Oh Dear !

I know they say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but when there are only 5 pictures of tanks on the cover of a book about the Centurion, and one of them is of a Chieftain ...

From the Pen & Sword 'Tank Craft' website ...

"An innovative series following in the footsteps of the popular Ship Craft and Flight Craft ranges, launching in Autumn 2016, TankCraft aims to provide modelmakers and tank enthusiasts with a new standard of primarily visual reference of both full-size tanks and their scale models.

Each book will contain detailed technical information imparted through drawings and photographs while the meticulously researched full-colour profiles will provide a complete reference for paint schemes and markings. In addition, every volume of the Tank Craft series will feature summaries of design histories and operational careers, and review of available kits. Each book is devoted to an iconic tank type – chosen for its popularity as a modelling subject – and the series will provide coverage across a range of different criteria, showcasing the best of the world's tank types and providing invaluable insight and guidance for modelmakers.

Sale (Centurion)
Saving £2.99 (20%)
New Release (Chieftain)
RRP £14.99
Sale ......."

P&S have done quite a number of tanks in the series. ( https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Tank-Craft/s/88 )

Has anyone seen any of the series and can comment about the content, in particular, the Centurion and Chieftain books? The gaff on the cover isn't a good start!

This was a comment from Al Bowie on Facebook:

"This range of books is great if the Author is Dennis Oliver but be very wary of other authors in the range. A good friend was a contributor to that one and sent a huge list of complaints to the editor to no avail"
