DeJohn. Culled from a diverse collection of sources — including declassified documents, period propaganda, and old photo archives — this volume argues that, despite ultimately attaining victory over German tanks, American armor was at a crippling disadvantage throughout the war. Go behind the scenes to see high-level political and military bureaucracy at work, preventing the U.S. from fielding a tough enough tank to consistently battle Nazi Tigers and Panthers. More than 60,000 soldier deaths, the author argues, could've been prevented had they had a more appropriate tank. 456 pages, 557 color and B&W photos, 9"x 12", hardcover.
