294 ALLIED TANKS IN NORMANDT 1944
Explains the qualities, strengths, and weakness of the major British and US tank types as well as associated Allied units in Normandy including the Canadians, Poles, and French, and how they fought. Discusses the organization and equipment of the units, providing thumbnail sketches of organization and doctrine as well as statistical data on the types and categories of AFVs that saw action.
Often outgunned by the German Panzers, and fighting in the close confines of bocage country, the Allied tanks nevertheless managed to break out of Normandy and begin the liberation of Europe. It was a battle that was dominated by the Americans' legendary Sherman, but also saw a wide and complex range of armour committed to battle across the many armies involved, from British Churchills and special-purpose 'Funnies' to the Canadians' Ram tank.
