Designed as a heavily armoured tank which could accompany infantry formations, the Churchill's ability to cross rough ground and climb seemingly unassailable hills became legendary. The tank first saw action in 1942 and the basic design was constantly re-worked and upgunned, culminating in the Mark VII version which was capable of taking on the heaviest German tanks.

In his fourth book in the TankCraft series, Dennis Oliver uses archive photographs and thoroughly researched, vividly presented colour profiles to tell the story of these iconic British tanks. As readers have come to expect from the TankCraft series, the large full colour section of this book features available model kits and accessories as well as aftermarket products. In addition to the colour profiles there is a gallery of expertly constructed and painted models. A separate section explains technical details and production modifications giving the modeller all the information and knowledge required to recreate an authentic reproduction of one of the tanks that contributed so much to the British effort in the battles for Normandy.

For the modeller or the wargamer, this is a worthwhile addition to the bookshelf. Colour details are excellent and accurate as are the marking details.

Thomo's Hole - Reviewed by Ian Thompson

A great book if you are a model maker, and worth checking out even if you prefer the the real thing.

Military Vehicle Trust

Any model maker building a Churchill looking for inspiration needs to look no further. This book is a great combination of information about the units that operated the tank with a great collection of superbly built models. There is a wealth of photographs of the Churchill in action and the colour plates are worth the cover price alone. Dennis Oliver’s text is informative yet easy to read. Highly recommended to model makers and historians interested in Allied AFVS in Normandy

Scale Military Modeler International

The Tank Craft series has become very popular with modellers and enthusiasts. This new addition to the range meets the criteria of excellent photographs and drawings with descriptive text and full captions – Very Highly Recommended.

A brilliant, comprehensive and very-well illustrated look at the Churchill Tank.

If I may borrow a phrase from the late Sir Bruce Forsyth, 'this is my favourite'. Good value for money for the Churchill tank modeller, well done Dennis.
