Within these 80 pages the reader will find a well-written history of the middle period of Centurion service with Israel, that is, an explanation of the Shot Kal upgrade package and a portion of the Centurion Shot Kal Alef's service during the Yom Kippur War itself. Initially the Shot Kal upgrade package was far more extensive than imagined and included, among other things, a new diesel power plant, additional fuel tanks, and the replacement of the original 20 pound main gun with the more powerful British 105 mm L7 gun The book contains, 74 period black and white photographs that are well-produced throughout the text in a format reminiscent of that found in Concord's AFV books. Among these photographs are many detailing the upgrade effort and the actions of the 7th Brigade on the Golan Heights.
