This carefully assembled and well-researched book is bound to enthuse modelers and military buffs alike, for that's precisely the audience the author had in mind when compiling this volume. The book opens with a precis of the Germany tank industry before and during the war. This summary describes how the nation's arms industry was resurrected in the s, and how it sought to provide the materiel and vehicles needed to feed Germany's insatiable war machine. Despite many restrictions and hurdles, German industry did surprisingly well in producing such a wide range of armored fighting vehicles up till the end of the war.
These efforts are reflected in a fascinating array of photos showing military vehicles in action. There are also artillery pieces and a number of half-tracks featured within the covers. Readers will find very useful the highly detailed captions that accompany each picture. De Sisto continues his longstanding collaboration with accomplished illustrator Laurent Lecocq. In the center of the book are 16 color plates by Lecocq, and these offer sample camouflage schemes and markings. This well-researched book is a worthy companion to the six previous Panzer Vor! The Eighth Army, advancing along the Adriatic coast and the Fifth Army in the mountains north of Florence penetrated this strong German defensive belt between 25 August and the end of September.
Yet the Allied campaign stalled due to a lethal combination of supply and manpower shortages, the early onset of winter and the rugged terrain favoring the German defenders. Includes black and white illustrations. Though not the first tank to go into battle against the Axis in World War II, the Valentine has the distinction of having the highest production numbers of any wartime British tank, and arguably the most variations.
A total of 8, Valentines were produced in no fewer than 11 major variations - from Mark I to Mark XI - along with Duplex Drive and other specialized versions. Among the key differences between the various Marks were the engines. Early versions of the vehicle were equipped with gasoline engines, while a Diesel engine powered the later Marks.
The turret also saw development during the career of the Valentine, with later models receiving a more elongated turret. From that date until late , the Valentine was Britain's primary Infantry Tank. They took part in combat in both the European and Pacific Theaters, and after the war continued to serve several British Commonwealth armies as late as the s. Illustrated with photographs, plus color profiles and detailed line drawings. Also includes extensive walk around photos.

Part of the 'Extended' Visual History format, this page book is packed with large, clear images of Germany's well-known and most widely-used armored troop transport and weapons platform. Coverage includes the Sd. Kfz Ausf A; Sd. Kfz Ausf B; Sd. Kfz Ausf C; Sd. The ideal reference for anyone building models or painting miniatures.
Army's Vietnam-Era Wheeled Escort Platforms : Visual History Born out of the need for convoy protection during the escalation of combat in , the Vietnam-era gun trucks are some of the most interesting military vehicles fielded during the 20th century. Offers a detailed description of the truck platforms and designs, giving the reader a basic primer of the trucks prior to modification.
This is followed by a lengthy illustrated description of the many weapons systems used, from small arms to the. Coverage of the trucks in action follows and is composed of many never before seen photos, many of which are full page in size and in color. From the lightly armored jeeps to the 5-ton behemoths mounting an entire APC in their beds, all the types are showcased.
Gun trucks fielded by transportation, engineer and air defense artillery units are detailed. The book completes its narrative with a comprehensive photo essay of the world's only surviving gun truck now on display at the US Army Transportation Museum. Manufacturers and engineers became acquainted with the creation of modern fully tracked combat vehicles and soldiers were familiarized with the driving, maintenance, logistics entailed by fielding an armored force.
Once war began, not only did these experiences prove invaluable, the tanks themselves, armed only with twin machine guns, nevertheless proved formidable weapons against ill-prepared enemies. Spread through hardbound pages, over photos document all variations of this, the cornerstone upon which Germany's famed panzer force was built.
As a special bonus, this title includes a page-color walk around section featuring very rare examples of the Panzer IA, B and F. Part 2 picks up the story with the successor to the Pacific; the magnificent ton M tractor. Also covered is the rare and unusual M tractor with service pictures from its brief career. Photo coverage includes lavish color shots of the M in Vietnam, as well during development and testing.
Travel back to the early years of the war to see the first militarized production models with the exciting images of the vehicle's interior, engine, and undercarriage featured in this illustrated guide. This pictorial exploration of the armored truck - which features numerous full-color photos, arranged chronologically, in combat zones like Iraq and Afghanistan - traces its origin, analyzes its battlefield performance, and examines its many variants including the M, MA1, M, M, and the massive M wrecker.
Designed and initially produced under the code name of horsepower Farm Tractor, owing to the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles, the Panzer II remained in production, and in the field, well after it had been surpassed by better engineered, more heavily armed and armored vehicles, and indeed played a key part in the early victories achieved by the Blitzkrieg. Almost scarce wartime photos, illuminated by detailed captions, fill the pages of this hardbound volume. The major tasks of these units were mopping-up for the following troops and employment as an advance guard, surprise raid-like attacks against an opponent's flanks and rear, as well as pursuit of the opponent.
A wide variety of machines were deployed for these tasks, both impressed and adapted civilian models, as well as variety of purpose-built military motorcycles. This distinctive reference combines rare vintage photographs with photos of superbly restored German WWII motorcycles. Only the very finest examples of these motorcycles were sought out for inclusion in this title. This force would be armed with specialized weapons.
While the army's primary antitank weapons of the late s were 37mm towed anti-tank guns, these were soon deemed to be inadequate against enemy armor. Accordingly, the quest for larger weapons began, as did the desire for a self-propelled antitank gun, or Gun Motor Carriage. In the same manner, half-tracks were fitted with cannon, yielding the M3 75mm Gun Motor Carriage.
But, the quest was on to create a specialized and ideal tank destroyer, utilizing a tank chassis as the basis. By January of a prototype was in the works to mount the weapon in an open topped turret on the chassis of the twin GM Diesel-powered M4A2 Sherman Medium tank. After some months of development a design was finalized for a vehicle sharing the suspension, lower hull, and engine with the M4A2 but with an upper hull made up from thinner, but sloping, armored plate.
Initially designated T35E1, when the design was standardized it was redesignated M In addition to the 6,plus Diesel-powered M10 tank destroyers, a further 1, M10A1 vehicles were built, these being driven by Ford GAA gasoline engines. While the 3-inch weapon of the M10 was superior to that found on earlier U. The British addressed this by rearming some of the 1, M10s that they received with the superb Ordnance Quick Firing pounder antitank gun.
These vehicles were designated by the British as pdr. SP M10 Mark 1c. After the war the name Achilles was given these vehicles. As such, this type was key to launching the bomber into aviation super-stardom. Explore this famed aircraft inside and out through this page, soft-bound volume featuring 80 pages of vintage photos, both color and black and white, along with 40 pages of photos of a preserved example, illustrating the minutia of the BF inside and out.
Army's Half-track Vehicles -- Part Two Explore the development, production and deployment of America's heavily armed half-track variants. Illustrated with period photos and described in detail in the hard-bound pages of this volume are the myriad of half-track based mortar, howitzer and gun motor carriages ranging from the ubiquitous but uncelebrated M4 Mortar Carrier to the obscure twinmm Bofors-armed T68 to the acclaimed M16 antiaircraft vehicle, which armed with four.
Drawing heavily on obscure manufacturer documents and long-forgotten government records, this volume, when combined with Part 1, published in , is the only complete study of these vehicles. The Bradley Fighting Vehicle, made famous through extensive media coverage of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, is given an in-depth examination. Drawing on the lessons learned in Vietnam, the Bradley was built to provide a highly mobile platform from which infantry could be inserted into the battlefield, and from which the infantry could operate. Its use soon expanded to that of a scout vehicle with anti-tank capability.
Despite initial criticism from Congress, the Bradley proved itself very capable on the battlefield, destroying more Iraqi armored vehicles than did the famed Abrams tanks. This was the most successful and widely used example of American self-propelled artillery during WWII, with examples used by the US Army during the Korean war, and even serving Allied countries into the s. Coined the Priest due to its pulpit-like structure for the gun commander, this armored fighting vehicle would see action in North Africa, Italy, and the D-Day landings in Normandy and all the way to Germany.
Over photos, including many never before seen pictures from the GM archives. Most of the photographs are either full page 8x10 or half page with captions. Covers all variants, contracts, production information and more. The ability to rapidly ready heavy artillery for firing lead to the development of the M12 mm gun in , based on the M3 Medium Tank chassis. The trial vehicle, built by Rock Island Arsenal, was designated T6. To accommodate the large, rear mounted weapon - a French-made M mm gun, the engine was relocated forward to a position just behind the driving compartment.
A hydraulically operated spade mounted at the rear of the vehicle was lowered during firing to anchor the vehicle against the recoil. When retracted into the traveling position it provided a seat for two of the six crewmen. The production run was between September and March , with a total of units built.
Though a few were used by training units, most were placed in storage until February , when the first of 74 of them were shipped to Baldwin Locomotive Works to be improved based on further tests and usage in training. This work continued until May Includes over photos. Its tandem, contra-rotating rotors whirling above an aluminum fuselage punctuated by round porthole windows make this battlefield beast easily recognizable. Its status is owed to its long service life of more than 55 years. Experts predict its longevity will ultimately reach a century of service for heavy lift and use as a flying bus to deliver troops to the fight.
These vehicles, the M and the M, are both massive trucks, as you would expect for vehicles tasked with winching and hauling tanks and other armored vehicles and heavy equipment at highway speeds. On these pages we will explore the characteristics and use of these vehicles, but the photos on these pages do not fully show the size and robust construction of this equipment.

Illustrated with over black and white photos, color photos, and data tables. Donald Roebling's swamp rescue vehicle made the pages of Life Magazine in and caught the eye of the US military, in particular the Marine Corps brass. A contract for vehicles was issued in February , and so began the story of constant development and modification of the amphibious transport.

The photos, many previously unpublished, are augmented by seven line drawings. Illustrated with photographs. The first tank to boast a power plant with a 1,h. Conceived during the height of the Cold War, the Abrams has never been called upon to combat a global superpower, but nevertheless has seen extensive combat - particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan. This volume focuses on those combat experiences, in particular the victories and losses of the Abrams and crews on the front lines.
Illustrated with more than photographs plus detailed line drawings and a color profile. Introduced into US military service in the vehicle was built around the formidable Bushmaster 25mm chain gun mounted in the vehicle's two-man turret. The vehicle's three-man crew commander, gunner, driver was augmented by the ability to carry an infantry team of seven soldiers in the rear compartment protected by aluminum-alloy armored skin. Powered by a Cummins Diesel V-8 engine, the Bradley had tremendous automotive performance as well. The M2 Bradley - the original version of the vehicle - was the basis for the M3, also known as a Bradley, a scout vehicle designed for the Cavalry that has the same three-man crew.
These mostly-armored vehicles moved artillery and infantry on rough terrain, snow, and sand during World War II and Korea. Based on an adaptation of the White Scout Car, the US half-track vehicles of WWII combined the cross-country ability of a fully-tracked vehicle with the road performance of a medium truck. Variations of these vehicles included prime movers, armored personnel carriers, mortar carriers and a wide range of heavily armed variants. Both the Army and Marines took them into battle. They left their mark in Africa, Europe, Pacific islands and Korea.
When the US entered Vietnam, French halftracks were already in country. Before retirement, the Israeli Army listed about halftracks in March Argentina donated its final 24 M9s to Bolivia in Illustrated with more than photos, two color profiles, and 12 line drawings. The tank had excellent firepower and protection for its day, but early Panthers especially were plagued with mechanical issues, many of which were the result of the vehicles being rushed into production and into the field where they were manned by troops who lacked adequate training on the tanks - all in a feverish effort to stem the Soviet counteroffensive in Originally designed as a ton vehicle, with an engine and transmission sized accordingly, as typical of German tank designs, the Panther's weight soon began to climb, ultimately soaring to over 45 tons, which astoundingly is nearly the original design weight of the massive Tiger tank.
Introduced in , the mm-armed M60, and its variants, the M60A1 and M60A3, remained in production into , forming the backbone of the US armored force until it was supplanted by the M1 Abrams. In addition to the conventional cannon-armed versions of the M60, the M60A2 variant, sometimes dubbed 'the starship,' featured new departures in tank armament.
The M60A2 was armed with a mm projector, which could fire a conventional round with a fully combustible casing, or the MGM Shillelagh anti-tank missile. Packed with vintage color photos, 69 historic black-and-white images, by numerous fine line drawings, and a detailed data table, this page volume traces the history of America's iconic Cold War tank. These towed artillery weapons initially used the Mack NO 7.
With ranges of just over 14 miles for the gun, and This page book documents the development and deployment of these iconic weapons, as well as their prime movers and caissons through archival photos. Thearmor is capable of withstanding 7. Billed as invincible by Nazi propaganda, the massive, heavily armed and armored vehicle's mystique has continued to grow in the intervening years. Often forgotten were the ton behemoth's weaknesses, among which were a feeble power-train and suspension, an unquenchable thirst for precious fuel, and perhaps most crucial, the huge drain it imposed on Germany's manufacturing and engineering resources.

Only 1, Tiger Is were produced; so precious a resource was the Tiger that even severely damaged vehicles were remanufactured and returned to the front, some multiple times -- leading to a bewildering array of features over the tank's many variants. Today, only a half-dozen Tigers survive, leaving period photographs as a visual record of their victories and ultimate defeat. Illustrated with over vintage photographs, plus color profiles and detailed line drawings. Ten different companies contributed to the total output of 50, units produced in a myriad of variations.
Even after it went into serial production in the Sherman was subject to almost constant change and modification, based on lessons learned and needs perceived on the battlefield. The full story of the Sherman's exploits would fill several volumes, so this book focuses on the variants and sub-variants of the Shermans used by U.
The Shermans that rolled off the assembly lines in bore little resemblance to the M4s produced in , and this volume chronicles each major model of the Sherman everywhere the American soldier fought. Augmenting the nearly period photos, many of them in rare original color, are a host of exquisitely rendered line drawings illustrating the subtle variations in hull, turret, and weapons used on these famed armored fighting vehicles. Introduced in , the Renault FT and its American-built copy, the M, revolutionized tank design.
The vehicle's rotating turret, rear-engine, driver-forward design are characteristics of the most advanced tanks even today. This volume presents a careful study of the details and variations of this innovative vehicle, inside and out. Two-hundred thirty-seven photographs reveal the intimacies of no fewer than 14 of the finest surviving examples of these machines, preserved on three different continents. Examples feature a variety of paint schemes and camouflage patterns, the rounded and flat-plate castings for the rear of the vehicle and the tail skid and turret variations between the Renault FT and US-made M The driver's compartment in the interior of the tank is revealed, and close ups record the configuration of the engine.
Nine detailed line drawings supplement the photos and comprehensive captions. The Tank Destroyer men who crewed these vehicles used this speed and the Hellcat's 76mm high-velocity cannon to destroy German tanks; firing at the vulnerable areas of the enemy, and then racing away before coming under fire themselves. This volume examines the three principal variants of the Hellcat - the preproduction T70, early M18, and late M18, using ample visual reference to document these vehicles and their differences inside and out. Engine and drive train, driver's compartment, weapons and sighting systems, and stowage interior and exterior are all carefully presented.
Illustrated with color photographs, five color photographs, five line drawings, and four profiles. The M20, an offshoot of the M8 design, also played a number of active roles, in particular serving as a command car for high-ranking officers in forward areas. Some countries were still using the vehicles at the turn of the 21st century.
The M8 featured an open-top turret in which was mounted an M6 37mm cannon and coaxial Browning. The M20 replaced the turret with an open-topped parapet with a ring-mounted. When serving as a command car, the M20 packed additional radios and a folding map board. This lavishly illustrated volume is packed with contemporary and historic images that document not only the vehicles' configurations as produced, but also their appearance and activity in the field - the most unique collection of detailed photos of the Greyhound currently available.
Illustrated with over photographs, color profiles and detailed line drawings. The chassis of the artillery prime mover was adapted for use as a dump truck, a long-wheelbase truck to transport bridging equipment, and what would become the US Army's standard medium wrecker during WWII. The design of the Diamond T was so successful that it is widely recognized as the forerunner of the Army's post-WWII M-series trucks, which were utilized for 50 years.
For this book, the finest preserved examples of the classic Diamond T were sought out and extensively photographed, resulting in a volume packed with color photographs augmented by five period black-and-white photos. Initially fielded as the Ferdinand, the vehicles were further modified, and ultimately given a new - and apt - name: 'Elefant.

Further enhancing its utility to the enthusiast, full-color photos of the only surviving examples of each type illustrate the nuances of the construction and subsequent wartime modification of these giant tank killers. Also features 16 detailed line drawings as well as 15 masterful color profiles. One such vehicle, the M3 Gun Motor Carriage, was engineered to be a self-propelled antitank gun, melding the venerable 75mm A4 cannon - the famed 'French 75' - with the then-modern halftrack chassis built by Autocar.
The ever-increasing armor protection of German tanks combined with advances in fully-tracked tank destroyers led the Army to eschew the vehicle after limited use in Europe, notably in Sicily. The US Marines, however, used the vehicle in several campaigns in the Pacific, where the Marines brought the canon to bear on comparatively thin Japanese armor as well as bunkers. Chronicles the development and combat use of the M3 Gun Motor Carriage through vintage photos, as well as thoroughly documenting the only fully restored example in existence through an additional full-color images.
Deriving its name from its designer, Roger Gamaunt, the Gama Goat was initially a project of aerospace giant Chance-Vought. The all-wheel drive vehicle with steerable axles at each end and a flexible connection between the halves of its two-part body provide agile in testing. The flexibility gave the vehicle sure footing, and the body was designed to be amphibious. Sadly, the production M Gama Goats, assembled by Consolidated Diesel Electric, failed to live up to the promise of the test vehicles, leading to a Congressional investigation into both the vehicle performance and cost overruns.
Expensive modifications and retrofitting delayed the fielding of the vehicle. Troops using these engineering marvels either loved it, or hated it, with seemingly no middle ground. Ultimately, the vehicle saw use with US forces stateside, as well as in Germany and Korea, and the M was used during the invasion of Grenada.
This page volume chronicles the design, development, testing and field use of this iconic vehicle through vintage color and black-and-white photos, as well as showcasing the nuances of the remarkable design via 74 color photos of immaculately preserved examples.
