Les Automitrailleuses De Reconnaissance Tome 1 L Amr 33 Renault (FRENCH TEXT) (OUT OF PRINT)
At the outbreak of WWII, the French cavalry deployed a wide number of AFVs that would be the first and the last to fight, according to the great traditions of the branch of service. In this first volume, the emphasis is put on the Renault VM light cavalry tank which had received the official confusing name of automitrailleuse de reconnaissance (AMR), i.e. recce armoued car. In fact, it was a proper tank, although very light and ill-armed (a single 7.5 mm machinegun), but fast and agile, as should be any cavalry combat vehicle. The AMRs fought gallantly in May 1940.
