Some of the pictures were new to me, and I liked the author picking up U.S. estimates about certain facets of the vehicle that are kept more closely under wraps by the IDF (like about the number of Merkavas destroyed in combat). Also, the few pages devoted to the history of IDF armor helped to put the Merkava into context.
But parts of the book did sound at times, as another reviewer noted, like a sales brochure. I know the IDF tankers love the vehicle (I agree from everything that I have read... it is a world-class MBT), but I'd rather hear it in their words.
Also, I think the part about the M256 main gun (produced in the U.S. under license from Rheinmetal in Germany) being discarded in favor of an "indigenous" design for the Mk III is a bit off. I'd always read that it was an indigenously produced, licensed version of the Rheinmetal gun, not an entirely Israeli design from breech block to barrel tip.

This book covers well the history of the Merkava. The introduction has a summary of many years of history of the IDF armoured forces which led to the development of this tank.
The book includes lots of photos of the Merkava I, II and III, from several angles and close-ups.
However, no colour photos are included. Information is rather sparse and tends to be a bit superlative. There is little information about the tank interior.
A comparison table of the three models is provided, but physical dimensions, forward and reverse speed, vertical obstacle clearing, etc. are missing (they are only mentioned for the Merkava II). Also it would be good to see a comparison against western and eastern tanks (specially the T-72).

I'd been waiting forever for this title, and when it came out I was pleased to see it 1) maintained the overall quality of the New Vanguard releases and 2) had some pix I hadn't seen before but was disappointed that 1)it seemed to have been written from an Israeli Arms brochure and 2) lacked any technical data of note. Worthy but hollow.

What makes the Merkava unique in modern MBTs is the engine in front approach to crew protection. This means that there is access via a hatch in the rear of the vehicle, yet there one interior drawing (cut away) is not detailed enough to gain a real appreciation of what the designers accomplished.
Overall, this book is ok for a modeler, but I would want to see more of the interior of this tank.
