The US Tank Destroyer program was introduced as a cost-effective way of dealing with German armour. As opposed to most of the other combatant powers of WWII, the US did not want to use its tank battalions to confront opposing armour. Rather, specialised tank destroyer battalions, both towed and self-propelled, were raised to do the job. This book covers, among others, such types as the M18 Hellcat, the M3 / M5 Stuart Light Tank and the M4 Sherman and is packed with information useful to modellers of all standards.
