By 1968, when this small hardback was initially published, the Cold War in Europe was quite static and the British Army had a significant presence in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). Most of its training and preparation was for a war against the Eastern Bloc nations especially the nearby Deutsche Demokratische Republik (DDR) or East Germany. This book is divided into four parts - Armour, Artillery, Small Arms and Guided Weapons- and catalogues everything in use by the British Army at the time.
