Wow, finally, a book on one of my favorite tanks! The Churchill is an interesting piece of equipment for sure, and many US Modelers are unaware of the role it played in supporting US operations in Normandy and the Cotentin Penninsula. The 79th Armored Division dispatched a Company of Crocodiles to support the US 8th ID Capture of Brest. Upon seeing the Crocodiles at work, many of the German defenders of Brest just surrendered. There is an operational Churchill Crocodile (sans fuel trailer) at Paul Allen's Flying Heritage/Combat Armor Museum at Paine Field near Everett WA, close to where I live. What a beast it is! Sure wish I'd had this Hayne's guide when I was building an interior for my Tamiya Churchill Crocodile! Thanks for posting this Darren!

This looks to me like a reprint in a different format of the Haynes workshop manual published in 2013
