Excellent insight to armored warfare,
By A Customer
This review is from: Death Traps: The Survival of an American Armored Division in World War II (Hardcover)
From reading this book I felt that Mr. Cooper provided little known facts regarding the entire spectrum of armored warfare. By relating his experience as an Ordance Officer in the United States Army during WWII, Mr. Cooper describes the organization, development, and deployment strategies of armored divisions from Normandy to the outskirts of Berlin. Cooper also details the design and development of the M-4 Sherman Tank, which was unfortunately dictated by politics. The inferiority of the Sherman Tank as compared to the German Panzers was also outlined in detail. Mr. Cooper also discusses little known facts regarding the developmnet of the M-26 Pershing and "Super Pershing". I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in WWII.
