By Gerald P. Owens on June 30, 2001
Format: Hardcover
If you need an illustrated history of the Sherman Tank, and have absolutely no other resources at hand, this book is possibly better than nothing. However, it is full of generalizations and some outright errors, and the whole thing seems to have been thrown together rather quickly. A far better choice would be any of Steven J. Zaloga's books published by Osprey and Concord or either Squadron-Signal publication ("Sherman in Action" or "Sherman Walkaround"). Best of all is Richard Hunnicutt's enormous work "Sherman: A History of the American Medium Tank." Though many would balk at the price, it is by far the best work available, with thousands of photos and multiview 1:48th scale drawings by D.P. Dyer of every Sherman subtype. However, it is hard to find at the moment.
Steven J. Zaloga's new book , "Armored Thunderbolt: The U.S. Army Sherman in World War II" is an excellent and comprehensive book on the vehicle's development and operations, with 400 photos (though only a handful of drawings). It is also an excellent value for money.

This book tells the story of the American made Sherman Tank. It begins with the early influences that lead up to the development and manufacture of the tank. Subsequent chapters cover the Sherman in action, variants of the tank such as self propelled artillery and a fairly complete history up to its post war use by Isreal. The photos and graphics are good. The author has done a good job of covering the subject without getting bogged down in the myriad of details of this vast subject. For most military enthusiasts this book should enough detail to provide a complete understanding of the tank.
I'd recommend this book for a reader looking for a solid, well balanced history of the Sherman Tank.

The book was well written and factual, to the best of my knowledge. The illustrations are good and I have used the information in my modelling.
