Sherman medium tank, 1942-1945 by Steve Zaloga( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 2000 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The M4 Sherman tank was the mainstay of the Western allies between 1942 and 1945. Fast and modern, it was better than most of the tanks Britain had to offer and the American Chief of Staff claimed in November 1943 that it had been widely hailed as 'the best tank on the battlefield today'. However, by the time of the Normandy invasion of June 1944 thios was not the case. The new heavy tanks being produced by the Germans were able to outclass the Sherman in both armour and armament. This title describes the development and operational use of the Sherman medium tabk throughourt World War II and beyond."--Back cover

Churchill infantry tank 1941-1951 by Bryan Perrett( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Churchill was undoubtedly one of the most successful British tanks of the Second World War. Although it suffered from being underarmed, a defect common to most British armoured vehicles of the period, it was nevertheless loved by its crews: its cross-country ability was unrivalled and it was less inclined to 'brew-up' from a direct hit than the Sherman. It was also adaptable. Modified Churchills played a crucial part in the initial D-Day landings and in the subsequent advance through France. Bryan Perrett traces the life of this slow-moving but effective and respected tank from its initial inception through till its eventual obsolescence
T-34/76 medium tank 1941-1945 by Steve Zaloga( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The T-34 was the most influential tank design of World War 2. When first introduced into combat in the summer of 1941, it represented a revolutionary leap forward in tank design. Its firepower, armour protection and mobility were superior to that of any other medium tank of the period. This superiority did not last long. While the T-34 underwent a series of incremental improvements during 1943, it was being surpassed by new German tank designs, most notably the Panther. This title traces the life of the original T-34 through all its difficulties to eventual success

M10 and M36 tank destroyers, 1942-53 by Steve Zaloga( )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The US Army had a unique tactical doctrine during World War II, placing the emphasis for tank fighting on its Tank Destroyer Command whose main early-war vehicle was the M10 3-inch Gun Motor Carriage, based on the reliable M4A2 Sherman tank chassis. This durable and versatile vehicle saw combat service from the North Africa campaign in 1943. By 1944, its gun was not powerful enough and it was rearmed with the new 90 mm gun, becoming the M36 90mm Gun Motor Carriage. This book details one of the only US armoured vehicles capable of dealing with the Panther and Tiger during the Battle of the Bulge
