Review

Adam Jonca's superb study of Poland's Vickers 6 Ton tanks continues.  And the second and final part – volume 3 in Stratus' acclaimed "Polish Tracks & Wheels" series – spans several subjects, including other Vickers models and local design derivatives:

  • Medium Mark D
  • 6 Ton
  • Carden-Loyd Mk.VI
  • 4 Ton Artillery Tractor
  • 4 Ton Light Tank
  • Light Amphibious Tank
  • 7TP
  • Light Tank V/7TP Conversions
  • Reinforced 7TP

Contents chronologically course through design, development, technical details, testing, service and fates.  Operational coverage of the 7TP – the book's principal protagonist – recaps Polish, German and Soviet use.

Only 124 7TPs, arguably Poland's most potent tank, faced Germany's onslaught in August 1939. Operational survivors initially served with at least three Nazi armored divisions – and, later, with German police units in rear areas of the Eastern Front.

Nearly 200 photos illustrate text.  And over 25 color plates depict vehicle color schemes, unit markings, signaling symbols, and equipment and organization of Polish light tank battalions.

Jonca's beautiful profiles will really rouse your modeling muse.  But unless I missed something, the author explains the use of two different 1936 olive green camouflage paints – but not the brighter green shade depicted in a few color plates.

I absolutely loved Polish Vickers Part 2.  Get this book!
