Thunderbolt: General Creighton Abrams and the Army of His Times
1.  Thunderbolt: General Creighton Abrams and the Army of His Times by Lewis Sorley
The list author says:
  "Fantastic book about the best US Tanker ever - even better than Patton? Yup. This guy was a Battalion Commander in WW2. Had 7 Sherman tanks knocked out from him. His unit led the breakthrough to Bastonge & he later went on to be Chief of Staff of the Army. His influence led to the M-1 tank which is aptly named after him."
