The Essential Vehicle Identification Guide: Postwar Armoured Fighting Vehicles 1945–present offers an highly-illustrated guide to the world’s main armoured units and their fighting vehicles used since the end of World War II. This compact volume includes sample unit structures and orders of battle from divisional to corps and army level, providing an organizational context for key wars fought since 1945.

Organised chronologically, the book offers a comprehensive survey of units and their armoured fighting vehicles by war, including Korea, Vietnam, the Arab–Israeli conflicts, Indo-Pakistan wars, the cold war in Europe, the Yugoslav civil war, the Iraq wars and Afghanistan.

All the major and many minor tanks are featured, with variations of the T-72, M1 Abrams and Centurion, for example, as well as personnel carriers, engineering and mine-clearing vehicles. Lesser known models such as armoured cars, halftracks, trucks and amphibious vehicles combine to make this a rounded compendium of modern armoured fighting vehicles.

Packed with more than 200 full-colour artworks and photographs with exhaustive specifications, The Essential Vehicle Identification Guide: Postwar Armoured Fighting Vehicles 1945–present is a key reference guide for military modellers and vehicle enthusiasts.
