Sherman: N4 Medium Tank. Book by John Christopher. Amberley Armor 1. Once described as the worst tank that ever won a war it was built in the United States by car factories, railway works and vast purpose-built factories. The M4 Sherman saw service in all theaters of the Second World War as well as in later conflicts in Korea and Israel. It came in many variants. The British gave it a bigger gun, they made 'funnies' that could throw flames or swim ashore and wade rivers or ditches, they were used to lay bridges, clear minefields and even launch rockets. Many Sherman's were sold overseas to countries such as Uganda, Italy, Paraguay, Argentina and Mexico. John Christopher tells the story of the M4 Sherman, using both new and archive images to show the most famous tank in the world in all its guises and variants. Over 100 color and black/white photos; 96 pages.
