The Cromwell, official name Cruiser Tank MkVIII, was one of the most successful British tanks of the Second World War. Named after the English Civil War leader Oliver Cromwell, the tank proved to be an adept and rugged fighting machine and served until the end of the war.
The Cromwell first saw action in June 1944 as the tank that equipped the reconnaissance regiments of the Royal Armoured Corps. The Cromwell crews in North-West Europe succeeded in outflanking the heavier and more sluggish German tanks with superior speed, manoeuvrability and reliability.
