A Survey of Tank Warfare in Europe from 6 June to 12 August 1944
This is a complete reissue (not a facsimile) of British Army Operational Research Group (AORG) Memorandum No. C6 originally issued in very limited quantities in 1952. This work was originally prepared and distributed in May 1952 in a typewritten mimeographed limited edition (the copy from which this edition was prepared was Number 37).

This study was undertaken in order to examine the supposition that weight of numbers was the deciding factor in tank battles after 1942.

Coverage begins with the historical aspect of the armored fighting in Normandy, followed by an analysis of tank actions, and applies the results to possible future war with the Soviets.
