Of all the British guns in use during the Second World War, the 25 pounder is the gun that best represents Britain’s armed forces. It was adaptable, it packed a powerful punch, and above all it was reliable. This book provides a full combat history of a gun that was used in every theatre of the Second World War and saw extensive service in the postwar years, particularly in Korea and during the Malaysian emergency. The last 25-pounder gun to see action in the British Army was one used by SAS troops at Mirbat, Oman, in 1972.
"Without a doubt this book is an excellent source of information… Highly recommended." -Jim Rae, Armorama (February 2005)
