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 armoured 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 Theatre and continue his campaign into Tunisia and Italy, this book is ideal.
