The 712th Tank Battalion landed in Normandy on June 28, 1944, and spent 311 days in combat. Aaron Elson, whose father served with the battalion, began preserving the stories of its veterans after attending a reunion in 1987. These interviews, with six veterans on 11 CDs, give a powerful picture of life in combat as a tanker during World War II, as well as the veterans' lives before and after the war.

First a warning, the sound quality is not the best as many of these interviews were taped at reunions and private homes. Nothing bad enough to annoy though. Some of it even provides interesting back ground noise making it feel less of an interview and more hearing stories from a grandfather.
Back to the positives. These contain stories from before, training, fighting, and after the war. Giving a broad view of the times and people. The stories change from person to person sometimes detailing the same events from different perspectives.
Several stories involve the horse cavalry as it was transformed into an armored force.
All in all you'll never hear the like again. Well worth the price.
