Jim Rae reviews French 2nd Armored Division, a new book from the Polish publisher Model Centrum Progres covering a formation which is well-documented in French archives, but somewhat overlooked amongst English language publishers.

A comment on this other thread got me to look at this review. French armor should get more consideration, not just the Char B1 bis, either. I am putting this on my wish list, thanks, Jim!

I just tried to order this one and the 6th South African division book from the publisher's wesbite. I think I'm too computer challenged. That said, a good primer on the 2D.B. is well overdue I'm very much looking forward to this one .

What's really cool is a book review (this book's review) is running second on the "most read" review list for the first time in I don't know when. It's catching up to #1 and might just go into the lead eventually!

Well, unfortunately there seems to be a bug in the Page View program, so, it's somewhat higher (well, about 8 times higher) than it should be...

Brilliant though the Review undoubtedly is it isn't THAT popular, more's the pity...
