Designed as a heavily armored 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 reworked 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 color 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 color profiles there is a gallery of expertly constructed and painted models.

A separate section explains technical details and production modifications giving the modeler 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.

About The Author

Dennis Oliver is the author of over twenty books on Second World War armored vehicles.


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.

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

“Archival black-and-white photographs and vivid color images complement the author’s painstakingly researched text covering everything from unit histories to technical analysis… This book about an iconic tank that contributed so much to the victorious British campaign in Normandy and beyond should be of great interest to history buffs and an inspirational aid to modelers.”
