Sherman Tank: History * Design * Specifications * Combat Performance (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 days.


The first Medium Tank M4 `General Sherman' tanks rolled off the production line in February 1942, remained in production for the rest of World War II and was still in service two decades later. Almost unwittingly it was the most important weapon the U.S. Army deployed on the land battlefield and production exceeded 49,000, but it also had glaring faults and weaknesses. Sherman Tank follows the Sherman's development and numerous modifications, telling the story of this tank not just through technical data but also in the words of the soldiers who fought in it. Detailed appendices provide vehicle specifications and manufacturing details, while comparative tables allow the reader to make at-a-glance assessments of how the Sherman matched up to its rivals on both sides.

Authoritatively written and featuring 70 colour and black-&-white photographs, fully annotated colour cutaway and three-view profile artworks, Sherman Tank tells the story of one of World War II's most important tanks.
