Название: Valentine Infantry Tank 1938-1945 (Osprey New Vanguard 233) Автор: Bruce Newsome Издательство: Osprey Publishing Год: 2016 Формат: True PDF Страниц: 52 Размер: 31 Mb Язык: English
The Valentine was the most produced and most widely used British tank of the Second World War. The Valentine first saw combat during Operation Compass in November 1941 and remained one of the main medium tanks in British service into 1943. As the Churchill became more prevalent the Valentine was relegated to specialist and tank-destroyer variants, which would remain in service in the Far East to the end of the war. This book describes the evolution of the Valentine design and weighs up its impact on the battlefield. Although widely regarded today as one of the weaker tanks to be fielded during the war, it was exceptionally numerous, with more Valentines produced than any other British tank.

Between January 17 and February 28, 1991, an international military coalition sanctioned by the United Nations and led by the United States defeated a large, well-equipped Iraqi army and forced it to withdraw from occupied Kuwait, in what is now known as the Persian Gulf War. As the first major military action after the end of the Cold War, many view the Gulf War as the precursor of a new military doctrine for conflicts in the 21st century; ground troops from 19 countries around the globe participated in the operation, reflecting the ever-changing environment in post-Cold War politics. From Al Firdos Bunker, a hardened bunker that U.S. intelligence believed was the Iraqi Internal Security Directorate, to Lieutenant General John Yeosock, commander of the U.S. 3rd Army in the Gulf War, this is a comprehensive reference work to the people, places, events, weapons, operations, and other matters in the Persian Gulf War. A chronology is also provided, covering the major events from 1958 through 1991 that led to the rise of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, his invasion of Kuwait, and the rousting of Iraqi forces from that country.
