The story of the tanks and other armoured vehicles used by the armed forces of the Republic of Ireland (Eire), from independence to the present day. Although the Irish have never used large numbers of armoured vehicles, they have employed a wide and eclectic variety of tanks and armoured cars, from British WW1 vehicles through to the Swedish armoured cars currently in service. This book describes the acquisition and operational use of all such AFVs by the Irish, and includes scale plans of all major types plus details of colour schemes and markings.
