This story came out in “War Picture Library” issue 25 (September, 1959), Fleetway Publications Ltd.

It tells the story of a British tank and its crew during the Second World War as they fight in the desert of North Africa, the Italian campaign, and in French territories. The tank is a MK IV, nicknamed by the men as “Goliath” for its mammoth proportions and the thickness of its shell (not to be confused with the German “Goliath” tank which was much smaller).
