Armoured Operations in Italy

Just occasionally we are able to reprint something of such scarcity that it stands alone on our list. This publication is such an item: it covers 11 armour actions in Italy, and is accompanied with maps of each engagement plus sketches and photographs (albeit of varying quality). The actions run from the Hitler Line to Operation "Cygnet," and include such units as 51 R Tks, 7 Hussars, 46 Recce Regt and others, including the 18 NZ Armd Regt. Each action has a short account by a participant, and the whole is one of those rare gems that occasionally surface. We cannot recommend it strongly enough.
