Michael Green has done a really good job at updating some of the older books on the M-1 Abrams tank. There are tons of excellent color photos, statistics, facts, dates about each variant of the M-1. At first you think this is going to be just a great photo book, but as you read the text, you are pleasantly surprised.

Green gives a detailed background of the history of the M-1, its development and deployment. The tank is described, chassis, hull, interior, fire control system, weapons, tanks in action in the desert and Europe. Line drawings and photos of each are provided to help the reader. Green also gives a lot of detail that help someone who is not a tanker understand some of the concepts of the tactics, use of the tank in battle and the duties of tankers.

Along the way, there are quotes from tankers past & present, those who helped create what has become the best tank in the World. Green shows how far tanks have come by comparing the M-1 to the first WW1 tank. Quite a contrast! The text can bog down sometimes when dealing with the highly technical aspects of main gun ammo or other aspects of the technology involved, but it's accurate and if you've never been exposed to it before, can give you a crash course in Armor Warfare.

I was lucky enough to call these beasts my ride from 83-86. It's really great to see the latest developments and advances they are making to the M-1. An excellent book on an excellent tank named after an excellent General. Highly recommended for all tankers, armor buffs, and modelers too.

Best book about the M1 Abrams so far. Lots of neato pictures and details about the USA's main battle tank.
