9780141041919: Main Battle Tank

Taking a tank into war . . .

The British Army's Challenger II Main Battle Tank is one of the most awesome war machines ever built. In March 2003, three Squadrons of Challenger 2s from the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, part of Britain's 7th Armoured Brigade, the fabled Desert Rats, gathered in Southern Iraq to prepare for battle.The Army's newest Big Guns were going to war for the first time.

But Operation TELIC was a war which the Challenger 2, designed to operate in the fog and mud of the Central European Plain, had never been expected to fight. And one that would quickly break every rule of tank warfare including the golden maxim: never take a tank into a town.

In Main Battle Tank, author Niall Edworthy, granted unprecedented access to the Scots DGs, tells the story of an extraordinary chapter in the history of British Army. From the terrifying rescue of a stricken Challenger 2 and countless nerve-shredding raids into Basra and Az Zubyar, to the biggest tank engagement fought by the British since the end of WWII, Main Battle Tank is the brutal, blistering true story of a war that tested man and machine to the bloody limit.

Review:

"An emotional rollercoaster... the retelling of the Challengers' devastating displays of firepower in tense, close-quarter battles in and around Basra which will awe every reader... Fast-paced and charged with action..." --Soldier Magazine

"A breathtaking insight into the heaviest fighting experienced by British troops in Iraq. Powerful, terrifying, relentless -- the action comes at you like the Challenger itself." --Ross Kemp

"Explosive" --The Sun

"... an intimate, vivid and action-packed account of armoured fighting in the heavily-defended `complex terrain' of urban Basra." --Military Times (Book of the Month)

"Edworthy steers with a sure and steady hand through the plunging drama and roiling violence in his detailed, gripping account of the tank's final battle. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in the smoke-wreathed belly of mechanised war." --Anthony Loyd, War Correspondent, The Times

About the Author:
