Just got this book today.
Written by Les Freathy and V J Vollert, perhaps the best book on the subject of British and Commonwealth softskins.
Published by Tankograd it might seem a tad pricey at £35 less a penny, by wow it is packed with info and a load of NEW photographs of the vehicles. No restorations, but period shots.
Useful histories and data, plus some really great variants.
If you have an interest in British soft-skins, then this is the book for you.
All the major and minor manufacturers in alphabetical order.
I have no association with the publisher, but know Les Freathy from help he has given me in the past.

This book was available from two sellers at Tenkfest at Bovington this weekend. Bought a copy, looks v good indeed, and hoping I don't get hooked on British trucks; the last thing I need is another interest!. Got enough tank kits in boxes as it is.
For me, the best thing at Tankfest was the Churchill IV - it fairly raced around the arena with not a care in the world!.
Lots of retail opportunities too. Spent way too much.
Most amusing sight was the dealer selling WW2 action dolls. Alongside 'Helmut" the panzergrenadier were at least four Hitler dolls as well as Himmler, Heydrich, and Goebbels. And you can buy a Goebbels desk set for your Planning the Final Solution scenario!!!. Hilarious; does anyone admit to collecting these things?.
