The Covenanter (which never saw active service) and Crusader Cruiser tanks
were developed between 1939 and 1940. The Crusader first saw action in the North
African desert in June 1941: its speed and sleek design made it a hard target to
hit, and the tank was well-respected by the Afrikakorps for its velocity in
combat. But its hurried development prior to World War II also made it prone to
mechanical failure. This book examines the Covenanter and the many variants of
the Crusader tank, detailing the designs, developments and disappointments of
these infamous World War II tanks. Contents: Design and Development *
Technical Analysis * Variants * The Crew * Operational
History * Variants * Cutaway of a Crusader III * Colour plates by Peter
Sarson.
