Book Alert: The Armor Journal #5

Armor Journal 5The fine folks over at The Armor Journal have released their fifth issue.  This new issue is available now for download or as a print copy starting on June 5.  The good news is that print editions are now only $9.95 plus shipping or $8.50 plus shipping if pre-ordered now.  Issue 5 contains a variety of articles covering AFV history, both early and modern, as well as some pieces aimed at the model building community, book reviews, letters to the Editor and readers submissions.

Those interested in early AFV history will enjoy the article on the pre-WWII Vickers Six Ton Tank by Peter Brown as well as the Yuri Pasholok article on British Infantry tanks in Soviet service during WWII.  Those interested in more recent history will enjoy the article by Mason Pacek on the Battle for Baghdad.  For those into model building, Chris Medding’s opinion piece “Rivet Counters” and Don Haney’s  description of his model of the US Abrams tank “All Bout Da Bones” will be good reading.
