This is is the first ever illustrated history of the Pakistan Armoured Corps. The Pakistan Armoured Corps is based on a unique blend of values and traditions inherited from its predecessors, with those of the post-Independence national army. Origins of this force can be traced back to the times the cavalry units of the British India Army were mechanized, in late 1930s. They were worked up and then deployed extensively during the World War II, and further moulded during the post-independence period and two wars with India, 1948-1971. By 1990s, the Pakistan Armoured Corps evolved into a modern fighting force in thought, organization, and equipment. Based on decades of author’s first hand experience, extensive research with help of authentic sources and official documentation, this book is providing a detailed and richly illustrated description of the build-up and expansion of the Pakistan Armoured Corps, its culture, organisation, doctrine, equipment, bases, a myriad of events and personalities, and combat operations that made it over the last 95 years. Illustrated by over 100 rare and authentic photographs, 15 colour profiles, and a similar number of maps.
