian and Italian countrysides.
The author actually served with the 51st Royal Tank Regiment in Italy and so draws heavily on his own experience of what armored warfare was like. He includes detailed accounts of individual engagements which are ideal scenarios for wargamers. These really give the feel for what it was like to be the commander, driver, or gunner of a tank in action.
Chapters give a detailed breakdown of equipment performance, as well as notes on such vital related subjects as navigation, communications and minefields.
For any wargamer who wishes to pursue an interest in the Western Desert theater and continue his campaign into Tunisia and Italy, this book is ideal.
