THE TANKS: THE HISTORY OF THE ROYAL TANK REGIMENT 1976-2017

 by Charles Messenger





The Royal Tank Regiment celebrates its centenary in 2017. This fourth volume of the Regiment’s history begins in the midst of the Cold War, with the four RTR regiments mainly based in Germany. They experienced the implementation of General Sir Nigel Bagnall’s revolutionary new concept for the defence of the NATO Central Region. The Troubles in Northern Ireland were also at the height and the RTR served there on numerous occasions. Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait resulted in the First Gulf War, in which the Regiment played its part in many ways. Then came the horrors of the civil war in former Yugoslavia, operating tanks in Kosovo. The RTR was at the forefront of the assault on Basrah in the 2nd Gulf War and thereafter served a number of tours in Iraq. The British Army was also heavily committed to Afghanistan and the Regiment would spend the next five years deployed on Operation Herrick. As in Iraq, it carried out a variety of missions and in many different types of vehicle.
