TARGET German and Italian Tanks, AFV's, Artillery, Weapons
produced by G.S.I, G.H.Q., M.E.F, Cairo, 1942
A very rare original WW2 Tank, A.F.V., and enemy weapons recognition manual, published by G.H.Q., Middle East Forces, Cairo, in September 1942. The book is signed on the front endpaper by ‘Capt [Liam?] W. A. O’Hare, B.I.O., 60 Indian Infantry Brigade’. (I think ‘B.I.O.’ is either Battalion or Brigade Inteligence officer). The manual includes details, specifications and illustrations of German, Italian, and other european tanks, AFV’s, transport, and armoured cars in use in North Africa at that time. Among the enemy vehicles covered are German tanks, artillery, APC’s, anti-tank and flak weapons, and various other vehicles, uniforms, and weapons of the Axis powers. There are also details of Czech and French tanks which were captured and re-used by the German army. The book is well illustrated throughout, with numerous black and white photographs.
In good condition. The card cover is in good condition, with general signs of use, creased corners, and some marks. The binding is good and secure. The text, photographs and illustrations are in good condition, with some creased corners. Signed on the front endpaper by ‘Capt [Liam?] W. A. O’Hare, B.I.O., 60 Indian Infantry Brigade’.
