Specialised armour of the 79th Division



This is the British Army’s manual on ‘The Characteristics and Tactical Employment of Specialised Armour’ that includes all of the technical and tactical aspects of the different equipment that was used.

It appears to have been a provisional manual produced in 1945 but then amended in 1947 with handwritten updates.

The contents covers all of the variants employed.

  • Tank Flamethrowers
  • Flails
  • Assault Vehicles Royal Engineers (AVRE’s) (characteristics and organisation only)
  • Specialised Armour in the Assault
  • DD Tanks
  • Landing Vehicles Tracked (LVTs)

It’s 166 pages of really in-depth information on all aspects of their use and isn’t something that is readily available elsewhere.
