Book Alert: Challenger 1 Haynes Manual

hanes manualAmazon has an October 15 release date posted for Challenger 1 Main Battle Tank 1983-2001, the latest installment in the Haynes Owner’s Workshop Manual series on tanks.  Written by Dick Taylor, this book follows the well established format of the Haynes series, which have covered a number of tanks, including the Tiger, Sherman, Churchill and WWI Mark IV tank.  Taylor is an experienced author, having written several books for the MMP “Green Series” as well as a book on the British Cruiser Comet for the Armor Photogallery Series.  It will be interesting to see how this book compares to the very good two volume set on the Challenger 1 by Rob Griffin published last year by Kagero Press.
