Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 32nd Army Tank Brigade was an armoured formation of the British Army during World War II. It was formed in Egypt in September 1941. The brigade HQ was sent to Tobruk to take command of all Royal Armoured Corps units stationed there. In June 1942, a composite brigade was formed in Tobruk with surviving elements of the 1st Army Tank Brigade, which surrendered on 22 June after the fall of Tobruk. The British Army during the Second World War was, in 1939, a volunteer army, that introduced limited conscription in early 1939, and full conscription shortly after the declaration of war with Germany. During the early years of the war, the army suffered defeat in almost every theatre in which it was deployed. With mass conscription, the expansion of the army was reflected in the formation of larger armies and army groups. From 1943, the larger and better equipped British Army hardly suffered a strategic defeat.show more
