The latest addition to the Osprey Duel series is a comprehensive, illustrated study of coalition armour in the Iraq War of 2003- 2006. Drawing on firsthand accounts, official post-battle analyses and specification manuals, military historian Dr Chris McNab tackles how armoured forces responded to the changing nature of Iraqi insurgent tactics, utilising a variety of sepcific clashes from Basra to Mahmoudiyah to demonstrate how opposition was neutralised.
Following a chronology of the first three years of war, McNab goes on to profile the design and development of the AFVs of both sides, before detailing their specifications and how they performed in combat. The text is accompanied by stunning side colour profiles of various tanks and APCs, battle-scene illustrations and contemporary photographs.
