Not the most heavily armored tank, tall, ungainly, with firepower that could not match the German tanks - but by sheer numbers and reliability, the M4 Sherman became the winning workhorse of World War II. An inside view of Sherman tanks is given by military personnel who experienced the Sherman first-hand in and out of combat. With diagrams and cut-away illustrations, descriptions of components, and close-up first-hand accounts of the Sherman's mechanical make-up, this book gives readers an unprecedented insight into the tank that embodies sheer reliability, pluck, and dogged power.
