Book Description
"Documentary novel of a World War 3 Tank Commander.... Chieftains is a frighteningly authentic novel of the invasion of Europe by the Russian and Warsaw Pact armed forces seen through the eyes of the fighting men on the ground. In particular it tells the story of the crew of Bravo Two, a Chieftain main battle tank of the British 4th Armoured Division as they face the onslaught of the Soviet armour onto the killing zones of the German Plain".

This is a much sought after book (silly prices), particularly amongst those of us that served with BAOR in W Germany during the 1980's.Forrestt-Webb has captured the feel, attitudes and values of life as a 'Tankie'. A fast-paced, accurate scenario, and an interesting read. For old soldiers it will bring back memories.

This is what the book looks like:

Special thanks to the author Bob Forrest-Webb, who donated and signed the book. :thumright:

For what it's worth: I bought a copy of this book a while back, second hand from the t'interweb in good condition, for about £50.

This book, unread, and signed is worth a great deal more than that!

The book is well written, and a good read.

We'll be plugging this auction at Tankfest at the weekend. It's not often people get the chance to buy this book, let alone an unread and signed copy!
I read this when it first came out.

Thank you for your generous bid, CTD. :)I was about to say that I could deliver it in person in August. :-D
I'll probably be around in Aug as well. :)
