Synopses & Reviews
Unwilling to deploy its armor battalions to stave off opposing tanks, America raised a number of specialized tank destroyer battalions, both towed and self propelled, that could take on Germany's AFVs. This book offers a guide to modelling the M18 Hellcat, the M3/M5 Stuart Light Tank, the M4 Sherman and more, and will be valuable for modellers of all abilities.
