A ‘gritty’ history of the 4th New Zealand Armoured Brigade, from its formation in New Zealand through to its final campaign in Italy in 1945. Author Jeffrey Plowman is a well-established ‘armoured’ buff who has specialized in studying the history of New Zealand armoured fighting vehicles and units that used them. This history includes personal experiences from several crewmembers of the various types of tanks operated by the brigade. These stories show the brutality of war from a ‘tankies’ perspective.
