Description

This book tells the extraordinary story of the M4 Sherman tank in the Pacific theatre of operations during World War 2. Through carefully selected and unpublished photographs, you will discover the extraordinary metamorphosis of the famous American tank, its first disastrous engagement on "Bloody Atoll" Tarawa, in the island of Okinawa, the last bastion of the Rising Sun. The terrible experience of fire against an enemy, as brave as fanatical, required Americans to adapt and transform the Sherman to resist and win the war. Nearly 350 photos, thirty specific profiles paired with contemporary photographs and maps of each of the battles, this richly illustrated book is of high visual value for all lovers of the Sherman tank.

Review quote

Any fan of the Sherman tank will want to get this one onto their bookshelf I have no doubt, and historians of the Pacific War will find plenty of detail to interest them, and see how successful the Sherman proved to be in a theater of war where many thought conditions to be unsuitable for their operation. This books is ample evidence of how wrong that was. For the modellers, the sheer number of excellent clear pictures, coupled with the colour profiles, will find this a first class reference for so many little details, mostly added in the field rather than in the factory. * Military Modelling.com 22/07/2015 *
