M4 Sherman Tanks: The Illustrated History of America's Most Iconic Fighting Vehicles

By MICHAEL E. HASKEW

Please join us Thursday evening, 4 August 2016 in the D-Day, Normandy France, and Europe group. This new release giveaway (ten copies) is sponsored by our good friend Nichole Schiele with Zenith Press and Quarto Publishing.

From Zenith Press: "Seventy-five years ago the most quintessentially American tank was built: the M4 Sherman, which featured heavily in the Allies' World War II victory and later in films such as "Fury," starring Brad Pitt.

Seventy-five years after it first rumbled into service, the M4 Sherman remains the most quintessentially American tank ever conceived. What the E-unit locomotive is to railroading, what the Corvette is to sports cars, the Sherman tank is to armored military vehicles—a classic example of American ingenuity and design answering a pressing need or desire.

M4 Sherman Tanks is the definitive illustrated history of the Sherman tank, covering the entire scope of its development, manufacture, service, armaments, turrets, tracks, drivetrains, and its many variants. The book begins with the M4's evolution from the M3 and M2 tanks and continues through the rapid production of more than fifty-three thousand units in 1942 and 1943 and the tank's further service among more than fifty nations after World War II."
