Another great Haynes manual for those interested in tanks, planes, ships, etc. Unless you're an expert on the Sherman already, you will definitely find some interesting info and pictures in this manual. I've knocked off a star as I dont think theres quite as much technical info as there is in the Haynes Tiger manual, which is surprising as there are dozens more Shermans in existence than Tigers! But still thoroughly recommended. I'm slowly building a collection of these manuals and I hope there will be more armour manuals in the future.

A lot of very good stuff in this, definitely one of the best of this series from Haynes. Nothing too critical actually missing, but I feel a little lacking in depth and some details to earn five stars. However, unquestionably good value for money, and well illustrated.

I don't like phrases like "The world's most iconic tank", because others have at least equal claim. Also, the fact that, as a tank,, the Sherman was and is, pretty rotten. Its value was that it was made in huge quantities and was therefore adapted to many roles. For me, I'd have to pick as "most iconic" something I thought technically good, something that affected tank evolution, a tank better in a one-on one battle, even though I know that the War was won as much-if not more-by mass production than quality, so my assertion is in no way inconsistent with my title, but probably going to bring hate mail nonetheless.

Worth a place on anyone's shelf.

Perhaps more of the same in some respects but that's my problem because I already possess quite a few books on this very subject.
Never mind me, for anyone interested in the Sherman this is I think one of the better books.

A useful book for anyone interested in the history, development, manufacture and different models of the Sherman. For various reasons I didn't find it as good as the excellent equivalent book about the Tiger tank. Many good photos and illustrations, but I felt a few important omissions as well - I would have liked to see a more detailed illustration of the standard (VVSS) suspension, and similarly a more detailed and labelled cutaway diagram of the whole tank.

I found this to be a comprehensive and insightful publication for those interested in the Sherman Tank. There is plenty of technical and manufacturing info and I thought the tables of variant type and engine/armour/gun options a great reference source. There are plenty of period and other photographs which I found really handy for a Sherman model project I was working on. It also adds a lot of details and background to all the Sherman photos I have taken around the world over the years. It is written in an easy to read style and is well structured. You might also want to look at the Sherman minutia website as well.
