This book tells the extraordinary story of the M4 Sherman tank in the Pacific theater of operations during World War 2. Through carefully selected and unpublished photographs, you will discover the extraordinary metamorphosis of the famous American tank, its first disastrous engagement on "Bloody Atoll" Tarawa, in the island of Okinawa, the last bastion of the Rising Sun. The terrible experience of fire against an enemy, as brave as fanatical, required Americans to adapt and transform the Sherman to resist and win the war. Nearly 350 photos, thirty specific profiles paired with contemporary photographs and maps of each of the battles, this richly illustrated book is of high visual value for all lovers of the Sherman tank. THIS BOOK IS IN ENGLISH.
