Amazon.com description: Product Description:
  • Hundreds of photos, including many never published before with riveting accounts of armored warfare in World War II
  • Compares the Sherman to other tanks, including the Panther and Tiger
  • Author is a world-renowned expert on the Sherman tank and American armor

    Some tank crews referred to the American M4 Sherman tank as a "death trap." Others, like Gen. George Patton, believed that the Sherman helped win World War II. So which was it: death trap or war winner? Armor expert Steven Zaloga answers that question by recounting the Sherman's combat history. Focusing on Northwest Europe (but also including a chapter on the Pacific), Zaloga follows the Sherman into action on D-Day, among the Normandy hedgerows, during Patton?s race across France, in the great tank battle at Arracourt in September 1944, at the Battle of the Bulge, across the Rhine, and in the Ruhr pocket in 1945.
