Seeing the original series of the Leopard 2 is very gratifying. I had the chance to see first-hand the early versions on maneuvers here at Camp Shilo in Manitoba, Canada in the early 1990s and remember thinking that here was a tank with considerable outgrowth and capability far in excess of its predecessor. Which I already been impressed with years earlier at the same training facility. Books like this are great for simply that reason alone; revisiting and reaffirming earlier memories.
