Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) George Forty, OBE, FMA, is a well-known author specializing in armoured warfare. He served for 32 years in the Royal Tank Regiment, seeing active service first in Korea. Ten years later he commanded an armoured reconnaissance squadron on operations in Aden, the Persian Gulf and Borneo. George Forty left the Army in 1975 to pursue a writing career, and in 1981 was appointed Director and Curator of the world-famous Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset, England. During the next 12 years he tripled the size of the museum, modernized it and turned it into one of the foremost military museums in Europe. Shortly after retiring from the museum in 1993, George Forty was made a Fellow of the Museums Association (FMA) and was awarded an OBE in the 1994 New Year's Honours List.
