Format: Paperback
A great book for its time, this Squadron/Signal book was published in 1989, so it is dated. That's why I rated it 3 stars. There is a brief history of the development of the M-1, great B&W photos of the early M-1's in Germany. The photos show the tank as it was everything from the motor pools, tank ranges, road marches, gunnery exercises, in all weather, muddy, engines being replaced. Good photos of the inside of the tank.

The M-1, M-1A1 versions are here. Of course, there can be nothing of the Gulf wars which is where the M-1 proved its critics wrong. In addition to the many line drawings, there are a few pages covering engineer, recovery vehicles and the Korean version of the M-1. Two pages of color plates to show the camouflage schemes used during the 1980's.

If Squadron were to update this book, I'd buy that version. This would be good for those who want to model the early versions of the M-1, armor buffs, old tankers who want a quick trip down memory lane.
