ALLIED TANKS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR: Images of War
A full inventory of the tanks developed and deployed by the Allied armies during WWII against Nazi Germany and her Axis partners. 250 color & black and white images.
There were four categories of tank: Light, Medium, Heavy and Super Heavy. Combat experience proved Light tanks (such as the Stuart and T-26) to be ineffective. Medium tanks (the US M4 series, named Sherman by the British, and Russian T-34) soon dominated with their fire power, protection and mobility.
The later stages of the War required the Allies to answer the Axis Panther and Tiger tanks with up-gunned and up-armored second generation M4s, T-34-85s and the Sherman Firefly. Totally new heavy tanks such as the M-26, Pershing, Soviet KV-1 series and the British Centurion only saw action in the final months. Also includes a few super heavy tanks such as the French Char 2C and the TOG.
