Weren't the Czech. the only ones (aside from a few with the commandos) to have Centaurs in Normandy, and not Cromwells?
From what I heard the only versions of the centaur to see action in Normandy were the specialist vehicles such as the 95mm CS version. From what I was told/read, they had cromwell mkIVs VII and VIIIs, fireflys and Sherman OP's and Stuart VI's as their tank force when sent to the Falaise on august 30th when they arrived in France.
Maybe the person was confused between centaur and cromwell due to really the big diff being engine so looking the same but alot of the other stuff i have quick looked at say cromwell too.
Sadly i dont have the funds to buy any books so cant go beyond free material and a quick glance.
