Sherman Tank

By Roger Ford (Author), Roger Ford (Author)


Format Paperback

Authoritatively written, and complete with detailed art and specifications, Sherman Tank tells the story of one of World War II’s most important weapons.
The first Medium Tank M4 “General Sherman” tanks rolled off the production line in February 1942, remained in production for the rest of World War II, and were still in service two decades later. Almost unwittingly it became the most important weapon the US Army deployed on the land battlefield. Production exceeded 49,000, but it also had glaring weaknesses. Sherman Tank follows the weapon’s development and numerous modifications, telling its story through both technical data and the words of the soldiers who fought in it. In addition to fully annotated color cutaway and three-view profile artworks, detailed appendices provide vehicle specifications and manufacturing details, while comparative tables allow for at-a-glance assessments of how the Sherman matched up to its rivals on both sides.

Roger Fordis a military writer who has written for The Specialists, Combat and Survival, Ships and the Sea, and numerous publications. He was consultant for the bestselling The World’s Great Small Arms and The Ultimate Weaponry.
