US Marine Corps Tank Crewman, 1941-45 by Kenneth W. Estes

Book Description

The ferocity of the Pacific war almost defied the available military technology. In this environment the evolving use of tanks by the US Marine Corps played a significant role; at the end of the Battle of Okinawa, Major General Lemuel Shepherd wrote in his report that 'if any one supporting arm can be singled out as having contributed more than any others during the progress of the campaign, the tank would certainly be selected.' This book traces the history of the US Marine Corps tank crewman, including the significant changes in doctrine, equipment, and organization that World War II brought, and his experience fighting in the Pacific theater.

Super-Heavy Tanks of World War II by Kenneth W. Estes Super-Heavy Tanks of World War II, Paperback (November 2014)

The super-heavy tanks of World War II are heirs to the siege machine tradition - a means of breaking the deadlock of ground combat. As a class of fighting vehicle, they began with the World War I concept of the search for a 'breakthrough' tank, designed to cross enemy lines. This book deals with these super-heavy tanks.

M103 Heavy Tank, 1950-74 by Kenneth W. Estes M103 Heavy Tank, 1950-74, Paperback (February 2013)

The T43 design represented the pinnacle of US Army tank engineering of the late 1940s. The heavy tank proved fairly popular with its crews, who above all respected the powerful armament it carried. The outbreak of war in Korea brought a rush order in December 1950 which led to a complete production run of 300 vehicles.
