The Churchill tank has a strong case to be acclaimed the best British tank of World War 2. This is not to discount the achievements of the later Comet, but this tank only arrived as the Rhine was being crossed in 1945 and saw limited action. The Churchill tank slugged it out in all kinds of terrain – and proved itself to be capable of absorbing an astonishing amount of punishment. When hit, it was less prone than the Sherman to catching fire immediately, and it was certainly much better armored. Although slower than its contemporary the Cromwell, the Churchill’s true role was as an Infantry tank – to fight alongside soldiers on foot. In this role it performed superbly. This manual is based around the complete restoration in the UK of Churchill Tank Mk IV, T31579, which was built in 1941. The Churchill Mk IV was an evolution of the Mk III in which the principal difference was the cast turret, replacing the welded one on the Mk III. The armament was either a 6-pounder or a 75mm gun. Together with the Mk III, the Churchill Mk IV was present in most actions in Italy and North West Europe and with the Mk III it was the mainstay for most Churchill tank-equipped regiments after 1942.

Book Description HAYNES PUBLISHING GROUP, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Churchill tank has a strong case to be acclaimed the best British tank of World War II. Centrepiece of this manual is the restoration of a troop of three Churchill tanks to full running order by the Churchill Tank Project. The first to be restored was put through its paces at The Tank Museum in the UK, next to a Tiger tank that was originally knocked out by an identical Churchill. Author Nigel Montgomery, who owns and restores Churchills, looks at the tank's development, construction and war record, and gives a superbly illustrated insight into the fighting history of Churchills and what it is like to restore and drive them.
