Synopses & Reviews
Using the superb photography of the British wartime Army Film and Photographic Unit, Gavin Birch has brought together an unrivalled selection of images from every campaign where the Sherman Tank was in action. These include the Eighth Army's victories in North Africa and Italy and the Allied North West Europe campaign following D Day June 1944. As well as being a comprehensive record for the general military historian, this book will appeal strongly to the enthusiast, collector and modeller. Remarkable detail of the many variants' design and fitting is shown. Each photograph is clearly referenced making the task of ordering individual copies from the Imperial War Museum's formidable collection easier than ever.
