Book Description:
The Staghound was a unique World War II armored vehicle designed and manufactured in the US, but intended solely for the British army. This book examines the development of this category of armored cars and offers a detailed analysis of the extensive combat use of the Staghound in British service as well as in the service of other Allied countries including Canada, New Zealand and Poland. Usually armed with a 37mm gun, it weighed 12 tons and could reach speeds of 55mph carrying a crew of five. Since its combat debut in Italy in 1943 until the end of the war it had performed particularly valuable service in a reconnaissance role where its speed and armor ensured that it was able to extricate itself from trouble as required without additional support. The book also includes a brief description of post war use from NATO countries including Denmark to far off battlefields such as Lebanon providing a comprehensive and accessible coverage of a vehicle that is particularly popular with private collectors.
