TANK FACTORY

WILLIAM SUTTIE    Book Number: 86391    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'British Military Vehicle Development and the Chobham Establishment', the book contains a large number of pictures never before published, many from MOD reports or sent by ex-members of staff. Despite being the inventor of the tank and responsible for campaign-winning tactics, by the start of the Second World War, the UK had fallen well behind other nations in the design and build of armoured vehicles. Here William Suttie uncovers the history of tank design from a government research and development perspective, and the decisions and failures that led to that state of affairs. He details the formation of the Fighting Vehicles Research and Development Establishment at Chertsey, known as the Tank Factory. The establishment sought to ensure that the UK became world-leading in the field of military vehicle research and design, and that the British Army would never be under-protected or out-gunned again. History, groundbreaking research, inventions and designs and includes first-hand insights from those who worked there. 224pp in large softback, very well illustrated throughout with photos, diagrams and charts.
