The British Army in Germany
1st Armoured Division and other units - from 2000 until the end
Written by Sebastian Kreutzkamp
The British Army of the Rhine had a presence in Germany for 70 years. With the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, all Western forces were drastically reduced. The BAOR was no exception.
This Photo Album celebrates their final years through the eyes of a native German whose enthusiasm for Britsh armour, and the huge variety of other military vehicles, shines through.
This book covers all arms and services within the British Army based in Germany throughout this period.
The focus lies on the deployed vehicles – heavy and light armour, a huge variety of soft-skin logistic vehicles small and large,fighting vehicles and engineer vehicles. From the Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank to the ubiquitous Land Rover, the Lynx helicopter to the M3 Amphibious Bridging Vehicle.
