Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Chieftains is a frighteningly authentic 'best-selling' novel of the invasion of Europe by the Russian and Warsaw Pact armed forces seen through the eyes of the fighting men on the ground. In particular it tells the story of the crew of Bravo Two, a Chieftain main battle tank of the British 4th Armoured Division, and also that of the crew of 'Utah', an American Abrams of the 5th United States Force, as both units face the onslaught of the Soviet armour onto the killing zones of the German Plain. 'Chieftains' has been rated the best-ever novel of tank warfare. General Sir John Hackett who reviewed it, stated that it was 'a dramatic and authentic account'. Impeccably researched at military bases in the UK and Europe, and with the assistance of the British Ministry of Defense, Allied forces armoured personnel and ex-servicemen with battle experiences in various theatres of war, 'Chieftains' was written during the darkest and most tense period of the 'Cold War' between East and West. The book brutally shows what could have happened as a Third World War began.
