Osprey New Vanguard 8 : Matilda Infantry Tank 1938-1945

The Matilda was the principal British infantry tank in the early years of World War II. It served with the BEF in France and later in North Africa, where it earned the title 'Queen of the Desert'. Outclassed by increasingly powerful German anti-tank weapons it still remained a power in the South-East Pacific, and was kept in service until the end of the war by Australian forces. David Fletcher deals with Marks I to V. Developmental and operational history are discussed, along with service in other countries, including Germany and Russia. Numerous variants are also covered, including the prototype 'Hedgehog' bunker-busting weapon. Illustrations by Peter Sarson.
